I realize that but these settings are not relevant unless using kde window decorator is used, but thanks for your help. If you think of something let me know, I am going to close this out then.

thanks

I'm using KDE 4.7.3 and it works fine with both Compiz or KWin. What exactly do you have installed? Here's the Compiz-related stuff installed on my main laptop:

Hi and thanks compiz itself works fine, what I was inquiring about is why Sabayon compiz does not install the KDE-window-Decorator, in other distro's such as Debian or Arch you can specify one way or the other or both if you want to lean towards KDE or Gnome/gtk, Sabayon installs the gtk version and you can optionally install emerald as a choice, but not KDE. If you use the KDE4-window-decorator, you can keep your KDE theme intact as the decorator and still use compiz as the window manager. couple posts up I give as an example the link to the Arch install instructions. Debian does much the same thing and my guess is if you check Gentoo they will control this with USE_Flags. I appreciate your help int his.

thanks very much.

It can be done: see the last two posts in kde-window-decorator with compiz, and also the comments in the bug report to which the second-to-last post links.

Regarding eix (see SL Wiki for explanation of Entropy and Portage commands):

Code: Select all
# #### Following is a once-only proc. for Entropy users #####
# equo install git # Sabayon Portage overlays use Git.
# equo install eix
# emerge --sync
# layman -d sabayon # Just in case old version of sabayon overlay is already added.
# layman -S # Synchronise with all added overlays, and synchronise overlay list.
# layman -a sabayon # Add new version of sabayon overlay.
# layman -a sabayon-distro # Add recently-created sabayon-distro overlay.
# eix-update # Update eix database for the first time.
# ######### End of once-only proc. #############
# eix --help # For details of how to use.
# man eix # For details of how to use.
# emerge --sync && layman -S # Do this from time to time to update info on Portage packages available.
# eix-update # Do this from time to time to keep the eix database up to date.
# eix <package name> # Tells you what is available and what is installed (via Portage and/or Entropy).

I just tried Compiz with KDE Window Decorator myself, and it does indeed work. I rebuilt the three packages compiz, compiz-fusion and fusion-icon with the kde and qt4 USE flags set too. Here are the USE flags I have got set and not set now:

and I also ran CCSM, ticked General | KDE Compatibility, and changed "emerald --replace" to "kde4-window-decorator --replace" in Effects | Window Decoration. Actually, I can use the Fusion Icon to switch between Emerald and KDE Window Decorator by right-clicking on the Fusion Icon on the Panel and clicking on 'Select Window Decorator', so there's no need to mess around in CCSM really.

(Notice the emerald USE flag is not set in the package compiz-fusion. However I can still select the Emerald window decorator, so I don't know what's going on there.)
