    Went to the you tube video and did the script using copy and paste when the terminal got to the end it said there was an error on line 91 and the entire file had been ignored. Please advise n XDG_DATA_DIRS, you need to add /home/vegas/.config/compiz-1/gsettings/schemas to your XDG_DATA_DIRS in order for GSettings schemas to be found!

    Don't forget to restart compiz and ccsm after installing or removing any plugin. Enjoy!
