I’ve been wresting with Compiz-Fusion for the last week and think I’m almost there. Having Gentoo has really indentured me to automated compiling. I never really compiled anything before this that was more complicated than, “./configure && make && make install.” So delving into Compiz-Fusion has been an ordeal. Considering Compiz-Fusion is still a work in progress caused me to learn alot more about the basics of configuring a system to compile. The configure command has a lot of options that builds can rely on, and are needed to help with early builds (like Compiz-Fusion is). I admit at times like these I’m a bit turn-back-timeish, as I see others are able to use debs made by professionsals, but I getting this down.
My life seems to be alot about languages lately because some problems I have been having with another program has led to look up information in other languages. I finally discovered babelfish at altavista that really helped out. I am a bit surprised with all the language support that linux has there wasn’t an app I could find that does this.
On a couple side notes:
