XGL / Compiz & KDE

Posted 09-16-2006 at 08:03 AM by carl0ski

XGL may be blasted as eye candy , that may be true but it is also very productive.
The eye candy is in reality a side effect of the highly responsive nature of hardware drawn dektops
Windows move and scroll real time, Pages of text scroll by smoothly and dont grind down your machine.


The Novell guide went off without a hitch
http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/feature/17174.html

However some available option are out of date since it is fairly old
the gentoo one has a more detailed & upto date list.
http://gentoo-wiki.com/Compiz


my
~/.kde/Autostart/compiz.desktop
<code>[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Exec=compiz --replace miniwin decoration transset wobbly fade minimize cube rotate zoom scale move neg resize place switcher trailfocus water & gnome-window-decorator &
GenericName[en_US]=
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
TerminalOptions=
Type=Application
X-KDE-autostart-after=kdesktop</code>



The top and bottom images are stored here
/usr/share/compiz/


My only grevance is the top and bottom bases have no productive purpose.
