Using Unofficial Packages in Linux

Some times we can choose to try some unofficial packages. How? This is the way you can..
First download the tar.gz files from the internet and then extract it in a sepperate directory and install them with:

$ sudo rpm -hiv *.rpm
If you use only KDE you must not downlad

compiz-all-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
compiz-gnome-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
compizconfig-backend-gconf-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
compizconfig-backend-gconf-debuginfo-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
fusion-icon-all-0.1-100.fc8.noarch.rpm
fusion-icon-gtk-0.1-100.fc8.noarch.rpm
Whereas if you use only Gnome you must not download

compiz-all-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
compiz-kde-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
compizconfig-backend-kconfig-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
compizconfig-backend-kconfig-debuginfo-0.6.99-1.fc8.i386.rpm
fusion-icon-all-0.1-100.fc8.noarch.rpm
fusion-icon-qt-0.1-100.fc8.noarch.rpm
Use yum to resolve dependencies. I also had to install the following packages:

$ sudo yum install PyQt mesa-libGLU-devel libdrm-devel
When the installation completes run fusion-icon and you are ready! An icon should appear at your tray. You can access the ‘Settings Manager’ and the ‘Emerald Theme Manager’ from it easily.
