Topic: Mac OS X Expose // skippy // kompose
Many of You know Mac OS X great Expose feature:
Also Beryl/XGL can do something like that:
But there are also two small apps that can give You similar functionality without whole XGL, they are skippy [skippy-xd] and kompose. Also expocity can do that [unofficial patch for metacity] but it is abandonned i thnik.
skippy is just a regular stand alone app, kompose is a KDE extension, but as You can see it can work with fluxbox nicely. It will also work nice with any other NetWM or GnomeWM compilant window manager. skippy-xd is skippy with support for XRender, XComposite, XDamage and XFixes X11 extensions, so You will be able to see movie playing live while running skippy-xd, the same as with XGL.
my skippy config:
% cat ~/.skippyrc [general] keysym = F11 distance = 20 useNETWMFullscreen = true ignoreSkipTaskbar = false [xinerama] showAll = false [normal] brightness = 0.0 tint = white opacity = 160 border = white [highlight] brightness = 0.10 tint = #ffbb88 opacity = 220 border = #8822dd [tooltip] show = true border = black background = #dd8822 text = black font = New Dr. Yoshiabibi-16
kompose is KDE app so there is no special configuration for it, just standart window with options: kompose-config.
