Installed CompizConfig Settings Manager and are wondering where the custom visual effects setting has gone? The way this works has changed in Ubuntu 8.04.
In order to manually configure Compiz, you need to enable the
Appearance Preferences. In Ubuntu 7.10, this was done by installing
CompizConfig Settings Manager. A new tool, called Simple Compiz Config Settings
Manager now needs to be installed to enable the option. Whether or not you want
the Simple CCSM, you need to install it to enable the custom effects level.
Install Simple Compiz Config Settings Manager:
sudo apt-get install simple-ccsm
Now you can switch to custom effects. Click the
Preferences button in
Appearance Preferences to open the simple configuration tool. Simple CCSM is
nice, but to access all the options you need the full CCSM.
Install CompizConfig Settings Manager:
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
You can run CCSM from the
System->Preferences->Advanced Desktop Effects
Settings menu item. Note that to use Simple CCSM or CCSM, you need to have the
Custom effects option selected.
