    Unfortunately, one of the many, many shortcomings of Metacity is that, well, basically, you can't. You either have to use the reduced-resources mode thing that you mentioned, or get rid of metacity altogether. You may want to look at this guide to using enlightenment instead of metacity. I have not tested it lately, so I don't know how well it works... Here is the guide:

    Or you can look at using kwin instead of metacity:

    Ok, fine, I promise I'll post the deps later. Sorry I didn't do it earlier.
    If you go that far, please take it all into a new guide.

    Add to the series.

    Thanks for the Luminocity guide, I'll give it a try later.

    And in a few hours, you can expect to see a guide on getting Xgl set up in Breezy. I still don't have hw acceleration working, i dont think, and I need to iron out a couple of problems I was having yesterday first. And I only get home in about 4 hours.

    Re: The Composite Manager Guide: How to Get Vista-ish Effects in (K)(X)Ubuntu.

    I have a question: Is it possible to have transparent menus (e.g. the "Applications" menu) in GNOME?
    In KDE I can.

    It's the only thing I miss from KDE.


    Thanks in advance

    P.S. This is a wonderful guide

    Thanks. That means a lot- I consider you to be the best guide maker on the forum.

    Yet I know no way to make the Gnome Menu's transparent. Until Gnome does this stuff without hacks....it might not be able to.

    No, problem. If I find a way to do it I'll post it here.
    Thanks again

    I compiled xgl succesfully with that guide but there is no Xglx in the folder mentioned. O_o

    is Xgl working for you?
    To have Xglx, you need to ./configure (or ./autogen.sh) with the --enable-xglxserver, not just --enable-xgl-server.
    You can use either, or both options.
