Need help getting compiz cube configed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok, so this is the goal:




this is what I have so far:



so the first thing I'm trying is skydome, seen in the first pic.

so I go to ccsm



its enabled. But, after restarting compiz twice then logging out and logging back in, no skydome. So, ccsm has acted up for me when I've used it in the past so I go to the mate-gconf thingy



and everything is already enabled. I'm going to guess I'm just missing some setting here, but so far I haven't been able to find it.

do you have all the plugins for compiz installed? those are 3d windows on the first image, and the second one is the "cube" set as  a sphere.

no, I plan to get those two done when I can get skydome working. as far as I can tell skydome should work with just the cube and rotate cube plugins, but its not working for me

it might be that gnome 3 isn't all that compatible with compiz any longer, i'm assuming that is gnome-shell or cinnamon you are running there.

I've been having some gnome 3 related problems though- plan to make a new thread as if for a completely different reason
