    I have never been able to get flashback w/metacity to work even slightly. Therefore I will not bother with it. I have however gotten flashback w/compiz to work.
    Right now though it will not allow my conky to run so I am in Unity with conky working just fine. I don't understand why there would be a difference.

    Ironic.

    I re-installed again today and I think I'm worse off than I was a week ago. *sigh*
    Guess I'll just ride this puppy out for a while.

    Screenshot came installed with no functionality. There is no button to click to take a screenie.
    Cairo Dock is a beta version and there is no text to go with the things in the dock so it's hard to tell what is what unless you can tell by the icon like Firefox.
    There may be a setting somewhere but you'd think it would come on by default.

    Yep indeed. There was a lot of stuff intended for 14.04 that got pushed back to the future.

    The flashback w/metacity session is working quite well for me in both Ubuntu and Edubuntu ATM, it's a bit problematic in Ubuntu GNOME though.

    I do wish we could correct the menu:

    I think Alberts has a patch

    That in red reminds me of a movie.

    Thanks! I signed on to all of them as affected.
    I have one more issue with flashback w/compiz: my conky won't run. It runs fine in Unity. In flashback w/metacity it works but there is a black background and Cairo Dock is all messed up.

    It gets some sort of X server error but only in flashback w/compiz.

    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7259:~$ conky -c /home/cavsfan/.conkyrc.vindsl
    Conky: unknown variable 
    Conky: forked to background, pid is 30059
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7259:~$ 
    Conky: desktop window (160000b) is subwindow of root window (26e)
    Conky: window type - normal
    Conky: drawing to created window (0x3800002)
    Conky: drawing to double buffer
    X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
      Major opcode of failed request:  55 (X_CreateGC)
      Resource id in failed request:  0x3800003
      Serial number of failed request:  184
      Current serial number in output stream:  186
    And it only happens on new ISOs within the past week. I installed twice and no bueno. I am just using the 331.38 nvidia driver in the repositories:
    Code:
    cavsfan@cavsfan-MS-7529:~$ dpkg -l | grep nvidia
    ii  nvidia-331                                            331.38-0ubuntu4                                       amd64        NVIDIA binary driver - version 331.38
    ii  nvidia-libopencl1-331                                 331.38-0ubuntu4                                       amd64        NVIDIA OpenCL Driver and ICD Loader library
    ii  nvidia-opencl-icd-331                                 331.38-0ubuntu4                                       amd64        NVIDIA OpenCL ICD
    ii  nvidia-prime                                          0.6                                                   amd64        Tools to enable NVIDIA's Prime
    ii  nvidia-settings                                       331.20-0ubuntu8                                       amd64        Tool for configuring the NVIDIA graphics driver
    Any clue to why this is happening? Am I missing a component? I surely can't be the only one.

    I no more than posted the above and checked for updates:
    Code:
    The following packages will be upgraded:

    25 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    That fixed both the screenshot buttons and now my conky runs in flashback w/compliz. Cooking with gas!
