Latest QuinnDebs

Latest QuinnDebs

This is a dynamic post which should always hold the information on the LATEST QuinnDebs (see my announcment of them here)


Current Version: 0.8Ubuntu14.

Here is the actual post on the forums.

These debs basically include everything that the community has done to date and are synced with CVS on a regular basis: Additions that have come in the most recent upgrade are in green and bold, previous update are just green.

  • QuinnStorm's 'Zoom on Luunch', now with added 'Zoom Out on Close" for us all to enjoy
  • Switcher now behaves as a special case so that it doesn't zoom (though many people said they thought this was cool - should it still be an option?)
  • The brightness, saturation and opacity options from the opaquefocus plugin by Athropos, _avatar and QuinnStorm
  • The Trannset plugin (Athropos)
  • Lates bugfixes from CVS
  • Latest gnome-window-decorator - including the 'On Top' and 'On All Workspaces' addition.
  • ALT+TAB limited to the current workspace
  • Patches to 'move' and 'opaquefocus' so that they respect transparencies set by transset and the mouse scroll wheel
  • New menu item - 'reset transparency' on gnome-window-decorator
  • fixed up minimize (that provides zooming on launch) to look a bit better with the zoom in/out tooltips/menus (See the 'Side effects of 'zoom-on-launch')
  • Scale windows from the current application only.
  • EdgeFlip original version + rotate (added by Quinn)
  • Changing desktops behaves so that 'classic' desktop wallpaper switchers will now work, the pagers themselves may look strange (reverted in later versions)
  • Fixed a bug that stopped Compiz from opening sometimes.
  • Reverted changes that caused wallpaper changers to work but pagers to malfunctionAdded TrailFocus
  • Added toggle to make windows appear/disappear from the centre of the screen
  • Fixed OpaqueFocus' behaviour with Flash
  • Fixed the 'Scale this application only' so that it can now use WM_CLASS not WM_CLIENT_LEADER, which means it will work regardless of instance.
  • Melvil's patch to stop windows that have a transparency set from changing transparency while being moved.
  • OpaqueFocus no longer causes 'ghosted' windows
  • Added the latest additions to move.c by tommie-lie
  • Removed opaquefocus – the functionality of which is still provided by a special case of trailfocus (which was, in the first place, a modification of opaquefocus…)
  • There is now a toggle to disable drawing of the top and bottom of the cube when it is inverted (so you can see skydome)
  • Added toggle to invert X (as well as Y) for rotating the cube)
  • Added patch to make 'Show Desktop' work
  • Applied patch to show minimised windows in the switcher
  • Applied Radeon patch (tentatively, will be reverted if it causes problems) to allow windows of size greater than the graphics card's max. texture size.
  • Basic theme architecture implemented
  • Theme patch reverted
  • Water Plugin added
  • Bugfixes!
    • Bugfixes by Alex Jasse for his Show_Desktop fix
  • Fix switcher not to show previews for minimised apps (draw an icon instead)
  • Draw an icon for all apps in the switcher
  • Bugfixes
  • Sync with CVS
  • Contents of Ubuntu14 unknown! does anybody have any idea where to find it or if there is a webcvs for Quinn's CVS?
  • Fix for problems with the minimize plugin
  • Sync with latest CVS.

You can find them and their source here or just add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb

deb http://www.beerorkid.com/compiz/ dapper main

To do this use these commands in a terminal

sudo cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list_PRE_QUINN
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

then paste the line in at the bottom of the file and save and close gedit
Finally, type

sudo apt-get update
and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

You should be ready to go!

Changing desktops with classic desktop switchers does NOT work.

What DOES work is desktop WALLPAPER changing with classic systems.

That's true. Imagine for example having a seamless, continous landscape over all the desktops!
