Dear Fedora team ,
can’t see in settings the render option as in fedora 34 / 35
therefore cant do compiz cube .
Is there any way we can fix that ?

It’s been a long time since I’ve used compiz, but since it worked in f34/35 and not Fedora 36, I wonder if it might be related to the unfortunate removal of some of the hardware acceleration for radeon cards in Mesa:
For Fedora Linux users currently making use of Mesa's VA-API support with the open-source AMD graphics driver or similar and using it to speed-up H.264, H.265, or VC1 decoding, you may soon be out of luck and will have to fall-back to either using...
That said, AMD ships it with the proprietary amdgpu-pro driver and some have attempted to package it to work with Fedora. YMMV:

Those are video codecs; they would not be used by compiz.

Thank you for a prompt reply.
i was able to install as well as to compile compiz.
then running compiz removes all closing window crosses till reboot.
The issue is that it does not exist in “settings” anymore and therefore is not easily wrapped to KDE at all .
