    Here is a neat screenshot I took of xcompmgr and transset running in Xgl:

    Is that the Nautilus file browser?

    how'd you get xgl to compile? I've had zero luck with this.

    poofyhairguy very cool, but what is xgl really? is it some hack to xorg or is it standalone?

    Its the repo Xgl. I installed Dapper to mix it with the recently released glxcompmgr (which I got to compile but so far I can't control).

    I'm going to wait till the newest code hits the cvs before I try to compile it again. Apparently it needs some immediate work.

    that was really interesting to read but I'll wait for a while more, maybe I try this when dapper becomes official, I got everything workin in breezy and I also got the memory leak to a minimum, I don't actully know if it was because of one small stuff I got from a novell linux dev but it seems to help

    sudo chown <user> /usr/local/bin/xcompmgr

    or maybe

    sudo chown <user> /usr/bin/xcompmgr

    for some

    replace user with your own username

    Since that I have run xcompmgr about 2 days before it shuts off and computer gets slow as hell but then in a few minutes I start xcompmgr again and all is good.

    I showed this to my friend today and he is now the proud owner of a new Ubuntu PC. I feel so happy

    One problem though is that sometimes when I maximise windows, they overlap the top and bottom dock-bar-things (looks like fullscreen but still a window). Anyone know what to do?

    it easily have that effect, one of my friends instantly said, "I WANT THAT" and even if I tried to explain all about not stable yet etc etc and also I know he has alot of other needs but now he has ubuntu and so far I have managed to help out with all of his comp. needs as eg. remote music server from an old DELLLLL laptop with vnc, video editing, music editing, tv-out on the remote comp. etc.
    I told him to shutdown xcompmgr when using kino since then it crashes easily.
