Dear all application developers,
Please add python bindings to all your applications.
About the same time that marex started his awesome work on simple-ccsm, I tried my hand at making a simple-compiz configurator similar to gnome-xgl-settings (I would get a screenshot for you, but I can’t find one) that was shipped with openSUSE 10.1.
It allows the user to make changes to some of the key features of Compiz Fusion – all 50 of them😉 (It’s really hard to decide – Compiz Fusion is so good ^_^). It was written using glade, pygtk and compizconfig-python.
Please note that in no way is this meant to compete with simple-ccsm, or is it simple-ccsm’s replacement. It is just yet another configuration tool that I have put out there (In true linux style, just like there are 50 or so window managers, 3 major desktop environments, 3 office suites, 300 distributions etc). The code is actually quite bloated and when I get the time (read: when my teachers decide to take it easy on the homework, exams and assignments) I will probably simplify it which will most likely result in a 0.0001 ms speed improvement… (sigh).
The thing that sets this and simple-ccsm apart is that simple-ccsm does some neat settings-rating and profile level switching whereas this tool will detect whether your hardware and setup are capable of running CF and give a little more configuration options.
Oh, did I forget screenshots? Here they are:
You can checkout the manager with :
git clone git://git.compiz-fusion.org/users/smspillaz/cfcapplet
Please tell me of any bugs!
PS . I’m late with the blog again😦
