[SOLVED] Compiz fusion-icon won't run

Hello,

I'm new to Arch Linux and I've just installed it on my laptop. I want to run Compiz on XFCE: I tried the methods on the Arch Wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … icon.22.29) on replacing XFWM with Compiz. The second method doesn't work, only the first one works, but I don't want to use that one.

I've tried the third method, but when I followed the instructions and I rebooted my computer, I've got no window manager at all: I have to manually load Compiz.

The only thing that works right now is following the third method and also do the first one at together.


But I just want to do either the second or the third method. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?


Thank you in advance.


(Sorry for bad English).

Fixed, I just used the same method but for root :-)

It is your system, so do as you will.   I really do not recommend running compiz as root.  Enough said.

Hi, I didn't mean running Compiz as root: I just edited this file: "/etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-session.xml" to make Compiz start for all users. I followed the method without the fusion icon this time (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … icon.22.29) and everything works now.

Thank you very much for the help.

(P.S.: I don't know how to mark this thread as SOLVED).
