Install Compiz Fusion From Source Tarball - Part 1

Compiz Fusion will make your Linux Desktop has special effect. In thins article, I will show you how to install Compiz Fusion from source tarball. For your information, my specsification are Slackware Linux 12.1, KDE 3.5.7, Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz, RAM 768 and VGA GeForce MX400. Before you install compiz fusion, you must read the instructions below for the preparation:

1. Hardware setup and configuration
Check if your Hardware support Compiz, Download compiz-check.sh and run it. To provide 3D acceleration to Compiz, you need to setup and configure your hardware.

2. Download Source Tarball Compiz Fusion.
You can download from http://releases.compiz-fusion.org/. Fyi, I use compiz fusion 0.8.4:
ccsm-0.8.2.tar.bz2
compiz-0.8.2.tar.bzz
compiz-bcop-0.8.2.tar.bz2
compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.2.tar.bz2
compiz-plugins-main-0.8.2.tar.bz2
compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.2.tar.bz2
compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.8.2.tar.bz2
compizconfig-backend-kconfig-0.8.2.tar.bz2
compizconfig-python-0.8.2.tar.bz2
emerald-0.8.2.tar.bz2
libcompizconfig-0.8.2.tar.bz2
simple-ccsm-0.8.2.tar.bz2

3. Download Dependencies.
Slackware 12.1 requires three dependencies to install compiz fusion:
- Because intltool in Slackware 12.1 is outdated, you need update it. You must download newer version. I use Intltool version 0.40.6.
- Download Gconf. Compiz need Gconf. I use GConf version 2.26.0.
-Download ORbit. Gconf need ORbit. I use ORbit version ORBit2 version 2.14.17.

That is for the preparation. In the next article, I'll show you how I install Compiz.
