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.
