Installing Compiz on Ubuntu 10.10

Recently published an update to the unstable one of the most powerful window manager, Compiz, from version 0.9 to 0.9.2.

This update includes many bug fixes and new features, including:
  • Multianima class, which allows multiple copies of windows animations.
  • Preview of minimized windows in vivo (this has nothing to do with the "fudge" that makes Windows Vista and 7).
  • Plugin rewritten to group.
  • Natural scale mode.
  • Simplified storage of the shadow that is part of the decor.
  • Easy Setup.

And highlighting the last point, if you do not mind that it is a development version, here are the steps we propose to install the latest version unstable branch Compiz on Ubuntu:

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:unity/ppa
  • sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
  • sudo apt-get remove –purge compiz
  • sudo apt-get autoremove –purge
  • sudo apt-get clean
  • sudo apt-get install compiz
And presto! Here's a new prescription.
