MATE desktop with Compiz Fusion on Fedora 16/17


 
If you are running Fedora 16 or 17 and you are missing your old GNOME desktop with Compiz Fusion effects then you will love this post.
 
Thanks to the great work of Wolfgang Ulbrich for his awesome work on packaging MATE Dekstop for Fedora 16/17 and even bringing it to Fedora 18 by default!
 
Installing MATE desktop is very easy on both Fedora 16 or 17, but installing Compiz Fusion on Fedora 16 is a bit tricky.
 

Fedora 16:

yum install https://dl.dropbox.com/u/49862637/Mate-desktop/mate-desktop-fedora-updates/16/noarch/mate-desktop-release-16-6.fc16.noarch.rpm

yum groupinstall MATE-Desktop

 
Fedora 17:

yum install https://dl.dropbox.com/u/49862637/Mate-desktop/fedora_17/mate-desktop-fedora-updates/noarch/mate-desktop-release-17-2.fc17.noarch.rpm

yum groupinstall MATE-Desktop

 
After sucessfuly installing MATE desktop just log out and on login screen after clicking on your username click on “session” and choose “MATE” before typing in your user password.
 
Installing Compiz Fusion is easier on Fedora 17, but if you follow these steps you will install it without issues on Fedora 16 also.
 
Compiz Fusion on Fedora 16:

yum install -y yum-plugin-versionlock nano

 

nano / etc/yum/pluginconf.d/versionlock.list

 
Now you need to add this text to file “versionlock.list”:

ccsm-0.8.4-5.fc16.noarch
libcompizconfig-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
libcompizconfig-devel-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compizconfig-python-0.8.4-3.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-main-devel-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-mate-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-manager-0.6.0-14.fc16.noarch
compiz-plugins-extra-mate-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-unsupported-devel-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-main-mate-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-unsupported-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-bcop-0.8.8-2.fc16.noarch
compiz-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-extra-devel-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-unsupported-mate-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-plugins-main-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compizconfig-backend-mateconf-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-devel-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
compiz-gtk-0.8.8-1.fc16.x86_64
fusion-icon-0.1.0-0.8.5e2dc9git.fc16.noarch
fusion-icon-gtk-0.1.0-0.8.5e2dc9git.fc16.noarch

 
After you close and save “versionlock.list” you can install Compiz Fusion packages:
 

yum install --enablerepo=mate-desktop-fedora-new-application-testing compiz compiz-mate fusion-icon-gtk compiz-plugins-main compiz-plugins-extra compiz-plugins-extra-mate compiz-plugins-main-mate compiz-plugins-unsupported compiz-plugins-unsupported-mate

 
Compiz Fusion on Fedora 17:

yum install –enablerepo=mate-desktop-fedora-new-application-testing compiz compiz-mate fusion-icon-gtk compiz-plugins-main compiz-plugins-extra compiz-plugins-extra-mate compiz-plugins-main-mate compiz-plugins-unsupported compiz-plugins-unsupported-mate

After all packages are installed just start “fusion-icon” command and enjoy your “new” MATE deskop with Compiz Fusion ;)
