Metacity Compositing in Ubuntu 9.10

For Those who have problems with compiz (Super old GPU etc.) you can use Metacity’s Compositing Feature(Doesn’t give fancy effects but you can use use an App or Dock that requires compositing because it uses your CPU instead of GPU).

First Press Alt+F2.

Type gconf-editor

Click Edit ->Find

type compositing_manager and tick Search also in Key Names.

Click Find.

Click the item in lower window

tick the box in front of  compositing_manager.

    Thanks for your help. I’m using Gnome-Do with the docking bar but couldn’t get it going. Thanks again.

      But yeah Docky split from Gnome-Do.Try Docky v2 (Docky without Gnome-Do) from the Docky PPA for more features
