Introduction

Compiz Fusion is a window and composition manager. It is the merger of Compiz and Beryl. Compiz Fusion is currently unsupported or in development (git) packages. I have created this page to get a howto started for arch. I am not sure if there is already one or not. If there is, please delete this one. If not, please feel free to edit this one to help others out getting Compiz Fusion installed on the various desktop environment. I am looking to get it installed on gnome. The Compiz Fusion Homepage is a good source of information. NOTE that there is currently no stable version yet.


Installing Compiz Fusion

Stable version

Coming Soon

Development (git) version

If you want to try the latest compiz fusion development version, edit /etc/pacman.conf and add one of the following to the end of the file:

i686

[compiz-fusion]
Server = http://arch.nesl247.org/compiz-fusion/i686

x86_64

[compiz-fusion]
Server = http://arch.nesl247.org/compiz-fusion/x86_64

Pre-Installation

Before you can install compiz fusion, you need to uninstall compiz or beryl. For me it was beryl:

$ su
# pacman -Rc beryl-core

For compiz, I believe it is:

$ su
# pacman -Rc compiz-core

Installation

Install compiz fusion by using the following commands:

$ su
# pacman -Sy compiz-fusion compiz-fusion-extra

I am not sure if this is required, but I wanted to have the compiz-manager. So, I had to build compiz-icon-git from AUR:

$ cd /tmp
$ wget http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/compiz-icon-git/compiz-icon-git.tar.gz
$ tar -zxvf compiz-icon-git.tar.gz
$ cd compiz-icon-git
$ su
# makepkg
# pacman -A compiz-icon-git-$pkgver-$pkgrel-$arch.pkg.tar.gz #based on the aur package.
