5 Compiz Effects That Are Actually Useful

Compiz has a lot of nice effects that are mostly useless and I wrote about it before. In my quest to find a work place without distraction compiz effects doesn’t really fit in. Even though examples of compiz effects can be used to demonstrate a superior desktop experience compare to other OS, in reality most of the effects don’t have any practical use other than, “It looks cool”. Few weeks ago when I read about the formation of a new Compiz Council, I was interested to give compiz another try and in the process I actually found some of the effects that actually enhances my desktop experience (unlike wobbly window) and be more productive. Here are five effects that I actually found useful

The Best Screen Capture Software In Linux

seldom use the word ‘best’ when it comes to reviewing apps, but when
it comes to Shutter, it really is the best screen capture tool that I
have ever used in Linux.

Shutter (previously known as Gscrot) is just like a swiss army knife
for all your screen capture tasks in Linux. There are plenty of
features packaged into the software: some allow you to perform screen
capture easily and quickly, while others enable you to process the
screenshots more efficiently. I am surprised that it even contains
features that are not found in some commercial software.

How To Transfer Files Easily Among Linux Machines

Hi Friends,

Let’s say you’ve got two or more Linux machines in your home (or
office). You want to transfer some files from one computer to another,
what are the ways you can do this?

You can either:

* Use a USB drive
* Use Dropbox
* Use SSH (Secure Shell)

What if there is a small application that is simple, fast and allows
you to send files easily without any configuration or technical
knowledge, wouldn’t it be great?

Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 5 Screenshot Tour

“What’s new in Ubuntu 9.04 Alpha 5? Well, there are a few interesting things… You had the pleasure to see some of them this week, thanks to our hard working people who are monitoring every change daily, here at the Softpedia Labs. Among the new features we can notice a couple of new desktop effects. For example, when you enter the GNOME session you will now notice a nice fade effect that makes the transition from the login manager to the desktop. Also, when you change your workspaces… the desktop will not slide anymore, only the opened windows (this is the result of a modification in Compiz’s Desktop Wall plugin).

“And now, for the “hot stuff”…. As you (probably) already know, there is a new notification system implemented a week ago. It is called Notify OSD and it can handle both keyboard actions, such as volume and brightness, and application notifications. What does this mean? Well… for example, when you change the volume or the brightness of your monitor, when a network connection has been established, when an application crash occurs, when someone sends you a message on Pidgin, when a song is changed in Rhythmbox (other media players are also supported)… a very nice and stylish notification will be displayed for a few seconds in the top right corner of the screen. The notifications are black, but if you activate Compiz, they will be a little transparent… and they go completely transparent when you hover the mouse pointer over them. For more details, see the third screenshot on the first and fourth rows.
