View Full Version : Emerald and HH II and JJ

Can I install and successfully run Emerald on any of those Kubuntu OS's? How do I do that?

I tried it this morning on JJ. My conclusion:
Install = yes
Successfully run = No.
It worked fine on HH and II.

i have emerald on both of my JJ machines and have since there were on HH , i also use compiz(idk might matter)to install it you just install the emerald package, to run it you will have to open krunner (alt+f2 is default) and run
@dibl did you have compiz running when you tested emerald?

Hmmmmm. I'm thinking I enabled emerald first, and compiz second, but now that you ask, I'm a little uncertain. They're both still installed, so I can always try it again. FYI, did you know emerald is no longer in the debian repos? It wasn't in JJ until just recently -- I looked a couple weeks ago and it wasn't there (at least not in 64-bit). I kinda though emerald was gone for good, until I saw it again the other day.

Here's a little experimental result, sith:
With nVidia driver 185.18.08, compiz and emerald don't run right -- launching an application crashes X.
I installed driver 185.19. I set compiz to use the emerald window decorator, and entered in the Konsole
compiz --replace and VOILA! I have compiz running with the emerald decorator and no apparent issues. So, apparently Beta driver 185.18.08 is buggy, but Beta driver 185.19 works OK with compiz.
That's what I know. On sidux, I also had to replace 185.18.08 and on that system I used 180.53 stable and it is running compiz satisfactorily, but since there is no emerald in the debian repos, that one uses the kwin window decorator.
