*buntu 8.10 is due for release tomorrow. But it's basically done -- you can get a daily build image here:

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/daily-live/current/

There won't be much changed in the next 24 hours, and whatever is can be updated via adept manager or apt-get. :)

I can't get the cube to work right in my Fedora 9/KDE 4.1 install. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with KDE 4.

KDE 4.1 has some issues with older Nvidia cards (pre-5000 series), so that's one problem. Also *buntu 8.10 has a new version of X.org that is giving people some challenges. Here's the 8.10 release notes -- you can see whether any of those issues are behind your Compiz problem:

http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/810

The only thing I've noticed on mine is that the KDM login GUI does not always run automatically on boot. Half the time it dumps me to the CLI and I have to log in there and run "startx". But then it starts every time -- it might be due to overclocking or something like that.

I just saw this thread and thought i would show off some
screenshots. Running a custom Gentoo install, kde3 and 4
and, Compiz-Fusion. For those of you interested in checking
out Compiz-Fusion without doing a linux install. You can dl
the Sabayon Linux LiveDVD. It comes with all the different
video drivers already installed and Compiz-Fusion. Sabayon
is a Gentoo based distro. For those of you with ATI or Intel
video cards i would recommend Ubuntu/Kubuntu. ATI and
Intel both have Open Source drivers and Ubuntu comes
with Compiz-Fusion already installed 'it just needs to be
activated' and, is very user friendly.

Anyhow here are a couple of screenshots. First is the Cube transformed
into a Cylinder and the second is the Cube transformed into a Sphere.






Here is a video with WinXP running fullscreen on viewport 4.

Wow this thread was a god send.

I've tried like three versions of Linux for My PS3 and I can't figure out how to...

A. Change the Resolution

B. Make it KDE style

C. Get the internet to work.
Also I know this is a screenshot thread but since its linux related can you guys help out thanks?

Plus for some reason I have no System selection in my task bar only Application, Places and my name I think.

xubutnu or whatever its called 8.10
