Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

1) release: 11.04
2) version: compiz 1:0.9.4git20110322-0ubuntu5
3) what I expect to happen: binding the function "show desktop" to the bottom tight screen edge corner works (as it did before)
4) what happened instead: it doesn't work any more. keyboard binding to super+d works still, but screen edge doesn't.

Same problem here. Actually, there does not seem to be any tab to activate edge/corners in compizconfig anymore. There was with ubuntu 10.10. Now only super+d triggers "show desktop".

I can confirm this bug too. I tried to bind left-right edges for switching between desktops, but that doesn't work in Ubuntu 11.04. I suppose it's a Unity bug...

Have applied all updates, and still no luck with this... :(
Bazon, can you bind "left-right edges + left click" for switching between desktops (for example, in Rotate Cube). And try clicking on screen edges.

Same problem with me.
Combining Screen Edge actions with mouse keys does not work for all Compiz plugins.
Firstly I suspected the grid plugin, because of the new win7 like functions, but disabling does not show any effect on this bug.
What's strange: Using Screen Edges without further keys does work!

I have just upgraded to 11.10 (actually I did a clean install but preserved my /home). I am trying to configure LeftBottom for expo plugin and RightBottom for scale plugin. It works at first but once I logout and login again it stops working. If I erase the settings in CCSM and reconfigure the settings work again until next reboot.

I had this problem. However putting compiz into the startup applications solved it.

Name: Compiz
Command: bash -c "sleep 3; compiz --replace"

Saw this solution somewhere else, but cant find the link
