[Bug 729979] Re: [nvidia] Windows appear blank white


@a-hafner: Andi, I am happy that the instructions for installing Emerald
worked for you as well, and I am happy to hear that your white windows
are gone and that the dodge focus animation is working also 4 you... :)

I am trying to convince the Ubuntu packaging/motu guys to continue
packaging Emerald for modern Ubuntu (12.04, 12.10, 13.04), unfortunately
I did not succeed with this task yet... :(

So every user who wants Emerald to continue to live on their modern Ubuntu system currently has to do some unnecessary complicated actions to make that happen:
For those interested in trying Emerald without having to compile from source, LP-user brainpower also maintains a PPA with .deb packages of Emerald for Precise and Quantal:


Both versions work on Raring as well, so if you are on raring simply
download the .deb files, here for example the AMD64 builds for Quantal
(also working on Raring):


P.S.: Credits for making Emerald compile again on 12.04+ go to
brainpower as well, as he was the first to come up with a solution for
fixing the compilation...
