    xubuntu over ubuntu compiz crash

    hey, i have been using ubuntu since 10.04, and completely in love with it since then. yesterday i made a choice to switch to xfce since i did not like gnome neither unity (i am on ubuntu 12.10). So simply installed xfce desktop
    with
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xfce4
    tried and loved it, then i installed complete xfce desktop with
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop
    and everything was good, i customized it to my needs.
    The only problem is i cannot make compiz to work, previously it was working fine with unity(my previous desktop).
    i followed this http://www.webupd8.org/2012/11/how-t...u-1210-or.html
    and as they say to do
    Code:
    compiz --replace
    , after doint that all my window borders are gone
    then i have to fireup
    Code:
    xfwm4 --replace
    to make things normal.

    i have been trying this all day, but no luck

    Please help thank you

    EDIT: please if you need any log files, please do mention steps to get it.

    Re: xubuntu over ubuntu compiz crash

    Okay someone had changed the commands to install compiz in the link I gave you I have now fixed it so you can run the commands in the link now.

    After you run the command follow the directions for getting 12.04 xubuntu working and you should get it going like I did but the guide is for several different buntus and versions so you will have to read the directions carefully and you will have to undo whatever you tried from the other site first.
    Thanks
