Re: Compiz Fusion brings all Gnome with itself

 Hi,
 
 I've installed Compiz Fusion on my machine using packages. Installing it
 from ports was unsuccessful since it needs gio-fam-backend which in turn
 needs glib-2.16.3 to be installed. I don't really want to update my glib
 since I don't know if I need to update all my system (or at least those
 packages which depend on it) as well or not after updating glib (I just
 didn't want to take the risk). Anyhow, installing Compiz Fusion from ports
 brought with it all Gnome:
 
[snip]
 
 especially, 'ps -ax' now shows these two processes running:
 -
 865  ??  I  0:00.15 /usr/local/libexec/gconfd-2 14
 876  ??  I  0:00.03 gnome-pty-helper
 -
 
 How can I stop them from running when I start X? And how can I remove all
 these useless Gnome packages that I won't use? Do I need to update
 everything that depends on it if I decide to update glib?
 
 Thanks a lot :)

You *might* be able to build compiz-fusion without all those gnome
packages by:

# cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/compiz-fusion
# make config

and unticking the gconf option and then building it.

If I was in your position, I'd leave it unless you're short of disk
space or other resources eg. cpu, ram. Gnome is pretty much essential
if you're going to use X a lot since a lot of things depend on it.
Although, if you're running KDE  associated apps you might be able to
get away without it.

glib is just another port/package ie. not part of the base system and
you can add/update it without any ill-effects. Check
/usr/ports/UPDATING first though, as you always should before
adding/upgrading ports/packages.

HTH.

I'm glad I asked the question!  By the way ccsm works also within gnome, 
so you can use both gconf and ccsm under gnome.

  I have it working now but there are two issues that I seem not to be

  won't start and I get no window borders and can't move them.  Solution
  is to open the terminal window and run emerald --replace .  Second
  issue is with compiz, I open ccsm to configure my 3d effects but they
  won't get saved, it will let me select them or unselect them but once
  I close ccsm and run it again every change is gone and the defaults
  are back.  Any Ideas?  Do the users have to be members of a special

  I found what the problem was under KDE, in your tutorial you tell us to
  run these commands as a regular user:
 
  compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp
  emerald --replace
 
  I found that both of these commands need a  sign at the end of each of

  compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp 
  emerald --replace 
 
  once you run them like this, KDE will stop acting weird and starts
  functioning correctly.  Now when you restart kde it no longer starts
  compiz automatically and you will get all the window borders and you are

 I don't know about KDE, but I am using compiz-fusion (manually) in gnome
 without having installed ubuntulooks.
 Thanks for your investigation and feedback. If you come up with a
 complete set of settings, I will update the article.

The only way to fix gnome and get the settings to save was to delete the user 
and recreate it again.  I found out what causes compiz to act weird like this 
is when you try to run compiz with different options than the ones you gave 
me.  If that happens than you have to recreate the user account.  Deleting 
the .config directory is not enough, don't know why.  

Do not forget to update your article by adding the  at the end of the 
compiz and emerald commands.  If they get run without  sign at the end, 
compiz will start acting weird on you.

Thanks for your help, it's working very well now.

Thanks, I just updated the article, you may want to have a look at it 
again. Quick link here:


http://store.itsyourftp.com/~sonic2000gr/freebsd/compiz-fusion/article.html

I added the  and the script for GNOME.
I found out compiz-fusion saves setting in gconf, if you have it 
compiled with gconf support (like I did). My guess is if this is not 
selected, it will use the .compizconfig folder. I have not tested this 
though (but maybe will recompile just to see).
It is quite possible that deleting the apps/compiz key in gconf will 
restore any weird behaviour, instead of actually recreating the user.

I have entered this in Sessions as a Startup Program and it works fine.
I am also able to change settings with ccsm (which should also be run as

Now, I don't really know where these are saved, documentation mentions a

Actually just found out there are three different backends for saving 
settings, according to their wiki:


http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/CCSM#head-340a755b8f870831a20b51544a116f6dc4795735

namely gconf, KConfig and flat files

(look at the bottom of the page)

I have compiled compiz-fusion with gconf support, the settings in 
gconf-editor are under apps/compiz.

You may wish to check what options you used during compilation.

I will update the article tomorrow to reflect all this.

1. Use the port/package.
2. Every now and then I see messages fly by in which you can find
   exactly which flags/options to use.
3. You are right, there should be documentation...

Alphons

P.S. I found this stashed in a folder meant for future reference:

 Assuming you have already setup you X server for composite, to run
 compiz-fusion enter these commands:

 (as normal user)

 compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-dekstop-hints ccp 
 emerald --replace 

Credits to Manolis Kiagias :-)

Never thought this was such a sought-after feature :)

Anyway, here is a quick article I just wrote:

Your feedback is welcome.

I agree.  There should be docs for Compiz-Fusion on FreeBSD.  There isn't
any right now as far as I know.

 instructions since they are written for a couple of linux distros.
