Metisse is a window manager developed by the In Situ project. Available under the GPL License and exclusively for Mandriva Linux, Metisse differs from a classic 3D desktop ( “the cube”, see Section 2.2, “Compiz Fusion”) because it focuses on an innovative interaction with windows.
Activate Metisse. Clickand accept required packages installation. Then, log out in order to activate the changes.
Select the Compiz Fusion option to enable a 3D cubic desktop. Click Advanced settings to check your options (see Figure 3.2, “Activating 3D Desktop Effects”).
