Now I want to know how you got the dome working?
What do you mean the "Dome"?

Also, another problem, the snapping windows thing, like Windows' Aero Snap, is also gone.
They will work when you log out and back in.

Compiz can really be a pain in the ass with intel. I had to go to advanced settings and bindings alot to get it to work the way I wanted. Sometimes when you want to activate one thing, it tells you it conflicts with the binding for another compiz setting and asks if you want to terminate that part ... But most of the time it is not really descriptive on what it means. It took me hours of fiddling and experimentation just to get it close to right, and I still run into conflicts. I recommend just changing one thing at a time and giving it a go before changing anything else. In the end though, It looks really nice and is (for the most part) worth all the cursing and slamming the desk that you go through.


Can I ask what desktop environment you are using (KDE,Xfce,etc)? ... I believe the default Ubuntu is Unity, and in my experience Compiz runs a lot smoother in GNOME (or at least for me it does.)

When I posted this, I was using GNOME, but after giving KDE a try, I like it, a lot. KDE was what got me into Linux, and now it seems to fascinate me again. I don't like messing around with my Ubuntu install because if it gets to the point where I can't even access my browser, I'm SOL *Unless I boot into Win7 ofcourse* Also, after trying to change one thing at a time earlier, I got stuck in this mess. I think I'll test it out on in VirtualBox before I attempt any real changes on my desktop though.

It didn't go back to the way it was, it was stick stuck in the corners.

Sorry, I didn't see that until now, anyway, I'll try to post a way.

I'm trying to use Desktop Recorder to upload it as a Video, but no matter where, Google Picasa, Photobucket, or even Youtube, it shows a green screen with nothing else. I don't know how else to send it, except uploading it to a website and sending you the link, but to save town, I'll show you what happens when I move an unmaximized window to the side of the screen *When Metacity/Compiz should make it take up that side of the screen*

When it goes to the edges it should take up half of the screen, but it doesn't

This is the video with the green screen I'm talking about
