I noticed that if you put it in the session before manually running "gala --replace" once, it won't work. try hitting alt + f2, typing "gala --replace", then double checking the session file to make sure its still set to use gala, and then re-log and it should load gala as expected.


I'm not following you on this. So load terminal and type in: gala --replace. Is that right?

terminal works too, you just need to put that command either in the terminal or use xfce's alt + f2 run prompt.

Ok I did that. Then logged out and it's still the same. So I restarted and still the same thing. Maybe it's the theme I am using or the fact that I installed xfce4 on Mint 13, then installed gala?

It shouldn't have any effect on the theme aside from the window decorations. Are you getting the window shadows and animations?

I'm not getting anything in regards to gala. I guess I could start from a clean slate and just install Xubuntu.

Hi,
I successful installed Gala on Xubuntu 13.04, but I have a question about workspace management:
in Elementary OS the workspace are shown and managed at bottom with the possibility of move windows from a workspace to another; how can I obtain it in xubuntu too?
I tried setting this operation is command in an active corner but nothing happened.
Thanks!
