Xcompmgr is a Desktop/window compositor for linux/BSD. It is a good altenative to compiz for those who have had no luck with
compiz or suffer from a chronic broken desktop.

Install it:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install xcompmgr


Once installed run it by the command:
Code: Select all
xcompmgr -c &

<BREW> Much nicer than the standard "Metacity" Compost-er !!! ;) I have it on my old work X600 lappy ! does'nt run any faster, but has a great functionality ! Along with Brightside ! :ugeek:
Brightside provides "edge flipping" to allow you to switch to the adjacent
workspace simply by pressing your mouse against the edge of the screen.

Brightside also allows you to assign configurable actions to occur while
you rest the mouse in a corner of the screen. Currently available actions
comprise:

* Fade out volume
* Prevent screensaver starting
* Start screensaver and lock screen
* Enter DPMS standby mode
* Enter DPMS suspend mode
* Enter DPMS off mode
* Dim laptop backlight
* Custom action

Both compiz and metacity are headed the 'POOF!' way, although still being maintained.

Na I dont think so, ( Maybe as we know it today ) Ubuntu will Revamp compiz, IMHO Compiz is the only thing that Ubuntu has, to make it stand out ! Cuz it sure aint pretty !! and after all it gives them something else to continually screw with !!! Like (And mark my words ) incorporating compiz in to system settings ! no more CCSM ! :ugeek:
