Sorry to say it, but X.org eye candy is about to eclipse Mac OSX. Check out this video to see what I mean:
To get this for yourself on Debian, these are the steps I had to take.
- apt-get install libcairo2 librsvg2-2 libglitz1 libglitz-glx1 compiz compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-gnome compiz-plugins
- Modify your X.org conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
- Add the following to the “Device” section:
Option “AllowGLXWithComposite” “true” Option “XAANoOffscreenPixmaps” “true” #NVidia cards only
Add the following to the “Screen” section:
Option “AddARGBGLXVisuals” “true” # NVidia cards only
Add the new section:
Section “Extensions” Option “Composite” “Enable” EndSection
- Enable all the cool features of compiz:
gconftool --set /apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/active_plugin --type list --list-type string ‘[gconf,png,svg,decoration,wobbly,fade,minimize,cube,rotate,zoom,scale,move,place,switcher,screenshot,resize]‘
- echo “export WINDOW_MANAGER=/usr/bin/compiz” >> ~/.gnomerc
- Restart Xorg
If you’re having problems, you can try to download:
And run compiz-check to see if there are any issues with your setup/hardware.
To get the features of OSX’s Docker, you’re going to want to install Cairo-Docker. Cairo-Docker is actually even MORE incredible than the traditional Docker, allowing for plugins and customization to the Nth degree.
