How people get moved by the word “Freespire”

29 04 2007

Note : I have changed the Title from How people get moved by the word “Proprietary” to “How people get moved by the word “Freespire”

From the Freespire Wiki Page

“Freespire is a community-involved, Linux-based operating system…….but also provides users the choice of including proprietary codecs, drivers and applications as they see fit….”

Sounds sweet isnt it 🙂

Feisty bugs !

21 04 2007

Ok, with a Fresh Install of feisty, I have found many bugs in the default shipped Desktop Effects – the Compiz and you can find them here in the launchpad

And also I am not sure why Feisty is not having installed the Gnome Compiz Manager installed by default eventhough the compiz is installed by default.

To install gnome-compiz-manager in feisty, open your terminal and type

sudo apt-get install gnome-compiz-manager

Configuring compiz using this tool can make many of the bugs disappear. Most of the bugs appear becoz some of the settings are not set properly by the default compiz and this tool helps to. For example, for many, the Cube Workspae was disappearing and after once they configured it using the Gnome Compiz Manager , it works !
