Subject description: for precise puppy
 

i would like to request compiz for precise puppy.

i know that lucid puppy's compiz works in precise but it also breaks some core precise things by overwriting various libs.
compiz from the PPM works but the window decorator fails.. the same thing happens when compiling it from scratch.

so if anyone either knows how to get the window decorator working in precise.... or can compile a precise version, i would be very grateful

cheers Smile

Hi...

I certainly would add my vote but how do I to get it to work in the first place? I'm not seeing any configuration panel that would allow me to enable features. Question

Also, when I type "compiz" in a terminal, I get...

# compiz
compiz (core) - Error: Another window manager is already running on screen: 0


Regards...

hi ardvark '

thanks for the interest! compiz needs a compositing window manager to work such as xfce http://www.wuala.com/666philb/Documents/xfce4_4.8.0.3_sfs4.sfs/

you may also need to run
Code:
compiz --replace
in a terminal

hi peebee,

i've already tried compizpup and like it a lot. ... but i must admit that i'm a precise / raring type of guy Smile

so the request is specifically for precise puppy, and it's something i've been having goes at getting working (unsuccessfully) since the 5.4 betas.

i'm hoping someone will solve the lack of windows decoration

cheers
