    Question XFCE help


    I am running Xubuntu on my gaming machine because apparently Gnome and KDE do not want to agree with my specific hardware specs. How do I turn on Compiz-Fusion in XFCE? I downloaded it through Synaptic but it is not running. And Second how do I install themes with XFCE? Do I just create a .themes folder in my Home directory? or am I confused?

    I have no idea about theme's in XFCE as I haven't used it much.

    For compiz though, just run compiz-manager to start it going. No doubt XFCE has something for managing what runs on start up, or you can add it to .xinitrc

    Which Graphics Card do you have?
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep -i vga
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I don't want to have to install Emerald. I just want Compiz-Fusion. Emerald annoys me.
