1 - yes.
2 - omg this topic is sticky, search.
I got this working over the weekend on my xubuntu box. Before you start you should make sure that your video card is setup properly. You will need a pretty hefty card to get this to work smoothly.
- First -
Install needed packages from command line, assuming you have an debian based package management system. (if apt-get works you do)
sudo apt-get install compiz-core compiz-plugins compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra emerald compizconfig-settings-manager
- Second -
press Alt+F2, enter compiz --replace, then click Run
- Third -
Open the following:
Applications->Settings->Advanced Desktop Effects Settings.
Beneath the “Effects” heading, click Window Decoration. In the Command input field, enter the window decorator you prefer (emerald if you installed that, xfwm4 if not).
