After a lot of preparations in the last weeks, that resulted also in the “curve” expo mode, I’ve finally finished my idea to implement a cylinder deformation for the cube plugin. The code is in the cubeaddon plugin, that is the cubereflex plugin with this new feature.

    Great Work! Looks nice.
    Is it working with 3d Windows?

  2. : Dennis Kasprzyk, April 9, 2008 @ 3:15 pm

    No, and I’m not sure if I can get it working.

  3. : Gianpa, April 9, 2008 @ 3:36 pm

    Does not compile, I get this error:
    compiling : cubeaddon.c -> build/cubeaddon.locubeaddon.c:58: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before ‘CubeShouldPaintViewportProc’

    @Gianpa: You also need current compiz git

    Since his last comment on the subject, onestone has fixed 3d to work – there’s no depth to the windows, but they stack.

    I’m urging everyone else to support the idea of deformed cube-sphere (you take a cube, pinch in the edges, and viola! it’s a sphere: http://www.math.umn.edu/~rogness/mathlets/cubeSphere.html), we’ll see how that goes.

    Compiz Fusion 新特效: Cylinder…

    新的 Compiz Fusion 特效总是层出不穷。先是 Expo 插件增加了曲线模式,现在又有人为立方体带来了 Cylinder (圆柱变形) 效果。实现该特效的代码在 cubeaddon 插件中,想要尝试的朋友请自行取用。闲…

    I love this idea. All we need now is support (and pictures) for a single, all encompassing wallpaper with the ability to be tiled. Great work on this, I can’t wait for it to be included in the latest git update.

    Nice work! What do you think about http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/55/8-cell-simple.gif?

    hmmmmmm interesting idea………

  15. : Brinley, April 10, 2008 @ 7:48 am

    Sweet! Would also be great if you could attach a video of it in action.

  16. : Matt, April 10, 2008 @ 8:58 am

    Just installed this in latest git build, i have to say this takes the desktop on a cube idea to the next level. It just seems more aesthetic then having a cube i guess. Definitely staying in my script folder for installation and updates.

  17. : Paulo Dias, April 10, 2008 @ 3:14 pm

    I compiled latest git, activated the plugin, only it doesnt fold the cube (tried with 4, 8 and 16 faces), the caps appear as circles but the cube stays a cube :( do you know what can be wrong? sorry the poor english.

    thanks for the hard work :)

    Great addition!!!

    @Paulo Dias:
    It looks like, that you don’t have a desktop window. If this is the problem, then use the wallpaper plugin.

  21. : jose moreira, April 10, 2008 @ 4:16 pm

    now this is f*cking cool !!! cheers \O/

  23. : Compiz Fusion Adds Cylinder Effect, April 10, 2008 @ 6:41 pm

    [...] Compiz Fusion is quickly becoming an important part of many Linux distributions, and I don’t think that anyone would argue that the cube effect for switching between desktops is one of the most hyped features. Well, the cube could very well be on its way to retirement thanks to the cylinder effect that was just added. [...]

  24. : Tim Broder, April 10, 2008 @ 8:59 pm

    Nice, I’ll have to try this out with atlantis when I get home

  25. : Paulo Dias, April 10, 2008 @ 9:31 pm

    I dont know what do you mean by “desktop window”, i’ using kde with 4 horizontal desktops (since kde understands virtual desktops differently from gnome). I can activate the wallpaper plugin with same effect , doesnt show the circular desktop, just the cube. can it be a incompatibility between the old cubereflex and yours? do they have the same name/lib?

    feel free to send me private email in order to sort this out.

    best regards

  26. : fcsonline, April 10, 2008 @ 10:08 pm

    Cool!

    What about create an only one desktop as a cylinder? A continous desktop, where you can choose the length.

    Like http://www.360desktop.com/gfx/360d-eg-xtras-white.jpg

    I repeat! Nice work!

    Does this switch workspaces(in the gnome sense) or viewports(in the compiz sense)?

  34. : Kris, May 10, 2008 @ 1:44 am

    It all looks great, but I have a Idea. What about something like Tron’s Master Control Program with a hot chick to replace the gears.

  35. : khirad, September 30, 2008 @ 3:35 pm

    Hey its a nice looking effect but how do i install it. I have ubuntu 8.04 installed.

    Thanks khirad

    I think that’s well cool – would love something like that for a Google homepage. Alot more interesting than the peronalised Google homepage.
