SF.net Summary

3D-Desktop is an OpenGL program for switching virtual desktops in a seamless 3-dimensional manner on Linux. The current desktop is mapped into a fullscreen 3D environment where you may choose other screens. Several different visualization modes are available.

The transition from working desktop to fullscreen 3D environment is seamless. In other words when the pager activates you see your current desktop appear to zoom out to a point in space where you can see your other virtual desktops allowing you to select another. The best way to understand is to try it out and get the full effect!

For more info also check out the README and Changelog.

Lastly please note you need XFree86-devel and Imlib2-devel when compiling the source. See requirements below.


3d-desktop has not been in development for some time. Check out Compiz though. It is a compositing window manager that will give you a 3d desktop in a much more dynamic, robust and not to mention very cool way.

OpenGL/Mesa (Hardware acceleration is strongly recommended)
Imlib2       (for your convenience: imlib2 rpm, the sourceforge site, or rpmfind)

(The -devel packages are needed for compilation including XFree86-devel for the XF86VidMode extensions)
