Compiz-Fusion in Foresight

Foresight repos only have the most modern drivers for nVidia GeForce cards and, unfortunately, my GeForce4 MX 420 is considered a bit long in the tooth these days.

Nevertheless, some guy in the forums pointed me to this excellent guide to install legacy nVidia drivers in this OS. This worked perfectly for me although the whole thing took about 45 minutes.

In addition, I was able to install fusion-icon, which I consider to be an indispensable adjunct to compiz-fusion, from 

sudo conary update fusion-icon=@f1:2-devel

After this I was readily able to start AWN which is preinstalled in Foresight.

So, Foresight starting to look very good now.
