No window decorator

Bug #96912 reported by Vincent on 2007-03-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
compiz (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz-core

I'm on Xubuntu, and want to install Compiz. However, compiz in Ubuntu uses metacity. If you, like me, want to install compiz-core then you are left out without a window manager, shouldn't gtk-window-decorator be available?

I just found out about compiz-gtk:


OpenGL window and compositing manager - Gtk window decorator

This package contains a window decorator that uses Gtk to provide a look and
feel similar to that of the metacity window manager.


So that probably is the gtk-window-decorator I was looking for. However, it depends on Metacity, which is of course not what I want on Xubuntu.
