Have you ever dreamed of using Compiz in Enlightenment ?

Elive was the first distro to bring it to the reality!

In the midst of the development in the Elive Labs. Thanatermesis has been experimenting in secret with a special version of Elive! Something that has been wished for/requested for a long time, E17 + Compiz !

UPDATE !!! Now it’s directly integrated in the Stable version of Elive!

Is your computer fast enough?
Of course!


Elive is so blazing fast and light that you cannot believe how smooth it can run in your slow computer! And since you cannot believe it, there’s two small videos that demonstrates it! :)

This computer is the first “Asus Eeepc 701” nettop’s, with only 4GB of hard disk, 500 Mb of Ram and 600 Mhz of cpu (overclockable to 900). The version of Elive used was the stable Topaz or even Gem probably, and was installed using Reiser4 with real time compression to be able to fit in only 4gb :)

And this computer is one of the first models of “Acer Aspire ONE” nettop. This video was recorded recently in a beta version of Elive, manual loading of the compiz features was needed by enabling the Ecomorph emodule and configuring it myself!

How to enable it?


Elive Compiz is now perfectly integrated in the default versions, use it directly on the Stable version!
