    Great howto. It worked for me. I've been using Beryl for a while but Compiz Fusion in great.

    Submitted to fsdaily.com - a digg style news site for free software news and articles.

    Many thanks of linking, however you pointed to my repository List that is really more complete (and unstable :P) than the <a href="http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/blog/informatica/linux/compiz-fusion-git-ubuntu-repository/" rel="nofollow">compiz fusion repository</a> :P.

    While this is te <a href="http://3v1n0.tuxfamily.org/dists/feisty/eyecandy" rel="nofollow">real repository page</a>.

    I hope you could fix the link, just to avoid confusion!

    you shouldn't sudo gedit, either sudo vi or gksudo gedit

    Ok, well, I followed these instructions for my working ubuntu 64 install and I am having some issues.

    Everything installed properly, but when I load up the Compiz preferences screen and try to select any check box it hangs my system and I have to do a hard reboot. The windows wobble and whatnot, but when I try to select any check box it hangs.

    My system works fine otherwise, desktop effects/beryl worked fine too. Any ideas?

    <strong>Cómo instalar a Compiz Fusion en Ubuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn...</strong>

    Si tienes la última versión de Ubuntu (7.04 o "Feisty Fawn"), y ya tienes habilitado los "Efectos de Escritorio", pero eres un "power user" y estás listo para ir al próximo nivel e instalar a Compiz Fusion antes que este salga en la próxima ...

    I tried this and settings manager appears under my system&gt;administration menu but when I type 'compiz –replace -c emerald &amp;' nothing happens. No error, nothing. Same with 'compiz –replace -c emerald &amp;'

    Any suggestions?

    i get gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

    i think im entering it in right gpg –keyserver subkeys.pgp.net –recv-keys 81836EBFgpg –export –armor 81836EBF | sudo apt-key add -



  13. draeath (guest)

    # Posted on 18 July 2007 at 06:57 PM

    The gpg command is wrong.

    The correct lines that should be used:

    gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 81836EBF gpg --export --armor 81836EBF | sudo apt-key add - gpg --delete-key 81836EBF

    This will put the key on your keyring, export it and add to apt-key, and then remove it from your keyring (with prompting) so that it doesn't unnecessarily clutter your keyring.

    Note the replacement of '--' for '–'



  14. draeath (guest)

    # Posted on 18 July 2007 at 06:58 PM

    OK, your blog backend here is lame. Replace '–' with two '-' keys.

    "compiz --replace -c emerald &amp;" only seems to work if I switch it around: "compiz -c emerald --replace &amp;" keep in mind that is "dash dash replace"

    Just a question. What key is super?



  19. Peter (guest)

    # Posted on 05 August 2007 at 01:26 PM

    The Super key is usually the key with the Windows logo on it on PC keyboards.



  20. Steve (guest)

    # Posted on 05 August 2007 at 11:30 PM

    subkeys.pgp.net appears to be down. Is there a way around the key shit?

    I installed Compiz Fusion successfully on my Kubuntu 7.04 installation. Thing is, I can't view videos properly when I'm using either Compiz or Beryl. I can view videos in their 'default' size, but if I try to resize the window, or view it in full screen mode, the app crashes (irrespective of which multimedia app I use). Any ideas?



  22. Isaac (guest)

    # Posted on 12 August 2007 at 02:20 PM

    @peter, so its the key that if you press it opens start on windows. But since your using alinux there is no start so its the super key.

    everything went fine till i got 2 the two commands (compiz --replace) &amp; (compiz --replace -c emerald &amp;) for some reason its just gives me the "cannot run command" msg..

    I also tried what Jeremy wrote:

    only seems to work if I switch it around: “compiz -c emerald –replace &amp;” keep in mind that is “dash dash replace

    Any Advice is greatly appreciated~

    I'm currently running kubuntu 7.04 (feisty) (nvidia) 915resolution 1280x800
