Today, I’ve upgrade my Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick to Ubuntu 11.04 Natty. Usually I installed new Ubuntu version with “fresh” method, but now because of a lack of disk space, i have upgrade directly from 10.10 -> 11.04 using “update-manager -d” :p

First impression, wow, fast and it have unity as default desktop interface but it seems odd for me :p. Annnddd…where is my EMERALD??!! it’s gone away!!

When I try "emerald --replace" it said -> segmentation fault -__-”

So here is my way to fix this issue:

  1. Remove emerald completely
  2. sudo apt-get purge emerald

  3. Install some deps packages
  4. sudo apt-get install git autoconf libtool libwnck1.0-cil-dev libwnck-dev intltool libdecoration0-dev libemeraldengine0

  5. Fetch emerald via GIT
  6. git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/fusion/decorators/emerald

  7. Compile and install it!
  8. cd emerald
    git checkout -b compiz++ origin/compiz++
    ./configure --prefix=/usr/local
    sudo make install

  9. Test and enjoy it 😉
