How to install Compiz in Fedora20-GNOME?

Is it supported?

Compiz is certainly supported in F 20; I have it on my laptop with Xfce. Alas, my understanding is that Gnome 3 and Compiz don't play nicely together.

Gnome and compiz are not good together. However you can install it by

yum install compiz

If you are looking for something to customiz your desktop, gnome tweak tool is a better choice and can be installed by

yum install gnome-tweak-tool
