Compiz-fusion on Fedora

1. Install relevant packages

#yum install ccsm emerald-themes compizconfig-backend-gconf fusion-icon-gtk 
emerald compiz-fusion compiz-fusion-gnome libcompizconfig compiz-gnome  
compiz-bcop compiz compizconfig-python compiz-fusion-extras 

2. Start compiz-fusion by using command “fusion-icon”.

It can be found in “Applications -> system tools -> fusion-icon”. It will be more convenient if “fusion-icon” is added to autostart list by adding a entry in “System -> Preferences -> Start Application”.

3. Configure compiz-fusion by using “ccsm”.

It can also be found in “System -> Preferences -> CompizConfig Settings Manager”

Then enjoy it :)

This is tested on Fedora 11 and Fedora 12.
