Sub_title: It's possible but would someone do it?
 

I just learned not to long ago that Compiz can be the standalone window manager.

...And that it's remarkably lightweight. This made me wonder if there would be Puppy that uses Compiz instead of Openbox or JWM.

Compiz plus Tint2 or Fbpanel? Compiz effects and Emerald's window decorations while maintaining a small iso size?

Yeah right aarf.. as if you don't know that tigers cause ripples when they jump into a pond Wink

Gnuxo.. slacko-5.3.1 handles compiz ok, with rox as the desktop, lxpanel as the taskbar and Emerald managing windows.. in a similar way to dinky's aforementioned dabble into compiz.. do some searching Wink

Hello Gnuxo,

As 01micko says, Slacko 5.3.1 gets the wobbly boot going very well, it rocks my little old Thinkpad T42P!

I refer you to Micko's Slacko-Puppy thread and post with the relevant info for you: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=591117#59117, also this post, where you'll find a link to the compiz-helper.002 file, rather than using compiz-helper.001, found in the first-mentioned post.

Good luck and happy wobbling Very Happy
