I'm not a 100% sure on this one, but I think if you try to install Compiz, and it's not supported, the app will let you know.

Compis is already installed.

When I try to start it from Gnome Control Center, I receive error message "Cannot enable desctop effects, sorry".
In the terminal compiz cannot start too, with message:

besus@besus-laptop:~$ compiz
