Compiz Fusion won't start?
« on: June 25, 2011, 08:16:18 PM »
So, in my attempts at making my computer beautiful, I've installed GNOME (and apparently Metacity) and Emerald and seemingly all of the necessary programs for getting Compiz fusion to work, but this is what I get when I type "sudo fusion-icon" into the terminal:

 * Detected Session: unknown
 * Searching for installed applications...
Backend     : ini
Integration : true
Profile     : default
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fusion-icon", line 57, in <module>
    from FusionIcon.interface import choose_interface
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/FusionIcon/interface.py", line 22, in <module>
    from util import env
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/FusionIcon/util.py", line 422, in <module>
    decorators = CompizDecorators(_installed)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/FusionIcon/util.py", line 229, in __init__
    self.command = context.Plugins['decoration'].Display['command']
KeyError: 'decoration'



I'm not sure if it's because I have multiple window decorators or what, but this is starting to be slightly frustrating.  Any suggestions?

What specific Linux build are you running?

Classic GNOME? No Unity?

Ubuntu, for example, comes with Compiz pre-loaded and you just need to install Compiz Config Settings Manager to tweak and work with it. Compiz is broken in the newest Ubuntu though due to that stinky Unity thing.

I can tell you though that you don't need Metacity, and you need to have Compiz started before you can play with Emerald. (What are you going to do with Emerald?)

I'm running Zenwalk 7.0 Openbox edition.  I'm pretty sure I was using classic GNOME, and Zenwalk didn't come with Compiz installed, sadly.


For the moment, I got tired of it and uninstalled compiz and I think all of the other stuff required other than GNOME.  I might try again later, but for the moment I'm fine with Openbox and all of it's simplicity.

Just curious, why Openbox?

It's lightweight and it's what I had laying around at the time.
