    I ran following commands in terminal-->

    cd cubeaddon
    make
    now heres the problem.
    When i enter command "make" and press enter, it instead displayes error - "make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.".

    Open your source file > CmakeLists.txt & insert this at the top
    Code:
    cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.8)
    Then in terminal @ the cubeaddon prompt

    Code:
    mkdir build && cd build
    .. cmake
    If your configure passes then run make, ect., if not correct build deps
    Would not know if that plugin will actually build and or work correctly or not in 12.04

    The plugin is available in the compiz-plugins-extra package

    Sorry but i didnt quite understand by what you meant by "Open your source file > CmakeLists.txt". Where is this source file? I am donwloading package by using comanng "git" and not by some browser...

    Cmon dude, i dont about location etc. of such files. I have installed ubuntu for first time before 3-5 days.!! I really dont know much about it.

    So please mention required info as i am a total newbie.

    Thanx for the link but it only tells about installation and configuration of comipiz. Not about installing additional plugins (which i want).
    Ill be really thankful if you can provide me with a link to solve my problem in post-1.
