[Bug 858845] Re: Screen edge actions set in CCSM (scale/expo) don't work (sometimes) - plugin load-order causes the shortcut loss


Updated description.

For most with 12.10, the correct key is located at:

For at least one the key is at:

** Description changed:

  If the unityshell plugin is loaded after compiz plugins like scale or expo, those plugins will lose their "active corner" settings. The settings are still set but don't have any effect. Keyboad shortcuts are not affected.
  This looks like a problem in the unityshell plugin.
  Re-order the list of plugins to move expo and scale (or whatever else you use) behind unityshell.
  In 12.04 the list of plugins is found in this gconf key
  In 12.10 it is this dconf key
- /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins-with-set-keys
+ /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/core/active-plugins
+ ( for some with 12.10 it may be at /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins-with-set-keys )
  old description
  I have set expo edge to bottom right. After reboot, often this setting does not seem to work. To re-enable expo edge, I have to clear it in compizconfig settings manager and re-set it to bottom right.
