the official wiki is here:
But to test it, just open the terminal and type
compton &disown (or compton -b )
This gives you the nice default setup
As usual, Arch has a brilliant resource for configuring things..
You can run the effects you want as a command OR edit a text file.
check the arch wiki for more info when you want to roll through compton.
The text file to save will be ~/.config/compton.conf
Of course you can also read the manual page:
