I have used macos X for some time now and resently switched my main console back to linux.
No problem so far because most of the tools ive used in macos X where unix tools i knew from conding on linux - the only thing I realy missed was exposeè.
For this reason I gave compiz a try now
Installation was realy simple on my gentoo box all I had to do was emerge compiz and reemerge kde with the useflag "xcomposite" acvite
then add a
Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Enable" EndSection
at the end of xorg.conf and add
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
to the "Device" Section. This option is very important, because wihout it the kde-window-decorator doesnt draw any window headers.
after restarting X11 compiz can be started with
in a shell. To let it start automatically i have put a little shellscript in my
.kde/Autostart folder. I also have deactivated the wobbly plugin. This is realy funny in the beginning but start
getting REALY annoing very fast :-)
Compiz can be downloaded on their website (http://www.go-compiz.org). They also have some very nice tutorials showing how to install it on various systems
