Everything about it! Heard the news? What! is Ubuntu bankrupt? Has Mandriva started marketing? Have you taken a sky diving course?

Yup Other deformations like Sphere work too:

But this stuff is only good for presentations. For daily work I would take the Manjaro compiz.

I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.

I don't know if it's me that's changed or if I'm getting too old for this or what, but I'm just not into it like I used to be.

That's all I feel like doing, really.

Maybe it's that Gnome 2 left us altogether. This isn't as fun as it used to be. I miss having a blast with that.

Thanks.

Well well well. I've just had a slight bit of a pick-me-up. I found all my old wallpapers, hundreds upon hundreds (if not thousands), only a few comparatively of which I got to use...

Thanks. Just have to figure some things out for compiz when I'm more up to it.

I have actually used Compiz (compiz-manjaro) with Emerald for days now and I did not even notice. It is smooth without flickering.

I haz a question here. Is there a way to edit the background of the KDE widgets? The white sticks out like a sore thumb here.
