I have tried the sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra in the terminal window but it said that it can't find it, so if anyone of you know a way to get the extra animations I would be thankful for an answer!
It might sound ridiculous, but I want to prevent closing a window in Ubuntu. I want to provide to my users a highly secure environment, without any desktop environment with just one window open. Now I want to make sure user can't close that window. Is there any way to hack around with compiz so that there is no way a user can close the window.
So I'm using Kubuntu on my laptop. Awhile back, I made Compiz work with it via some tutorial online. But since then, whenever I open an application that starts in fullscreen mode, I have to resize the window in order to use the window's exit/minimize/maximize buttons.
I am running 11.10 and i need to have a vnc window for the connection to my windows 7 box (booo hiss etc) , i have two screens attached to my pc.
i would like to have a fullscreen dual window VNC window on one of the two workspaces of my ubuntu desktop , currently i can get close to this by manually resizing the vnc window as big as i can on the second workspace when it opens .

so i've got the latest version of flash for linux (the one that's gonna be the last version, 18.104.22.1687) and firefox 25.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.13.10.1 and the described behaviour does not happen on youtube (which runs flashplayer as far as i can tell), but happens in other video players, like jwplayer (use
Oh yeah, also when using VLC as a playlist it seems to switch between 2 players. I might be able to remove fullscreen from 1 of them for the other to then be in fullscreen. I then try to come out of the one in fullscreen but it won't let me unless there is no active video in it. Even if I pause I can't change it.
Is anyone else seeing this? When I use any QT apps such as VLC or Smplayer compiz acts extremely buggy. Whenever I right click in a qt app for a context menu it shows up in the unity launcher as another window (and when I was in xfce with compiz it showed up in the taskbar as "untitled window").
I want to use the onboard keyboard to enter text into a form in a website I have open in firefox. Ideally I want to run firefox in fullscreen mode. In non-fullscreen mode onboard comes up no problem, but when I enter fullscreen onboard disappears, and doesn't show until I leave fullscreen mode again.
