Toggle btw compiz&metacity with fusion-icon in Ubuntu Hardy


Since gusty, compiz-fusion will start by default. I love eye candy but for resource shortage reason on my old box, sometime i need to switch to metacity. with alt-f2 and run 'metacity replace' is just work but not convenion. Thank for Tom that point me . Fusion-icon is use to switch between compiz and metacity window manager. For hardy, fusion-icon is in repos. installation is easy like

pnix@pnix-a7n:~$ sudo aptitude install fusion-icon
