Add random colours to burn effect of Compiz

The default burn effect of Compiz can get a bit boring after sometime. So, here's something to 'lighten' things up.

First up, go to GNOME Menu > System > Preferences > Compiz Config Settings Manager

You will now have to go to the Animations Add-on option:

Next, select the Random Colored Fire option:

Thats it! Now close the window and watch the magic unfold!

If you havent activated Compiz or configured it, please go through this post.



  1. sory i can't get burn effect at ubuntu 10.04, , , ,
    how to add burn effect at ubuntu 10.04 LTS? thanks, , , ,

  2. You will have to install an extra plugins package. Type the following in the Terminal:

    sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra

    Next, in the Compiz Manager enable Animations add on. Thats all, now simply change your animation from the Animation tab as you would normally do.
