I should mention though these packages are not as stable as the 0.8.6 release of compiz. 0.9 is a new version ported to C++ and is not considered stable, although the main developer has called it "stable for everyday use". I am running it on a test partition of 13.1 (32bit) and I would say thus far that it is as stable but not more stable then older version. However it is NOT STABLE for me on current, I haven't figured it out yet since i'm content right now using stable. This project recently got a new life when it was picked up as gnomes compositing window manager for there new unity desktop, however there also maintaining KDE support and some cool compatibility options like the blur plugin have been implemented.
Here are Slackbuilds if interested.
get the source files here http://releases.compiz-fusion.org/0.9.2.1/
README: (Seriously Please
First thing you need to do is get the dependencies, and they are cython and protobuf. Get them at slackbuilds.org. After you install those packages you need to completely remove compiz-0.8.6 and (if installed),
After you remove those packages you then need to delete your ~/.config/compiz file. Now you are ready to install the new 0.9.2.1 version of compiz packages. Using the above builds, build and install in this order
plugins-main, plugins-extra, plugins-unsupported
Once those are installed you need to launch ccsm BEFORE you launch compiz. Open ccsm and enable move,resize window,window decoration,opengl,composite. Now you can launch compiz for the command line using
compiz --replace ccp &
If all went well you should now having compiz running. however you will not have window decorations yet. To enable that you have run "kde4-window-decorator --replace &" from a terminal or run box (or gtk-window-decorator for gnome). You should now having a running compiz-0.9.2 install. Now relaunch ccsm and customize to you liking.
If you are using QtCurve you for window themes then you should know that if you make your windows transparent with compiz enabled then the windows will have problems placing themselves, this is because qtcurve calls for the windows to be drawn way offscreen to allow themselves to "recaptured" by the window manager and placed correctly. However with compiz enabled this "kwin workaround" wont work. I have a patch for this that fixes 90% of all those problems if any one needs it.
Emerald no longer works with the new branch of compiz, however there is a project over at http://kde-look.org/content/show.php...content=125162
that allows .emerald theme files to be drawn using the native KDE window decorator.
Fusion-Icon has also not been ported thus far. I'm sure this will change though since its a hugely popular add-on.
