Default compiz-fusion and fedora - take 2 :)

Hi,
first to say that I'm aware of current Fedora and compiz situation [1].
I'm not here to repeat discussion about compiz on by default but to
start a discussion first with users and then include developers on how
to make fedora and compiz-fusion work better.


I find compiz package and not also compiz-fusion package installed a
much needed correction by default and that is why I posted this RFE [2]


Are there any of you who have some better idea how can we make fedora
and compiz-fusion work better for users? I find that installing
compiz-fusion is non-intuitive. Why? Because you need to install it with
this command:


yum install compiz-fusion compiz-fusion-extras compiz-fusion-gnome
compiz-fusion-extras-gnome libcompizconfig ccsm compiz-manager
fusion-icon-gtk

how can this made easier?

What do you think should compiz only be installed by default or should
it compiz-fusion and other packages be installed - yum says all needed
packages for compiz-fusion are 1.7M big.


Cheers,
Valent.

The title of the RFE doesn't make much sense. You might want to correct
that to reflect the current discussion.

Request a meta package or yum group.

Is "RFE: Include compiz-fusion and supporting packages by default" better?

Where do I file RFE for meta package or for a yum group? (fedora wiki
and google searches don't provide any info on yum meta packages).

Cheers,
Valent.

It is more clear, yes.

You can probably provide that suggestion in the same RFE or file a new
one against compiz fusion.


There is nothing called yum meta packages. RPM can have meta packages
(ie) empty packages that can be used to installs a group of other
packages. Yum can also use comps.xml groups which are more flexible.
