Compiz Fusion

Compiz fusion

This is a demonstration of the Git version of Compiz Fusion (formerly known as compcomm), which is the remerge of beryl and compiz, and some of its interesting features.
There are some screenshots at and .
Check out for more information!
You can find a low quality version here:

Someone asked me about my system specs: My computer is running an AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700+ (although I'm using 32-bit ubuntu since it's easier), motherboard is an ASUS A8N-SLI Premium, Graphics: 256MG nVidia GeForce 7600GT. All parts ordered on
These parts were not that expensive, and they run Compiz Fusion (new name of compcomm) VERY well.
And, since people are asking, I chose to film with a camera since I couldn't install the screencast plugin (I get compile errors).. can someone tell me the dependencies for it?
And i used iMovie to make the video, I guess I could have used Kino, but I wasn't sure if it was up to it.
I'm using grey-neu, an emerald theme I designed, , and "glossy" in ubuntu, just customized to dark colors.
However, since this video I have found a better theme called Neutronium Unity which includes instructions for workarounds to bugs you get with dark themes.
