How to Enable Compiz in LMDE 201109 —

This tutorial will make Compiz run at boot without the need for fusion-icon.


1. Install remaining Compiz components

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install compiz compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported


2. Configure Compiz
– Go to Menu => Preferences => CompizConfig Settings Manager

– Check everything that you would like to include. like Wobbly Windows, Desktop Cube, 3D Windows, etc.

– However, you MUST check “Window Decorations”, otherwise the windows won’t have a title bar on them when you restart!


3. Set Compiz to start at boot

gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager compiz


4. Reboot
Once you do, you’ll start seeing all those fancy effects.





gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager gnome-wm


To Completely REMOVE Compiz

sudo apt-get purge compiz
