|Cairo Composite Manager is a lightweight composition manager that uses Cairo for rendering, allowing you to create a large number of effects on the desktop, from shadows and transparencies, to more complex animations. It is especially useful for customizing the desktop using graphics cards no 3D acceleration.|
Like Xcompmgr, Cairo Composite Manager does not completely replace a window manager, as it only provides a platform for desktop effects. However, being light, it becomes an excellent option for lovers of minimalist, fast and light desks.
