Description Bastien Nocera 2006-07-26 13:39:39 EDT

To start compiz you need to:
- run gnome-window-decorator
- run "compiz --replace gconf"

It should be enough to run "compiz --replace" to replace your current window manager

Moving all the compiz bugs to rawhide
Comment 2 Kristian Høgsberg 2006-08-23 11:38:38 EDT
We now have the Desktop Effects dialog to switch between compiz and metacity. 
Go to System->Preferences->More Preferences and select "Desktop Effects".  Click
the big button to make compiz your default WM.
