I finally upgraded from Fedora 15 to 17, quite happy I might say but there are a couple of things I am missing from my F15 installation.

The first one is gnome-shell-mousewheel-zoom a Compiz-like tool I followed this tutorial which worked in F15 but now I get this error

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/mousewheelzoom.py", line 96, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/bin/mousewheelzoom.py", line 67, in main
    z = Zoomer()
  File "/usr/bin/mousewheelzoom.py", line 22, in __init__
    self._refreshDBUS()
  File "/usr/bin/mousewheelzoom.py", line 31, in _refreshDBUS

    message, timeout)
dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No existe la interfaz «(null)» en el objeto en la ruta /org/gnome/Magnifier

Has anyone been able to have this function running in F17?

And the other one is Gnome-Pie a circular application launcher; I had solved this with a help of a friend but for F15 but it seems not to be working in F17; if I try the same steps for its compillation in F17 I get these errors:

If anyone has solved these issues or could point me into the right direction I'd apprecaite it enormously.

Compiz is no longer supported in Fedora 17, but you can try MATE and install again Compiz and to use gnome-shell-mousewheel-zoom:

Use this guide at your own risk.

INSTALL MATE

yum -y localinstall https://dl.dropbox.com/u/49862637/Mate-desktop/fedora_17/mate-desktop-fedora-updates/noarch/mate-desktop-release-17-2.fc17.noarch.rpm



yum -y groupinstall MATE-Desktop

INSTALLATION COMPIZ

yum install –enablerepo=mate-desktop-fedora-new-application-testing compiz compiz-mate fusion-icon-gtk compiz-plugins-main compiz-plugins-extra compiz-plugins-extra-mate compiz-plugins-main-mate compiz-plugins-unsupported compiz-plugins-unsupported-mate

If the guide is risky, why even suggest it @davidva? If they break stuff, they'll come back here saying "I tried this, and now my system's broken".
