The first things I changed in compizconfig-settings-manager (CCSM) in Fedora

  • Turned off “Static Application Switcher” and turned on “Application Switcher”
    Affects what you see when you ALT-TAB
  • Made sure Expo was turned on
    (Keystroke: WIN-E)
  • Turned off “Snapping Windows” (annoys me, personally)
  • Turned on “Shift Switcher” – This caused some conflicts in keybindings so I chose Resolve Conflicts and Disable Zoom Windows and Disable Exit Expo.
    Keystroke: WIN-TAB

Getting all the “extra” screensavers in Fedora Linux

Fedora (and Ubuntu) Linux users looking for more screensavers should install the package xscreensaver-gl-extra via their favorite package manager:


Use yumex, or via command line:
sudo yum install xscreensaver-gl-extra


Use Synaptic, or via command line:
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver-gl-extra
