Setting 3D Desktop in Fedora Linux

How to set 3D Desktop in Fedora Linux

Setting up 3D Desktop in Fedora Linux is a really easy job. Anyone can perform this task and convert his boring Linux Desktop into some high quality 3D desktop machine. The software which we need is Compiz. The Software Compiz is not only available to install on Fedora machines but many other Linux Distributions. They are:-
  • Arch Linux
  • Debian
  • Fedora
  • Gentoo
  • OpenSUSE
  • Pardus
  • Sabayon
  • Ubuntu
The Software is installed by default on Fedora linux 6 and afterwards but must be enabled by the GNOME users by following the steps below:-

Select the appropriate options in System => Preferences => Desktop Effects

KDE users must run the following commands:-

compiz --replace gconf &
gnome-window-decorator &

Compiz has many plugins inbuilt and they can also be added easily.

Here is the Link --> Compiz Plugins

If Compiz is not installed in your system you can follow the following steps to install and run compiz in fedora linux. --> How to enable Compiz on your fedora linux system

And thats it. Check out the 3d Desktop image below.
