    [SOLVED] 8.10 I want to use metacity instead of compiz

    Basically just what the top says. It confilcts with some of my games so rather than deal with scripts and what not I just want to turn compiz off completley and use metacity. But how do I do that?

    To turn compiz off you would go to Appearance (Admin>Settings>Appearance) and then to the last tab (effects? I'm not at my Ubuntu box right now). and set effects to 'none'. This will turn off the compositing. Is that what you are looking to do?

    What Nithska said:
    "System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Visual Effects -> None"

    On 8.04, after turning Compiz off that way, I had a bit of a fight to be able to get Compiz to work again.
    Live long and prosper.
    And use lotsa Linux, BSD, and Emacs.
