Compiz is one of the first compositing window managers for the X Window System that uses 3D graphics hardware to create fast compositing desktop effects for window management. The effects, such as a minimization effect and a cube workspace are implemented as loadable plugins. Because it conforms to the Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual standard, Compiz can substitute for the default Metacity in GNOME or KWin in KDE.

 

The compiz-fusion packages found in Fedora 12 repositories are a few versions back but they’ll do their work.  To install them type:

 

For a Gnome compiz install

#yum install ccsm emerald-themes compizconfig-backend-gconf fusion-icon-gtk 
emerald compiz-fusion compiz-fusion-gnome libcompizconfig compiz-gnome
compiz-bcop compiz compizconfig-python compiz-fusion-extras
compiz-fusion-extras-gnome

For a KDE compiz install

#yum install ccsm emerald-themes compizconfig-backend-kconfig fusion-icon-qt
