Ubuntu – Using compiz with xmonad


I've been using xmonad as my windows manager in conjunction with Gnome for some time.
I would like to use compiz was well. Is there a way to combine the two using Ubuntu?

You are probably interested in an alternative:


see http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xcompmgr

And you will then be interested in editing your xmonad.hs and importing items such as

import XMonad.Hooks.*

here is some documentation describing some hooks


xcompizmgr is demo software and since xmonad doesn't refresh, you will experience instability (probably in the form of certain hooks will seem to function but break after a while). But if you are really bent on putting compiz in with xmonad it is the only solution I know of.
