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 let me know. 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.

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:

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


Install compiz fusion by using the following commands:

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