Eyecandy (easy and updated)

For those who think that low-resources systems are not able to have a bit of candyness, I must say they’re wrong. How to do this on Lubuntu? After reading the great Urukrama’s blog about Openbox configuration we can now do some tricks to do that job.

  • install xcompmgr, kompose (32bit / 64bit) and 3ddesk (32bit / 64bit)
  • add these commands to “/etc/xdg/lxsession/Lubuntu/autostart”
    @exec xcompmgr -c -f -F -r 7.4 -o 0.6 -l -11.9 -t -10.4 -I 0.08 -O 0.08 -D 10

  • use this file insted of your ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml

…and that’s it, we have virtual desktops in 3D, using ctrl+alt+left or right, just like Compiz. That’s all, folks. I hope you like it!
