Quick Update on No Title Bar with Compiz

Posted in Linux, ubuntu by microwavebiscuit on April 21, 2007

The Google helped me find this: No title bar – window manager problem – Page 2 – Ubuntu Forums

Which I then followed some instructions to modify my xorg.conf to add the following line:

Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

In the device section of my video card. The whole section looks like this now:

Section "Device"
Identifier "GeForce FX 5500"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
VideoRam 256000
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

Once I added that line and restarted X I got my title bars. I’m pretty sure that I had that line in my old xorg.conf prior to upgrade and it must have been replaced with a new conf file during the upgrade. Now I get all my title bars and such in Beryl and Compiz.

    I had title bars, but I disabled them in ccsm just to see how it looks. Now I cannot find where the setting is? Do you know where the title bar toggle setting in ccsm is?

    i tried this and it messed my system up and was starting at the command prompt. so i inserted my livecd and changed it back and then rebooted and then it was better again… phew!””

    Thanks, that solved it! I’ve had that problem on and off for years, but maybe I can enjoy Compiz all the time now 🙂
