I've managed to compile all of compiz-fusion and emerald for Puppy 4 and it's all working fine on my computer.
I'm providing a pet for testing, I'm afraid I haven't been able to test it out on another install to make sure everything's in it.

Update Apr 11 2008 - Reason: "Cube Reflections and cylinder"
Update Feb 18 2008 - New dotpets packed without dependencies.
Update Jan 01 2008 - New directory for my CompizFusion packages (i686 only).
Update Nov 01 2007 - Added two HOWTO's written by cb88 and tombh
Update Oct 09 2007 - Another test, this time compiled in Puppy-3.00 final

What is Compiz Fusion ?

(taken from AboutCompizFusion Wiki page)

Compiz Fusion is the result of a merge between the well-known Beryl composite window manager and Compiz Extras, a community set of improvements to the Compiz composite window manager. Compiz Fusion aims to provide an easy and fun-to-use windowed environment, allowing use of the graphics hardware to render each individual window and the entire screen, to provide some impressive effects, speed and usefulness. The first Compiz Fusion developer release was Compiz Fusion 0.5.2 on August 13th 2007, shortly after Compiz 0.5.2 was released.

Compiz Fusion is an open-source software project, meaning anyone can use it freely and contribute.

It is important to note that Compiz and Compiz Fusion are not the same thing (see: Compiz Fusion Vs Compiz). There is close co-operation between the developers of Compiz and the developers of Compiz Fusion, though ; in fact, many Compiz Fusion developers are also Compiz developers.

* Troubleshooting - Basic troubleshooting guide


Prerequisites:
Easy:
Hard: (not really)
    1. Any desktop environment(KDE, XFCE or GNOME)
    2. The driver for your graphic card must be installed

    3. A properly configured xorg.conf
      nVidia - Proprietary drivers
      Code:
      nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals --allow-glx-with-composite --disable-glx-root-clipping --render-accel --composite --depth=24

      Intel - Opensource drivers
      http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Intel_with_AiGLX
      ATI - Opensource drivers
      http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/ATI_with_AIGLX

    4. And finally
      Open '/etc/profile' with a text editor comment this line:
      Code:
      export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1



      Now you must Reboot the computer.

Download: (Puppy 3.xx)

Requires:

Usage:
    Start Compiz Fusion with this command:
    Code:
    compiz-manager

    Run 'ccsm' or 'simple-ccsm' to configure Compiz Fusion.

Troubleshooting:
    Problem: "Another window manager is already running on screen: 0" Solution: Kill that window manager (example: 'killall xfwm4' if you're running XFCE)

    Problem: There are no icons in CCSM and you don't have kde, gnome or xfce Solution: Download [hicolor-icon-theme-0.10.tar.gz] 6.3 kB (from Grafpup's repo) rename to "hicolor-icon-theme-0.10.pet" and install.

I have an ATI in both my laptop and my desktop, but I figured I'd give it a try anyway. First note, the compiz-fusion package is misnamed. It needs to be "(wow)" instead of "wow" because the internal folder has the parentheses. I renamed it and it installed fine.

I couldn't get it run under xterm so I tried xfce. Xfce isn't even running in 3.00b2 because of some expat problem that I haven't figured out yet. I'll screw around with it more later.

Oh thanks, I forgot that filefront doesn't admit parenthesis in the file name.

Yeah, install Compiz in Puppy may be impossible for now, cause ATI drivers( proprietary) does not support AIGLX, Compiz, Beryl and few more things. In other distros like Ubuntu the solution is an XGL xserver

However I've readed(Phoronix website) something about a new ATI driver which support AIGLX.

Have you 3D acceleration working?

Check if your hardware is supported:

http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Hardware/ATI
http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Hardware/Blacklist

Quote:
ATI with AIGLX

For 1st generation radeons through 4th generation radeons (but excluding the Xpress chipsets)
ATI with Xgl

For 5th and 6th generation radeons (3rd and 4th generation radeons are supported as well, but AIGLX is preferred).

3D acceleration is working, and I have had both xfce and Beryl working on this box under 2.17. Beryl was a royal pain, though. I just downloaded 3.00 final, I will see if that fixes this expat problem.

My card does not appear to be on the blacklist, it is an ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 if I remember correctly. Anyway, I will report back once I have tested it out on 3.00 final.

wow i got it running with the xfce 4 .sfs and it can now be autostarted

emerald doesn't seem to work for me did the commented out the line in /ect/profile
it seems to give a lib-wnck error i think i have your older .pet(ccsm is not in it)that hadn't been fixed to i'll get the new one soon and see if that fixes it

also heard from a possibly unrelyable source that e17 or e16 runs with beryl compiz is that true(or require serious hacking)?

Try changing the color depth to 24bbp.

You may see
Code:
Wnck-WARNING **: Unhandled action type (nil)

reappearing many times. This error is non-fatal and does not prevent normal functioning of Emerald or Compiz Fusion.

I have no idea. AFAIK compiz fusion is a "window manager" like 'kwin'(KDE) or 'xfwm4'(XFCE 4) it just replaces that component in those Desktop Environments.

strangly it required a reboot before emerald would work... not sure why I already knew about the 24b and set that when i booted

i had tryed to restart x several times but it seems that it really needed a reboot for some reason.

downloading deps for ccsm right now.....

edit: got ccsm working noticed that some changes require to restart x and are not instant like activating the ring switcher (the main reason i even bothered with cimpiz-fusion) LOL

Yeah, the INI backend(not compiled in Puppy-3) is not compatible. Try the GConf backend instead: CCSM>Preferences>Backends>Gconf

Compiz Fusion Settings:
Press the 'Preferences' button; choose 'GConf backend'; restart CompizFusion and 'ccsm'.

Yep. I used to run Beryl without any windowmanager, just starting X with startx rxvt and then launching it from there. That had issues with needing two windows open for things to work correctly though. I haven't tried Compiz Fusion yet, maybe things have smoothed out.

I'll have to try this when I get a chance.

I've just compiled everything(development branch) in Puppy-3 and the INI backend still can't apply changes on the fly and few plugins doesn't work properly (screensaver, 3D) Mad

EDIT: Solved, "inotify plugin"(compiled in Puppy3) requires the "inofity-tools" package (Petget) Embarassed
