Downlaod Cairo effects for Lubuntu

Now we host the Cairo Compositing Manager, so you can download it whenever you want. And of course you can install it on Lubuntu 12.04 (even its version is older than the Precise Pangolin, it worked fine). I’ve updated the Tools page and posted links for both i386 and amd64 architectures. Enjoy!

Cairo Composite Manager

Beautify your Lubuntu with this handy tool. Thanks to Sergey Davidoff, who shared his PPA. I’ve already recommended xcompmgr, but it’s difficult to config because it’s CLI (command line) only. This great app has a nice config gui among other things, like plugins, wide settings, and much more. Now it’s available for Lubuntu 11.10 (or any other Ubuntu flavour).You can install this by typing this in a terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:shnatsel/staging
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cairo-compmgr

And look for it at the system menu. Have fun!
