[RFE] Compiz 0.5.1 and a rewrite of DesktopEffects to make use of compizconfig-python
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
I have packaged compiz 0.5.1 , but I want to get more opinion about
the latest compiz now have a different configuration manager/plugin called
compizconfig which is provided by libcompizconfig. Previous compiz uses
glib/gconf by default. libcompizconfig usage, obsoletes the current
desktop-effects implementation. I have wrote a new desktop-effects so that it
will make use of compizconfig-python bindings for enabling/disabling plugins and
I want some opinion about this from more experienced packager.
The srpm for compiz 0.5.1 is here. the desktop-effects in this srpm is still the
The python implementation of desktop-effects is available here.
Py Desktop Effects:
additional dependencies for the python desktop effects
I have updated compiz 0.5.1 package
* all of previous compiz 0.3.6 patches are now merges into the code
* pydesktop-effects is used by default, replacing desktop-effects
for pydesktop-effects, I've uploaded it into a svn repo,
I would really like some comments whether it is better to replace with
pydesktop-effects or find a way to make desktop-effects uses libcompizconfig.so
.. if the latter is chosen, someone can provide patches?
I've updated compiz to 0.5.2 now. We're going to stay with desktop-effects for
now, but longer term we might move it into the gnome-appearance-properties dialog.
