Compositing on Ubuntu 8.10

Ubuntu with AWN without COMPIZ ???

 

Yes, u can use AWN without enabling your compiz. In the latest builds of ubuntu, u can adjust compositing setting.

 

How ?

 

First, u need to install gconf-editor. and offcourse metacity (installed by default on ubuntu)…. 😀

 

u can install gconf editor using the following command on your terminal.

 

# sudo apt-get install gconf-editor

 

After installing, open the run menu (Alt+F2) and type gconf-editor.

 

look in apps/metacity/general

 

and check for the compositing_manager then Close.

 

::Extra::

 

for the AWN, I suggest u to use the Intrepid repository and enable the universe. or u can use the PPA Launchpad repo.

 

u can install it using this following command on terminal.

 

# sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator awn-manager awn-applets-c-core awn-applets-c-extrasawn-applets-python-core awn-applets-python-extras
