+1 also using ccp allows us to use the compiz-settings tools and not
require user to use gconf-editor.

yes I now.. but what is the compiz maintainers opinion on this?

I just emailed him about this .. lets wait for his response

it doesn't have to be exported. just call setenv() in desktop-effects.c
and in gnome-wm start compiz with LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 compiz ...

some cards doesnt require the env export (eg: nvidia) .. and for
fglrx, it require a LD_PRELOAD to a library file from fglrx driver
package instead (I heard XGL no longer required .. I dont have any ati
cards , couldnt test it) ..

aiglx-default.patch and tfp-server-extension.patch already removed the
requirement for  LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT .. so this is no longer a
problem ..

those 2 patches were taken from compiz 0.3.6 src.rpm btw ..

btw. I would suggest to use --ignore-desktop-hints by default. because
else compiz uses viewports *and* workspaces at the same time when
started via desktop-effects ...which is just weird.

about the gnome-wm patch .. aint that need to be applied in
gnome-session rpm?? ..

another thing .
I just added fusion-icon packages into the repo .. fusion-icon is an
app similar to beryl-manager ..
