Metisse

Postby Alephcat on Fri May 25, 2007 4:58 am

if we are going down the road of having Beryl/Compiz installed by default could we think about having Metisse installed aswell. It is not as eyecandyish as the other 2, but it does seem to have lower overheads and do things aimed slightly more at productivity than either of the others.

It's too late for Cassandra at this stage but we can think of how to add this to mintInstall for instance so it makes it easy for people to install.

I actually have not been able to figure out how beryl makes your desktop more usable. It is pretty, but does it do anything else? The 3d cube is just a pretty version of the ages old 4 desktop setup. Metisse's ability to make windows look 3d, increasing desktop space, but maintaining usability, well, it actually has a purpose other than to be pretty.

Is it possible to do this in beryl?

Well Beryl is pure eyecandy... and for grinning maniacally at Windows boxes struggling with Aero... but now that's just me :twisted:
Now, if you want useful, that's another kettle of fish. :P
I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem.

I agree that Beryl is mostly eye-candy but there are some features that I find useful, especially when working with several Widows.

- Window preview
- Opacify
- Shaded Window ( Ctrl + Alt + s)

I second that :twisted:
