I just returned to ubuntu after a 3 yr use of mint and im loving it so far. I am not getting the burn and explode option in animations/effects. I did my research and I see people downloaded compiz-fusion-plugins-extra package and I tried to find it and it isnt there. How can I get extra effects like burn and explode?
Also, is there a way to change the font colors like in mint? ie panel fonts, window panel fonts etc.
Also, How do you download different themes for 12.10? I have a lot of themes that I use that are saved and everytime I get a new distro, I just download them but i tried here and it said it took but when I click on another pointer, it doesnt come up right away and it only shows up sometimes when i am in firefox. I have also clicked the preloaded pointers/cursors and it still stays on the little white one and sometimes the black shows up in firefox also but wont stay,
