We introduce a nonlinear dispersive quintic equation. Its travelling waves are governed by a linear equation. We construct a large variety of explicit compact solitary waves. Some of these compactons are very robust, others decompose very quickly. Numerical simulations also reveal the existence of compact travelling breathers.
