Enabling Compiz Fusion On A Fedora 15 GNOME Desktop (NVIDIA GeForce 8100)

This tutorial shows how you can enable Compiz Fusion
on a Fedora 15 GNOME desktop (the system must have a 3D-capable
graphics card – I’m using an NVIDIA GeForce 8100 here). With Compiz
Fusion you can use beautiful 3D effects like wobbly windows or a desktop
cube on your desktop. I will use the free nouveau
driver in this tutorial instead of the proprietary NVIDIA driver.
nouveau is an accelerated Open Source driver for NVIDIA cards that comes
with experimental 3D support on Fedora 15 – on my test system 3D
support was working without any problems.
