Compiz

  • Get compiz running via compiz --replace.
    • Add this to GNOME's startup applications to make it your default window manager
  • Enable Alt+Tab window switching via the "Application Switcher" plugin
  • Enable Super+Tab folded window switching via the "Shift Switcher" plugin
    • Has some conflicts with "Application Switcher" by default; I disable all but "Next Window", "Previous Window" and "Initiate"
    • Be sure the "Text" rendering plugin is enabled to get window titles
  • Enable desktop backgrounds with the "Wallpaper" plugin

Nautilus

  • Video thumbnailing requires totem-video-thumbnailer, part of the totem package
    • You'll also likely need raise the limit on thumbnailable media files; I thumbnail any local file < 1G

GNOME Panel

  • Transparency can be had regardless of the GTK theme if using compiz's "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation" plugin
    • Add an opacity rule (I use a value of 50): "(class=Gnome-panel) & !(type=PopupMenu | Dialog)"
