As they say, timing is everything.

See my post from today here:


Be sure to remove ALL of the installed RPMS that you got from the tuxfamily site and that TwinView is working properly with X/Metacity, before proceeding with the instructions here:


Note that I DID install compiz-quinn and cgwd as per the How To.

Then follow along with the additional notes in my post. Note that you will need the 'xorg-x11-server-Xgl' and 'glitz' RPMS from the tuxfamily site, which are from June. TwinView is broken for the moment in the more recent versions of XGL, so you need the earlier versions of these from tuxfamily.

However, you want the newer versions of the other stuff from Illiawarra, as they are more stable and include the new Compiz configuration program called 'csm', rather than GConf or gset-compiz, which are now defunct.
