    3d works perfectly, but not compiz

    Hello. I've ditched ubuntu for xubuntu 11.04. I love it. The marvellous grid based desktop...the beautiful theme...the ease of customisation...everything. I switched because I didn't like unity.

    However, I now have a problem. After installing the proprietary ati drivers for my raedon 5xxx card, compz still does not work at all. A lot of other people have been having problems with extreme lag when dragging windows (my unity-likeing school friend included). I don't have this problem because compiz won't work. The weird thing is that in any other 3d tasks the card performs better than on 10.10. For example I can now play oblivion without the characters lacking faces.

    Anyone else experiencing this? I miss the cube...

    Edit: what gives? If you post in all caps, it un-caps it?

    I did the same, ditched Ubuntu for Xubuntu in 11.04. To be honest, I actually like it a little more than the old Gnome environment...similar looks if you want them, but it's snappier. Anyway, I have an NVidia card if that matters, and I really really really miss the Scale and Expo functions. I think they are the best features compiz has to offer as far as productivity is concerned... It's getting hard to live without them, I'm starting to think about dropping back to the LTS, because I am not quite ready for Unity...

    HuZah!

    This guide here works perfectly! A good emerald theme that suits greybird (the default xubuntu 11.04 theme) is "Tigris". In emerald do a bit tweaking to fix the useles window resize handles.
