it's pretty much a default KDE 4.6 running kwin. except of the upgrade to 
4.6.4 a few days ago (from the PPA repo) nothing really changed. but that

4.6.4 as well, there the plugin still works; the only difference being i'm 
running amd64 binaries on my desktop and i386 on the laptop.

like just before it's fully there. just a small grey box that flashes up.

[but if you really want to feel progress, downgrade to 0.5.4 for a minute and 
come back. it's awesome what happened to the interface in between just these 
two releases :-)]
