16.4. Compiz-Fusion

The Compiz Fusion Project brings 3D desktop visual effects that improve usability of the X Window System and provide increased productivity though plugins and themes contributed by the community giving a rich desktop experience.


There may be problems with running Compiz Fusion if you do not have a 3D-capable video card.
The Fedora Project does not enable Compiz Fusion by default and therefore, if you want to use it, you will need to install it first. Refer to Chapter 17, Managing software for instructions on managing software. You will need the compiz-gnome or compiz-kde depending on which desktop you use.
When you have installed Compiz Fusion , you can launch the program by selecting System > Preferences > Look and Feel > Desktop Effects in GNOME or Kickoff Application Launcher > Applications > Settings > Compiz Switcher in KDE.
