Compiz shall live again!

I am on 17.3. Rosa, Ubuntu-built. Cinnamon 2 8 6. It doesnt work together with the Opacity extension. You must restart or so to make it work again if you enable both I think. Or uninstall Opacity before. You can either have Opacity or Wobbly Windows.
It works well although it says unsupported when you activate it. It stutters for some milliseconds after you have dragged windows, but thats the only downside so far. Thank you for adding it it was the only thing I was missing after switching from Ubuntu (Compiz).

Yes it works with cinnamon 2.8.6, but seems to be slow and does leave trails.

windows leave trails on the screen.
on LMDE, just create (as it does not exist) the file /etc/environment and add the lines below before restarting the computer:

CLUTTER_PAINT=disable-clipped-redraws:disable-culling
CLUTTER_VBLANK=True

this is in the doc, above. I have tested it, it work

It works on Arch Linux with Cinnamon 2.4.8 when editing ~/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions/wobbly-windows@mecheye.net/metadata.json

However, there's lots of leftover graphics until you select another window so it seems some cleanup work needs to be done.

To make it work on Cinnamon 2.4
Edit this file:
~/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions/wobbly-windows@mecheye.net/metadata.json

and change it to look something like this:
{
"last-edited": "1395633696",
"uuid": "wobbly-windows@mecheye.net",
"description": "Compiz shall live again!",
"cinnamon-version": [
"1.8",
"1.9",
"2.0",
"2.1",
"2.2",
"2.3",
"2.4"
],
"name": "Wobbly Windows"
}

Radi GROZNO, ali ne pišem zbog toga. Zašto ne prikazujete hrvatska slova: ??š?ž. Pa ako ste tzv. "otvoreni softver", podršku za sve jezike(a ne samo za "bogom dani") ste trebali omogu?it odma, a ne da vas se traži. ?ak ni potpis ne?ete da prikazujete, a kod moje prve prijave je bio prikazan. ????

Not quite working for me. Moving a window having this extension active is like drawing lots of ugly windows on my desktop.
BUT that could have all sorts of reasons, maybe it's the theme I am using or someting else.

This extension fits neatly in the Cinnamon philosophy. I love implicit effects. It would be great too if you take some of compiz similar effects like "Glide1", Glide2", Glide3", "zoom" and" dream". These effects are very elegant and it would be great if you can clone them! Wish you all the best!

Good works!!

Thank you for providing this extension.
I have been waiting for such extension. I gave 4 stars.

But the behavior of this extension is a little wrong.
I released window after moved it by dragging. The window moved to bottom-left slightly and residual image of the window was created.

Could you help me to solve this problem?

I gave 3 stars because it is very glitchy, but has potential :)

I can not get it to work. Do I have to activate it or something? Are there any sttings? I am running Nadia and not Olivia, maybe that's the reason for not working? I would so like to have this working. Please help.

Great extension, though it could be more elastic like old-times' Compiz.
@vincent:
System Settings-->Extensions-->Get More Online-->Refresh list

and you'll see it in the list. That is, if you're running Olivia (Mint 15).

Download this Extension,

Extract it somewhere, than copy/paste to "/home/<your hostname>/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions"

than go to System Settings > Extensions

Right click to a name and add to Cinnamon.

Other easy way, from System Settings > Get more online > Install or update selected.
