    Yeah compiz and xfce4 are fine together. The only shortcoming is, at the moment, there's no, "window decorator", mode for xfwm4, meaning you need to install emerald as well.

    Edit: Should also point out that Xfwm4 supports xcompmgr for much simpler, non-accelerated compositing support. I've got compiz and xcompmgr and I just use xcompmgr.

    I think that as long as inode-directory icons are installed, there will be many regressions with any icon set (since everything will eventually inherit from gnome). I already submitted a bug to Ubuntu and commented on the bugzilla version, but no one has done anything about it. Anyway, here's a slightly more complete workaround than the one Ub1476 posted:

    #This part removes the problem (useless) icons.
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/scalable/places/inode-directory.svg
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/places/inode-directory.png
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/24x24/places/inode-directory.png
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/22x22/places/inode-directory.png
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/16x16/places/inode-directory.png

    #Log out. If for some reason the icons appear as blank after logging out, rebuild gnome-icon-theme's icon cache:
    sudo rm -f /usr/share/icons/gnome/icon-theme.cache
    sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -qf /usr/share/icons/gnome

    I made symbolic links to the folder.png/folder.svg files in the theme called gtk-directory.svg and inode-directory.svg (new names for those). That solved it for me.

    Commands:
    Code:
    ln -s ~/.icons/[themename]/scalable/folders.svg ~/.icons/[themename]/scalable/gtk-directory.svg
    ln -s ~/.icons/[themename]/scalable/folders.svg ~/.icons/[themename]/scalable/inode-directory.svg

    Yes, I thought of doing that too. Still, Perfectska04 mentioned on that specific thread about that subject that the inode-directory icon has the tendency of overriding any other folder icon, in situations where folder-open or directory-visiting-whatever would be used instead. Do you have the same issue now with those links?

    I'm still on Hardy, and won't upgrade to Intrepid until it reaches the RC stage, at least, so I can't test any of this myself, but I'm worried about this.

    ...And on my specific case, Compiz is a lot more possible in Xfce than in GNOME, in fact. Still, I stick with Xfwm4 with some mild compositor effects. Good enough for me.

    Like this:


    Still I'm not totally satisfied with the tasklist. And considering I didn't even add Conky back to the desktop, I reckon I'm about to faint with claustrophobia.
    Sort of.

    Yes, if you just add inode-directory to your themes it will fix the folders in the places menu, but it will break many, many things. Besides that does not solve the issue since we can't force every icon theme on the internet to add that ugly workaround just to conform to this bug.

    I recommend anyone who can to visit the bug pages and let them know this is important to you and should be fixed:
    http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=539286
