Grid install instructions

Install build dependencies (platform specific) perhaps something like:

sudo apt-get install libtool compiz-dev compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-bcop

git clone git://
# if you get build errors you may need to install more dependencies and make again
make install # you can install as a normal user into your ~/.compiz folder

Enable grid in the compiz settings manager (ccsm)



  1. GrEaT! I was looking for a nice tiling solution for gnome, and here it is… although i cannot get it to work!
    I install those packages, and your grid plugin, it does appear in my ccsm, and i reconfigured the key bindings… but nothing happens then! help!

  2. If you’ve got that far ok, I haven’t a clue what could be wrong.
