I’ve had Compiz on my desktop for almost a week.
At first I found it a bit overwhelming, trying to keep up with all the different cool things I can do now, and then I found a couple of
cheat sheets quick reference guides here and here. Looking through the photos on flickr I’m getting excited to play around with it this weekend.
I think it would have been less confusing if I’d realized sooner that the Compiz Fusion Icon needs to be running in order for some of the features to work. Not all, just some. For example, ctrl+alt+R or L arrow will rotate the desktop cube whether the icon is running or not but the mousewheel only works if it’s on. Wobbly windows also only works with it on.
