Al fin ventanas gelatinosas en LinuxMint... apenas lo instale y no le veo falla alguna. Seguiré al pendiente, por lo pronto ¡muchas gracias! :D

Cinnamon 21 + Nvidia 515 results in after images. Hopefully it can be fixed. Compiz shall be remembered!

Forgot to mention: Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon Cinnamon Version 5.0.5 Kernel Version 5.11.0-37-generic Not sure how much it matters since this issue is effects versions dating back months, but no harm in including it I suppose.

Same here, unfortunately while it works initially (albeit leaving artifacts behind when moved around), after disabling and re-enabling it stops working entirely.

broken for me on mint 20.1 cinnamon too, goes all glitchy when its dragged around, pretty much unusable Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon Cinnamon Version 4.8.6 Kernel Version 5.4.0-77-generic

Don't work in Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon. Leaves artifacts and then just stops working.

under Mint Ulyssa 20.1 it runs well at first, but then the whole system hangs, which can only be fixed with a hard reset. Only extensions that work under Mint should be stored in the extension. Any hard reset are poison for the system

This seems to be the only "compiz-like" animation that doesn't work on Cinnamon LM 20. I would be surprised if the functionality is revived for future versions of Cinnamon.(i.e. 4.8?). In any case is pity not count with this beautiful effect in Cinnamon. Is not like that?

This only works on XFCE, right? Here on my Cinnamon does not work, and the XFCE version that I installed on a notebook, weaker than my PC, works perfectly

Please it will be appreciated an "update" to this extension !!! THX

I followed up the instruction of Sadi Yamusak, but after reboot, appears the login screen I type my password and then black screen with the mouse only.... So for me it doesn't work. System LM 19.2, Cinnamon version with Nvidia card and recommended driver installed. So I recovered back to an operative system with Timeshift and delete the extension :-(

This is really glitchy, laggy and stuttery, leaving atrifacts behind it. Needs some updating.

Notes: 1) It works after adding the line "CLUTTER_PAINT=continuous-redraw" to the file "/etc/environment" AND ther rebooting the computer. 2) It supersedes the extension "Opacify Windows" (which fades out the current window that the user is resizing or dragging) so the user cannot have both of these two windows effects.

Strange, doesn't work here on Linux Mint 19.1 64-bit, although I've added "CLUTTER_PAINT=continuous-redraw" to "/etc/environment" :-(
RobertBorst-5 years ago
Hi, It seems to work with the CLUTTER_PAINT=continuous-redraw option on Linux Mint 19.1 64 bit. It leaves some shadows it you move too fast

Well, for those who can benefit from this new fix, it looks like new life has been given to the WW extension - at least on the machines I've tested. It works nearly as well as the original Compiz version, mainly just a little slower/wobblier. The l33tlinuxh4x0r fix will increase CPU load marginally (but so does Compiz for that matter). Just add (in root) the following line to: /etc/environment CLUTTER_PAINT=continuous-redraw Cheers!

Loved the effect in LXCE WITH cOMPIZ. Wish I was a programer. Can anyone help?

Please update for Mint 18.2 and make Compiz live again!

The ghosting effect can be eliminated (from https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/669/wobbly-windows/): Add the line CLUTTER_PAINT=disable-clipped-redraws:disable-culling CLUTTER_VBLANK=True in /etc/environment file.

It doesn't work well for me unfortunately. I'm using Antergos with Cinnamon 3.4; It wobbles fine, but it shows "ghosts" of the window while moving similar to how older versions of windows would show copies of the window you dragged around the screen. Is there any way to fix this?
