I have compiz installed on centos 6.6, and I’ve been testing 7.1, but I can't find any info on installing compiz on 7.1. Is there any info for this or is it not supported yet?

I installed the kde option for centos 7.1 and it has desktop effects built in....


On my Centos 7.x box:

$ yum list available | grep -y compiz
compiz.x86_64 1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux nux-dextop
compiz-debuginfo.x86_64 1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux nux-dextop
compiz-devel.x86_64 1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux nux-dextop
compiz-lxde.x86_64 1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux nux-dextop
compiz-mate.x86_64 1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux nux-dextop
compiz-xfce.x86_64 1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux nux-dextop

looks as if it's not available for Gnome.

I also vaguely recall recently seeing a posting that the reason for it not being
available for Gnome is that Gnome already has compositing stuff built in.
But I could be wrong about thatl.


I noticed that too.  When I installed centos 7 the second time, I noticed a kde desktop and a gnome desktop in the offering.  If you don't select either (my first try before selecting kde), what desktop is installed?
