I followed the instructions for this page: link text

And apply this command on a terminal. Because a i have Fedora GNOME.

su- yum install -y 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

But this is what i get:

*[root@fedora-pc Ramone]# yum install -y 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

Error: Nada para hacer
[root@fedora-pc Ramone]#*

The translation is no packages available and Error: nothing to do.

My laptop system details are:

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) X2 Dual Core QL-62 x 2 Graphics: Gallium 0.4 on AMD RS780 O.S: 32bit

Actually my graphic card is an ATI Radeon 3100series. So i think i can use compiz. Please help me install it.

it isn't included with Fedora any more..

You need disable all afects, you would try MATE and Install Compiz

Installation MATE

yum -y install http://dl.dropbox.com/u/49862637/Mate-desktop/fedora_17/mate-desktop-fedora/noarch/mate-desktop-release-17-1.fc17.noarch.rpm

yum -y groupinstall MATE-Desktop

you need to compile COMPIZ

tools

yum -y groupinstall "Development Tools"

yum -y groupinstall "Development Libraries"

Just an update. Compiz was missing from Fedora 17, but now it's in the testing repos for Fedora 18, so you can install it with:

yum install compiz --enablerepo=updates-testing

Probably you also need some more plugins for it, see what are available with

yum search compiz --enablerepo=updates-testing
