Yes, by dragging the windows. A small amount of lag is acceptable but I get a noticeable gap between my cursor and the window corner.

Like I warned earlier and so does everyone else...if you want to experience what E17 is really capable of then you need to use Bodhi.

 

Will definitely give Bodhi a shot.

Out of curiosity why are you sticking to 12.04?

 

Uni and laziness. I've got it all set up just the way I need it and beyond installing a few packages like I just did, I don't want to change anything until I'm done with this semester.

I wouldn't have considered any of that to be mean but thank you for your concern.

for the time being I'm going back to the dark theme with the conky. The adding of composting (which the dock required to do anything but the most basic theme) actually gave me window tearing, although minor, where is without it's fine. Plus I wasn't using it much.

Anyone know why KDE and Openbox don't like each other? Every time I have the two installed on the same system they erase (at least that's the only explanation I have) each other's installed program lists (meaning the programs haven't been touched but both KDE and openbox don't think there are programs installed and thus I have to use a terminal to run programs). This is really annoying because I had an awesome setup using both KDE and openbox for my GUI but the fact that there are no "default programs" for filetypes and I have no working runners or program lists making me have to open up a terminal and then launch things is almost deal breaker. I hate being Murphy's Law incarnate. redface.gif

KDE using Openbox WM?

Yeah. I know it sounds strange but it was really awesome because it was faster than KDE without compositing and still allowed me to use the most important features of KDE and have some of the nice eye-candy of it. But for some reason if either KDE or openbox get updated then *poof* there goes any program list and program associations. That's my assumption as I can't figure out where KDE would get it's program list from or where openbox would get it's either.

Compiz used to perform better than kwin and metacity seems to work too (though I've never rated metacity). But these days I quite like kwin.

wouldn't ripping nepomuk and likewise rarely used but deeply KDE services that tend to bog things down be a more effective way of making kde faster?
