I use Fedora 14 with Compiz on Gnome.

I'd like to change some settings of Compiz with CompizConfig Settings Manager, but when I change a setting in there, those settings are not being applied.

Sometimes, Compiz seems to "forget" that I made changes. Loging out and back in doesn't help, as well as reboots CompizConfig shows the changes settings in the plugin preferences, but they just don't work.

What am I doing wrong?

Just stumbled apon this when I had the same problem. Run the command:


Add it to your startup applications in System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications.
