Adding a little festive cheer to your desktop...

or "No! Not more Snow!" - depending on your point of view! Now there is a cute little extension available for Core users - Let It Snow!:

The screenshot shows mouse pointer over the extension that gets placed in the panel - this allows how much, little, or none at all of the falling snowflakes.

Enjoy! (or Hate if you so wish!) :lol:

I would worry about what will happen to your computer when that snow melts.

Don't worry Aravisian, it's not as damaging as Compiz Water effects! :lol:

Oh HA HA Very Funny SWARF! :D

On another note, Compiz never worked for me on Zorin OS. It didn't seem to work well with Gnome shell 3, and it doesn't work under XFCE desktop either. I think Compiz is a failed project that needs somebody with actual programming skills to fix it and make it work for all Linux.

I have used Compiz on Zorin 12.4 quite successfully---- As long as you use Gnome-Flashback
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gnome-flashback

You must log our and then select Gnome Flashback where you would select your desktop environment prior to logging in.
You also will need to install ccsm.
Compiz Reloaded works on XFCE - it comes with the package manager on MX Linux 18. I have done this on MX Linux, as well.
I have not tested Compiz on Zorin 15, at all.
