Compiz Config Settings Manager in Fedora 8

25 Jan 2008

I have used Fedora 8 now since last year, and i want my look and feel like Mac Leopard, just like my GM, Mr Tjatur.

So..herethestepbystep.

First, install compiz fusion as follows:

ForGNOMEuser:

#yum install compiz compiz-gnome compiz-bcop compiz-fusion compiz-fusion compiz-fusion-extras compiz-fusion-extras-gnome compiz compizconfig-python libcompizconfig libcompizconfig-devel gnome-compiz-manager

Or, if you are running KDE:

#yum install compiz compiz-kde compiz-bcop compiz-fusion compiz-fusion compiz-fusion-extras compiz-fusion-extras-gnome compiz compizconfig-python libcompizconfig libcompizconfig-devel gnome-compiz-manager kicker-compiz

That will install compiz fusion, and all of the extras that go with it. Next, we need to get some files. First, we will get CCSM from Koji, the server for Fedora Development. Then we’ll install the backends so that they work. Run the following:

# rpm -Uvh http://koji.fedoraproject.org/packages/ccsm/0.6.0/3.fc8/noarch/ccsm-0.6.0-3.fc8.noarch.rpm

or you can just write this command :

# yum install ccsm

For GNOME:

# rpm -Uvh http://koji.fedoraproject.org/packages/compizconfig-backend-gconf/0.6.0/2.fc8/i386/compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.6.0-2.fc8.i386.rpm

And for KDE:

# rpm -Uvh http://koji.fedoraproject.org/packages/compizconfig-backend-kconfig/0.6.0/1.fc8/i386/compizconfig-backend-kconfig-0.6.0-1.fc8.i386.rpm

And that should do it.

To start running your compiz, just call this command in your startup :

$compiz-manager
