    xfce + compiz unminimize window problems

    I've just installed xubuntu 12.10 (actually Voyager 12.10) and it's very nice. Themes are great, it's snappy, and simple. But I notice that xfwm is lacking. It's supposed to be low on system resources, of course, but I want something a bit sharper so I installed compiz.

    I'm fairly happy with the results except I cannot understand the bug I'm having.

    I click the open program in the "open windows area" on the panel and it minimizes/unminimizes fine.

    I click the minimize button on the titlebar and it minimizes, but won't unminimize without having to right click->unminimize. (i.e. I can't just click the open program on the panel to make it re-open)

    What can I do? I like compiz with xfce a lot because it improves my video playback as well and really doesn't add much weight to my system.

    TRy use other gtk theme when you use compiz and try unminimize option to see if work.

    Make sure that you have installed:
    libdecoration0 & libdecoration0-dev

    XFCE has some of its own compositing and tweaks under Window Manager Tweaks.
    “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can".

    I'm not sure what you mean but I tried different gtk themes from the appearance settings and changed to different window decorations from the dconf-editor and I still have the same problem.

    I did not have one of the packages you suggested installed, though I do now and I still have the same trouble.

    If it helps I do get this error when I do compiz --replace:
    /home/myname/.gtkrc-2.0:13: error: unexpected character `=', expected character `]'
    compiz (decor) - Warn: No default decoration found, placement will not be correct

    I think I fixed it. I turned off conky and now it works fine.
