View Full Version : [SOLVED] compiz cube plugins ubuntu 12.04

I apologize in advance for creating this thread; I tried to post my question in the sticky, but the thread was closed...

So, I am trying to get cube caps to work with ubuntu 12.04. More generally, I'm trying to install this plugin: http://wiki.compiz.org/PluginsExtra

because it has lots of nice little tweaks.

Is this possible in ubuntu 12.04? Here's what I did in terminal:

x@x:~$ mkdir compiz
x@x:~$ cd compiz
x@x:~/compiz$ git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/fusion/plugins-extra

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
x@x:~/compiz/plugins-extra$ make -f Makefile.am
Makefile.am:12: *** missing separator. Stop.

What can I do from here?

The Extra Plugins are in Ubuntu's repos. Install compiz-plugins-extra.
