    I don't think xfce is the right desktop environment for compiz (eyecandy) Most people who choose xfce likes the simplicity of xfce. For eyecandy, you have to look for another environment, like KDE.

    My opinion is, and it will always be, don't mess xfce with all those eyecandy-things. You'll have to choose another environment if you want eyecandy.

    That's sort of a purist attitude. Every other version of XFCE has worked beautifully with compiz. 12.04 should be no exception. The person to ask is Toz. You could also search for 11.04 11.10 Xubuntu and Copmiz; but I think Toz is your man.

    Honestly, xfce's native compositor is pretty nice--improves workflow and easy on the resources--but compiz adds a certain wow factor that some folks want. If you have the overhead and time to debug a few things, why not?
