Patching Question

If your Xorg is properly configured to run translucency, xcompmgr can be installed by common "./configure; make; make install"
To apply the kwin patches, get a clean copy of kwin, decompresss kwinxcompmgr.diff.bz2 into the kwin folder
bunzip2 kwinxcompmgr.diff.bz2
and apply the patch.
patch -p1 < kwinxcompmgr.diff

You may want to first try if the patch applies correctly, try
patch --dry-run -p1 < kwinxcompmgr.diff
Also you should create backup files, if you really want to get rid of the patch
patch -b -p1 < kwinxcompmgr.diff
This was taken right off of the Baghira Translucency page. Where am I suppose to apply this patch?

In the directory where you put the kwin source code, I would assume. It sounds like you need to download a copy of the kwin source code, apply the patch in that directory as per the instructions, and then compile the patched kwin source.
