Re: [gnome-flashback] Compiz, XFCE, Gnome issue.

I don't know if there is any PPA, also I don't know if emerald will work, but you can try. These days I don't use compiz anymore.

Also from what I understand now is that you have build compiz without metacity. It should work - gtk-window-decorator should fall back to cairo theme, but it is crashing because of missing theme key - it is bug. So you have another option:

- copy/replace attached gschema file to:

- recompile schemas
sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas

Now gtk-window-decorator should start as you will have theme key under metacity schema.

P.S. Please reply also to mailing list - don't send only to me. Maybe someone on list will be able to help you better then me.

maybe i should install emerald instead, not to deal with metacity themes?
maybe there's a repository or PPA where we can get compiz 0.9 or 0.8 - doesn't matter, but with all the dependencies

thank you! thought our repository had latest versions. my is 3.14. downloaded DEB: metacity 3.18, metacity-common 3.18, libmetacity-private 3.18,but they fail to install upon each other depencies

metacity 3.18.x and 3.16.x depends on GTK+ 3.16 so that might be another problem.

Sorry for bugging you, i'm newbie, was setting and recompiling Compiz for two days now to get to this point and feel little dizzy. As a linux-jedi can you point me the way on how to get metacity 3.16, won't stand another couple of days if researching and reading forums - copy/pasting error output)

Easiest way probably would be to use compiz tarball as that release works with metacity 3.14. Otherwise if you want to build compiz from trunk than you will need to revert this:

You need metacity 3.16.0 or newer.

Having a hard time compiling compiz from lp:compiz
it builds with gtk-window-decorator, gnome support and FS change notification only. Without Metacity Theme Support

maybe that's why upon start gtk-window-decorator gives an error

GLIB-GIO-ERROR: Settings schema 'org. gnome. metacity' does not contain a key named 'theme'

only thing that is marked not found in cmake log is libmetacity-private. even though it's installed in /usr/lib
