Description Jim 2007-02-26 21:19:10 UTC
Description of problem: Whenever I open a new window the new window always appears too high on the desktop, with the title bar underneath the top panel. This is the same as the problem reported here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=249002 Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): compiz-0.3.6-2.fc6.src.rpm How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to "System->Proferences->Desktop Effects" 2. Click the "Enable Desktop Effects" button so that it becomes enabled and then click the "close" button. 3. Open any new program, its windows will be too high. Actual results: New windows are too high, title bar is hidden. Expected results: New windows should not open below a panel. Additional info: To fix this follow these steps: 1. Run 'gconf-editor' (must do this under your user account, not root) 2. Add "place" to the bottom of this key: "/apps/compiz/general/allscreens/ options/active_plugins" (I found this key here: http://www.go-compiz.org/index.php?title=Gconf- Editor) 3. Close gconf-editor and the change should immediately take affect IMHO the "place" plugin should be enabled by default.
Comment 1 Jim 2007-02-26 21:22:26 UTC
Forgot to mention that although freenx doesn't appear to be able to use the compiz desktop effects, it still suffers from this same bug. Even after using gconf to enable the "place" plugin my windows still start too high within my freenx sessions. I don't know how to fix this problem in freenx.
Comment 2 Sam Varshavchik 2007-03-02 01:27:01 UTC
This happens to me too. After enabling compiz, newly windows are opened too high, hiding the top frame. This happens even if I remove the top panel. New windows are opened with their top frame completely off screen. I confirm that adding the place plugin, using gconf, fixes the problem. This should definitely be the default configuration.
Comment 3 Steve 2007-03-02 13:28:21 UTC

(In reply to comment #5) > seems to be fixed now.. Not for me it isn't. I am running F7T3 and it still has the same problem. I cannot emphasise how annoying this is. I agree with #2 - this should be default configuration unless there is an over-riding reason for it not to be.

Comment 10 Kristian Høgsberg 2007-08-14 18:55:34 UTC
Is this still a problem? Does gconftool-2 --unset /apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/active_plugins and then log out and back in help?
Comment 11 Dave Russell 2007-08-14 21:23:25 UTC
Nope that doesn't help, F7 is still broken for me in this respect. Unfortunately your workaround doesn't help either. I'm currently working with desktop effects disabled to make the machine usable.
Comment 12 Kristian Høgsberg 2007-08-14 21:52:46 UTC
Sorry, I should have linked to the latest build: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=102411 any better?
Comment 13 Kristian Høgsberg 2007-08-15 22:30:55 UTC
The latest build: compiz-0.5.2-5.0ec3ec.fc8.src.rpm should fix this, along with the gconftool-2 workaround mentioned in comment 10. Download builds here or in rawhide tomorrow: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=104128
Comment 14 Dave Russell 2007-08-16 11:06:43 UTC
hmm, I've just pulled the compiz-fusion stuff from http://blog.kagesenshi.org which certainly did fix all of my issues. I have another affected machine that is still vanilla updated F7 though, so I'll give those updated rpms a try at the weekend. Any other deps required when applying to F7?
Comment 15 Steve 2007-08-16 14:58:44 UTC
it appears also again in rawhide. plugin "place" is missing. compiz-0.5.2-4.0ec3ec.fc8
