simple compiz questions (intrepid)
 
Hello,

I am trying to get started with compiz but there are some things I can't figure out:


1. How can I set compiz to start by default? I found information on the net talking about system -> settings -> desktop effects, but I don't have a "desktop effects" option on Intrepid. Am I missing a package or something?



2. I normally use * a 3 x 2 workspace. With compiz on I can cycle through the workspaces side ways but not up & down. Is there something I should do or check?


3. Once I start compiz, say with "compiz --replace", I lose the window bars. I tried using "gtk-window-decorator --replace" but this didn't give me my windows topbars again. Any hints?


Thanks in advance for any information,
--
Francisco

System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> tab Visual Effects, but it seems
that it is not being saved correctly:

What you see is just the default settings. There are a million ways to
configure compiz. You need to install compizconfig-settings-manager,
which will put a menu entry somewhere in System IIRC. Then you can lose
yourself in your compiz config. Don't forget to eat and drink ;)

Dunno, I never started it this way. You might find hints in

*What I use is compiz-git, which installs everything you need to have
compiz work...
