So I just installed 10.10 on my wife's laptop. A laptop that is totally capable of handling compositing effects. However I used a liveUSB of 10.10 netbook edition, just because I had already been using it to get a couple of netbooks up and running. I figured that it was the same thing as 10.10 desktop edition, except for one included the netbook interface and the other did not. But I now think that there's more differences than just that. I thought that my little netbook didn't do compositing effects because the OS detected that the hardware was not quite what was needed, but now I think that it is because the netbook edition is set up differently for less powerful systems.
So, I spent a good while getting things up and running, getting files transferred over, etc. I could just install 10.10 desktop from scratch to get it, but I'm wondering if anyone knows how to get compiz up and running.
I've installed the 'compiz icon' and the package 'compiz' but don't get any effects, my 'effects' tab under 'appearances' still has all options grayed out, etc. At this point I don't know what else to do... Any ideas? Thanks.
