Hi,

My ubuntu gnome machine has a fancy alt-tab menu that shows the contents of the window I'm switching to. It also has transparent windows when I resize and a couple other whiz-bang gui eye candies.

What package do I install on Gentoo to get these effects?

Thank you,

Chris

PS: I'm running amd64 with nvidia drivers and I've got direct rendering: yes in glxinfo.

Thanks. I notice on my system, compiz-fusion is masked.

Question: Where can I go to see the reasons this package (or any other package) is masked?

Thanks,

Chris

Instead of installing compiz-fusion which is masked, I performed these steps:

1. Executed this:
Code:
gconftool-2 -s  --type bool  /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager  true


2. Appended this to the end of xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "enable"
EndSection

Packages which are masked due to keyword restrictions do not necessarily list an explicit reason, due to the nature of such masking, unstable typically being candidates for stable release. Packages which have been explicitly masked should have the reasons given by the masking party given in the output of emerge.
