I’ve switched to Gnome from Gnome classic and want to know, will Compiz work in Gnome, ie, the fancy graphics such as the cube with all my open programs shown on it?5

AFAIK, Compiz doesn’t play nicely with Gnome shell … but Google suggests it can work with MATE:

But it does work with Unity?

I think so … but don’t quote me on that :wink:

IIRC, there was a Unity specific section added to the compiz config settings manager (CCSM)

That’s a bit of a bummer then, if it only works with Unity. I don’t really much like the Unity desktop due to the Icon sidebar (don’t care for it much in Gnome either).
I’d like to be able to use the graphics tweaks.

Try MATE then :wink:
