Description Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail 2007-07-09 04:42:32 UTC
I have packaged compiz 0.5.1 , but I want to get more opinion about
desktop-effects menu.

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
original desktop-effects. 


The python implementation of desktop-effects is available here.

Py Desktop Effects: 

additional dependencies for the python desktop effects

Comment 1 Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail 2007-07-20 14:50:44 UTC
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.
