Compiz rocks

Postby NiksaVel on Tue Apr 24, 2007 10:28 am

Hey... just wanted to let you all know that I have installed Compiz for the first time and I have so far not had a single problem...

Beryl on the other hand had all kind of funky behavious... from messing up my suspend/hybernate to periodic total freezes at heavier system load... it drove me crazy..


So far no problems with compiz... seems pretty much the same thing with a bit less stuff... but I'm using the default installation and settings..


As of now I am recommending Compiz to everyone.
Wonder what will have after the reunion...
Windows is extremely fast after a fresh install. If you want to make it stay that way: - don't use it.

On my system it's the other way round: compiz gives me completely black or completely white screens ... And the current release of Beryl I am using (version 2.5, snapshot r4338) works perfectly :wink:

Make sure you've got the Compiz "Extra" package. This adds numerous configuration options to the compiz-tray-icon applet.

When Cassandra comes out, there'll be Compiz 0.3.6 and Beryl 0.2.1 in the Feisty repositories, as well as nVidia driver v9631.
