INSTALL SCRIPT METHOD
    Install scripts will work with any distribution. The install scripts
    will only install dependencies on Ubuntu based systems. IF you are
    using a different system, the scripts will tell you what dependencies
    you will need to install MANUALLY. Once dependencies are satisfied, the
    scripts will compile and install compiz-reloaded for you.

Know of a distribution who is offering COMPIZ-RELOADED? Please let me know so I can keep this section updated. Please supply a link to distro specific install instructions if available. Thank You.

UPDATE April 7, 2016
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
Manjaro users: Package emerald09 will ask to replace emerald-git if you
have it installed. You may end up breaking compiz if you allow the update.
You may also get other errors. Since I run without window borders, I
removed emerald-git from my system. You can also use "IgnorePkg = emerald0.9"
in your /etc/pacman.conf file. This will prevent pacman from offering to
push the update to you.

PLEASE DO NOT POST SUPPORT QUESTIONS IN THIS THREAD. USE THE SUPPORT LINK ABOVE. THIS THREAD IS FOR COMPIZ RELATED TUTORIALS. SUPPORT QUESTIONS WILL BE REMOVED. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Windows assumes the user is an idiot... Linux DEMANDS Proof!

COMPIZ-EFFECTS ON ENLIGHTENMENT (E-17)?

I compiled and ran it yesterday on voidlinux. compiling was SUPERSIMPLE and took me about 10 minutes.
However, you have to note, that the compiz-module is for MOKSHA, a fork of e17. it will NOT work on e17, e18, e19 or e20 (I tried the later myself and crushed it).

And indeed, there are guides for building it on a variety of systems:
  • You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
  • You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
  • You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
  • Obviously you can add the Bodhi-Repositories on Ubuntu-Systems and install from there without compiling
There are also some You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and of course the compiz-effects, which require a particular build-/install-order:
Note, that once installed, Ecomorph has to be ENABLED in the modules-section of the menu (VERY brief description You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login).

If necessary, I can recompile & install Moksha on my system and write a more in-depth guide to this :)

Edit1:
What I did (after sastisfying all dependencies, which were mostly -dev packages of enlightenment and its components) was downloading the latest release of moksha from github: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login


Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
cd moksha-desktop
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make
sudo make install
cd ~/

Afterwards, I cloned the two compiz modules for Moksha and built those:

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
git clone https://github.com/JeffHoogland/ecomp
cd ecomp
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make
sudo make install
cd ~/

Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
git clone https://github.com/JeffHoogland/ecomorph
cd ecomorph
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make
sudo make install
cd ~/

And i was done :)

Note:
if you start your desktop with "startx", edit your ~/.xinitrc and add "exec enlightenment_start" to the end of it.

Edit2:
There is an AUR-package for Moksha: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
However, none for Ecomp or Ecomorph, so you have to build them manually (as shown above).
