Marco wm and its zoom effect. Any alternative?

Postby frank38 » 2018-12-17 14:16

I like the ability of Marco (Xfce wm) to expand the dimension of the desktop while it is running in composite mode. I'd like to know if there is a way to get the same effect using another window manager. I know Compiz did it years ago, but I'd prefere something lite.
Thanks.

Compiz-reloaded still can do that. Why do you think it's heavy, when it ran fine on all that hardware ten years ago?

Compiz is in the official repo. I'd prefere other solutions.

That's not the same Compiz. Please read the link.

For what it's worth, upstream Debian has dumped the 0.9 compiz and now has the 0.8.16 compiz-reloaded instead. Start your cubes spinning!
