Eye Candy?

I remember seeing a thing showing the new eye candy for FC5 and it looked like a cross between OSX and Luminocity. I have not been able to find these graphics settings though. I think it was AIGLX or something similar. I installed it following the directions, I did the login settings things, and it hasn't changed. Any help would be appreciated.

Are you referring to the Gnome desktop? Head to or0 and download some new icon themes and GTK themes. If you're using KDE you'll find what you want at

I'm using gnome. I don't mean just icons, I meant cool minimizing effects and that type of stuff. Like wobbly windows, that is what I though AIGLX was.

I did that, I followed the directions, and installed. There were no errors but it won't work at all. Is there a settings tab I don't see?
