    Default Emerald, Compiz, Themes


    Okay, So I am in the dark about making the most epic desktop ever, I
    installed compiz, emerlad, and theme's etc. But emerald doesn't work, it
    wont change themes, nor dose compiz, I am going to try again clean, But
    I would like step by step instructions in absolute beginner talk about
    how to change themes and make a pretty desktop, more importantly about
    how to install the manager's and so they work, and how to install the
    themes and how they work.

    Whatever desktop first make sure you do NOT use auto login. Disable via
    Yast Users.

    In kde4. You use Configure Desktop. You need to find Session Manager.
    (it's in different places, depending on which version of kde4 you are
    using) In there, change the window manager to compiz. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace
    - to restart the desktop/

    I'm using kde4.2 beta, but it's not for the novice, still unstable -
    though I have no issues with it, and the default kwin desktop effects
    are now really good, you don't get all the compiz themes of course, but
    the effects like the cube desktop work perfectly.
