    Ubuntu 14.04 - compiz shade function/animation broken by upgrade

    Hi all,

    Hopefully this is a simple problem. I recently upgraded 12.04 --> 14.04. There have a been a few hiccups, though minor. I noticed that I can no longer use the 'shade' or roll-up animation from compiz (it reels the window up into it's title bar, really handy for quickly peeking underneath). Instead, it seems to minimize the windows (kind of). I'm now getting an outline of a transparent 'window' over my browser, which seems to be the remnant of a 'save' dialog box.

    Any suggestions? I'd like to be able to make use of this feature.

    For some reason I didn't get a notification of your reply. How do I move this to another forum? Or should I just repost it?

    Also, I'm suddenly not getting notifications for any threads here. Any suggestions on why that might be?

    Shade no longer works with unity because the unity plugin for compiz
    has taken over the drawing of window decorations.
    Still works in a non unity session where the window decorations plugin is enabled.

    Hello,

    Is there any activity on this issue? Window shading is such an important function to some people's daily use window management. It is frustrating that something that has been a fundamental feature of X Windows window managers for the last 20 years is not working and that there has been no public discussion of a fix in the 1/2 year since Trusty was released.
