I am a long-time Linux lover and user, and have been mainly on Ubuntu Gnome and Budgie.
I come across Arco Linux and Hefftor by chance a couple of months ago and I loved it right from the beginning. The XFCE desktop it totally underrated when it comes to both appearance and configurability. The XFCE window manager is also way richer than I expected.
What I am missing, though, are a few more effects that could be added to the windows. I reckon these have been stripped in order to keep the DE’s lightweight and responsiveness. Nonetheless, I thought I give it a try and install the Compiz WM to add the effects from there. I remember having used CWM on Ubuntu a couple of years ago, and it was working fine. To my surprise, the effects I tried on XFCE din’t implement at all.
Is this due to not having loaded the CWM correctly? And if so, would loading it replace the origininal XFCE WM?
How would I proceed to get the effects from CWM working safely? Is using the CWM on XFCE even recommended?
