Compiz Fusion

Using as the Gnome Window Manager

The first thing we need is a desktop file:

cat > /usr/share/applications/compiz.desktop << "EOF"
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Compiz
Exec=compiz ccp
NoDisplay=true
# name of loadable control center module
X-GNOME-WMSettingsModule=compiz
# name we put on the WM spec check window
X-GNOME-WMName=Compiz
# back compat only 
X-GnomeWMSettingsLibrary=compiz
X-GNOME-Autostart-Phase=WindowManager
X-GNOME-Provides=windowmanager
X-GNOME-Autostart-Notify=true

[Window Manager]
SessionManaged=false
EOF

You can view your current window manager setting with the following command:

gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager

Then update the window manager GConf key with the following command:

gconftool-2 --type=string --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager compiz
