Debian lenny with emerald themes for compiz-fusion

11 01 2009

This assumes that you already have Compiz-fusion installed and are after that little extra.

First off, you’ll need to grab the emerald sources, which can be found here:

http://releases.compiz-fusion.org/0.7.6/emerald-0.7.6.tar.bz2

Do your normal unpack, cd, ./configure, make, make install.

That will work but there’s a small tweak needed to get it running. It places the needed libraries into /usr/local/lib.

Check to see that the path is in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/libc.conf. If it is, good, if not, add it. Then run ldconfig as root. It will update the paths and all should be working after that. Check with emerald –replace.
