Hi all, I finally got around to producing an 0.8.10 release. Here are the
details, which are also posted on my blog <http://blog.northfield.ws>.
It took a bit of setup and cook time but compiz 0.8.10 tarballs are ready
now including addons-experimental plugin package. Anyone who has installed
compiz before knows it can be confusing so here, I will focus on installing
0.8.10 using the tarballs
Step 1) – Install Xubuntu 14.10 or your variant of *buntu based Linux
distribution with sudo installed.
Step 2) – Open a terminal
Step 3) – Install git
$ sudo apt-get install git
Step 4) – Download the build scripts with
$ git clone git://northfield.ws/compiz/scripts -b release-0.8.10
Step 5) – Run the INSTALL script
Step 6) – Start ccsm by typing ccsm in the terminal and verify it runs
Step 7) – Enable basic plugins such as Window Decoration, Move Window,
Place Window, Resize Window and maybe Wobbly so you know it’s working
Step 8) – Start compiz with
$ compiz –replace ccp
Step 9) – Open another terminal
Step 10) – Start a compiz window decorator
$ emerald –replace
If everything is working, then congratulations! You can add ‘emerald’
(without quotes) to ccsm>Effects>Window Decoration>Command field so emerald
starts when compiz does. If not, you can ask in #compiz or #northfield on
irc.freenode.net using your IRC client. Enjoy!
