    Oh, I had forgotten the most important thing:
    - provide me the graphic card model and driver.
    - provide me the list of your repos, just enter in the console "zypper lr --d" and post the relevant part of the information.

    now I have time

    assuming you prefere compiz 8.7 the task is easy.
    - the contents in the 8.7 repo, originally ...x11/suse12/compiz take 17 Mb I could upload it but I don't know where. Perhaps I could open a little ftp?
    - add following:
    Index of /repositories/home:/lOtz1009:/emerald/openSUSE_11.3
    - from yast make a local repo as path to some empty folder to fit the compiz rpm's.
    I continue later

    Hi Hanzdersion
    OK, assumig you install the old compiz:

    the repo for compiz-0.8.6, I mean "/x11/compiz/suse 12" is closed, but I have a complete copy of it, 17 Mb.
    - plan a: I upload it somewere but no idea where.
    - plan b: here is the list of all relevant packages in the repo.

    compiz-0.8.6-49.1.x86_64.rpm
    compiz-bcop-0.8.4-5.1.x86_64.rpm
    compiz-branding-openSUSE-0.8.6-49.1.x86_64.rpm
    compiz-gnome-0.8.6-49.1.x86_64.rpm
    compiz-manager-0.6.0-57.1.noarch.rpm
    compiz-plugin-photowheel-0.8.6.git-1.1.x86_64.rpm
    compiz-plugins-extra-0.8.6-5.4.x86_64.rpm
    compiz-plugins-main-0.8.6-7.1.x86_64.rpm
    libcompizconfig-0.8.4-3.2.x86_64.rpm
    libcompizconfig-backend-gconf-0.8.4-3.1.x86_64.rpm
    simple-ccsm-0.8.4-49.1.x86_64.rpm
    simple-ccsm-kde-1.1-9.1.x86_64.rpm

    NB: debug, devel and no longer working are not listed here.
    I saw by rpmfind the same rpm's, just a later build.
    They could easily do.

    - plan c: Total = 4.3 Mb. I send it by email in one or two packs.

    let me know, please

    thanks for the quick reply,

    TBH with you I would rather install 8.7 because 9.5 requirements are not feasible to me...
    First it would require downloading gnome 3 full, and my HD space is limited and my Internet connection is not good. Second I'm rather fond of my KDE panel and have it customized just the way I like

    So if you'd be so kind as to provide some general instructions for getting compiz 8.7 to work even if is not 100% stable, I'd be forever indebted to you. I've been stuck with Kwin effects since I switched from 11.3 !! lol

    Thanks

    Hi Hanzdersion, assuming you got the packages do following:

    - put the folder compiz in ~/.config
    - create somewhere a new folder with some name, "aka" compiz_8.6
    - copy the rpm's inside the folder
    - in yast-repositories add a local repository with path to that folder
    - add the repository
    Index of /repositories/home:/lOtz1009:/emerald/openSUSE_11.3
    - yast.install software:
    install everything from the local repository
    install emerald and themes.

    turn on desktop effects, not necessary but provides a smoother transition.
    personal settings - default applications - window manager - compiz. It can be necessary to try many times.
    if not working then the atomic weapon:
    open a console and type compiz-manager& "enter", if doesn't work wait a few seconds and try again.it should start with an emerald decoration, because I configured it like this. Other options are metacity --replace and kwin --replace.
    If is still not working, logout-login and try again.
    It should start quite easily, don't use "zoom" (= super + button 4 or 5) because incompatible.
    Let me know, please, later I will post information about configuring, ccsm doesn't work by wrong python version, and perhaps also the 2 *.py rpm's in the repo, but ...NO PROBLEM!

    Sir, you are an absolute genius !!!!

    I got it working in no time and I'm in awe, really. I had forgotten how fast and smooth compiz is
    The configuration file you sent me has nice a assortment of effects configured, I just had to change the screen resolution set there, to match my monitors (1600x900)

    I feel like you should upload the files to some site like rapidShare or similar and post the link here, so any other non-conformist penguin can have a chance to download it.

    If anyone is interested:
    -if installing from yast, You must make sure you are installing compiz from the repository you create and not from openSuse or any other repo you may have active. Setting a high priority did not work for me, I had to manually check my repo from the "version" tab in yast. Also you will have to brake CCSM by ignoring the python 2.6 dependencies...
    As for installing gnome and metacity, I'm not sure it was necessary, but I did it nonetheless because it would not allow me to install compiz-core otherwise.


    Cheers to you Capodastro! Thanks to you I have a fast desktop again, I am forever indebted my friend,

    Thank you.

    After checking on a "fresh install": if you don't have vmware products installed you really don't need to install gnome 3.
