alert: no desktop effects by default in F14
 
Hey, desktop folks. I filed this bug last week:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638276

I expected it'd be fixed quickly but nothing's happened so I thought I'd
better drop a note. Due to various messing around in comps to do with
GNOME 3.0, it's wound up a state where at present neither gnome-shell or
compiz-gnome is listed as default in comps, so there's no desktop
effects at all by default in F14 composes; this differs from previous
releases. I think the obvious fix is to put compiz-gnome back in comps
until F15 / GNOME 3.

[As desktop-effects maintainer, and nominal compiz maintainer for RHEL]

I don't really have much of an opinion on it, if compiz was in comps for
f13, it probably should be in f14 too to avoid not having any
default-installed composited desktop, but certainly compiz bugs aren't
something that I'm going to try and fix for f14 myself.

(Note that even less will I fix Metacity compositor issues; compiz is
the recommended Fedora 14 compositor for GNOME 2.)

compiz is definitely not going to be default-installed for f15 and
desktop-effects is going away; for Fedora 15 with GNOME 3 we will have:

GNOME 3 Shell as default GNOME experience
Legacy GNOME as fallback (and selectable if you need it)

Which needs a completely different user experience than the
desktop-effects model of pick-your-UI. So the Fedora 15 Compiz
experience (if someone wants to create one) will be different; it's
going to have to be an entirely different session and not an integrated
option within the default Fedora desktop.

I have the same problem: No "Desktop Effect" on System->Preference menu.
