    the compiz-plugins package contains that, but not the latest.

    for the latest, we need to go to compiz: http://www.compiz.org/

    the compiz website seems to only have source code downloads, meaning they expect you to compile from source yourself.

    they provide directions here:

    Re: compiz extra plugins

    there is also the compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported in the ubuntu repos:

    This package provides an extended collection of plugins, which have received
    the least amount of review and are the most likely to be problematic on your
    system.
    compiz is already buggy as hell, and the stuff in that package almost certainly moreso.

    if you want to play with this stuff, please write this down on a piece of paper nearbye to save yourself a headache --

    alt+f2, and then
    metacity --replace
    that command will disable compiz when the bleeding edge plugins inevitably make your desktop unusable.

    this command will turn compiz back on:
    alt+f2, and then
    compiz --replace
