Get rid of `desktop-effects', or tobe able to change settings
 
I mean, to make compiz behave as per my configurations, is the only way modify and create all gconf keys? There is any way to make the so-calld CompizConfig configuration manager ccsm superseed /apps/compiz gconf entries?

I'm quite new to Fedora (i'm using k '2.6.32.11-99.fc12.i686.PAE #1 SMP Mon Apr 5 16:15:03 EDT 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux') 12, not too much to linux, and i'll appreciate a birdeye view on yum/rpm and fedora's way in arrangin things:

Code:

# rpm -q desktop-effects compiz-gnome  compiz-backend --whatrequires
compiz-gnome-0.8.2-24.fc12.i686
gnome-shell-2.28.0-3.166.20100413git98a093a2.fc12.i686
compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.8.2-3.fc12.i686
nessun pacchetto necessita di compiz-backend

but i loose compiz-gtk and gtk-window-decorator and some libraries

# rpm -q compiz-gnome --filesbypkg

Can i use `compiz --replace'?

Thanks.

I have used fedora 12 in the past with fusion-icon+compiz+emerald. I had no issues using those apps together. I did, however, install via YUM. So, I would like to help you out; however, if your against using yum i wouldnt be able to. I just have not used rpm enough. You willing to try installing the packages from rpmfusion via yum? if so, try :
Code:

su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm;yum remove compiz'
then allow the install to rebuild your conf file with by clearing the old one out:(run this as user not root)
Code:

rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/compiz
then get all the new compiz stuff:
Code:

su -c 'yum install compiz-fusion compiz-fusion-gnome compiz-fusion-extras compiz-fusion-extras-gnome compiz-manager gnome-compiz-manager ccsm fusion-icon fusion-icon-gtk emerald emerald-themes'
I did it this way on 4-5 fedora installs with no issues. If you would like to see what i used as refs check out fedoraunity.org ( great howto for fedora by the way)
