If you don't have the default packages installed, I don't know if it will work for you.
Make sure that you have it set up for Beryl or Compiz for you system.(drivers, xorg, etc)
This is the easiest way to install Compiz Fusion.
Use this link to install with mintInstall.
If you can't use rapidshare use this link:
Installing will take a while so be patient.
Watch the Progress section for any errors that might show up.
Errors may happen if you have changed any of the default compiz packages and can't upgrade these.
Now to start Compiz Fusion:
Open Berly Manager and change any settings you normally have to change to run Compiz
In XFCE make sure the Fall-back Window Manager is xfwm4 and change it to this if you disable Compiz Fusion.
Now select Compiz as your Window Manager.
To change any Compiz Fusion Settings use CompizConfig Settings Manager.
If it doesn't change use Beryl Manager to Reload Window Manager.
How to use both the Rotating Cube plugin and the Desktop Wall plugin.( is a little buggy with both running but runs fine for me)
Open and enable Rotate Cube.
Let it enable Cube plugin and disable Dektop Wall plugin.
Now close out CompizConfig Settings Manager and open your home directory.
Make sure to have Show Hidden Files enabled and goto .the .compizconfig folder.
Open Default.ini with your text editor and change this line.
Code: Select all
[wall] as_____plugin_enabled = false
Code: Select all
[wall] as_____plugin_enabled = true
Now use Beryl Manager to reload the Window Manager.
Both should be working.
To get Emerald working you need to upgrade to the latest one.
If you upgrade Emerald will not work with the default Beryl so upgrade it 1st.
After Emerald is upgraded open Beryl Manger.
Change the Window Decorator to Standard Beryl and then Reload the Window Decorator.
You will have to Reload the Window Decorator every time you start Compiz Fusion with Beryl Manager.
