    Smile Great plugins of Compiz.

    Hi all, I saw some great plugins of Compiz in action in youtube videos.Thy are:-
    1. Screensaver
    2. Newton
    3. Elements
    4. Freewins
    5. Stack Window Switcher

    How can install these plugins ? Some post tells that I should use git or make [I do not know how to compile a source code and have not used git for anything.] Is it available if I add some ppa or some other repo ? What is compiz++? Are all plugins available by default in compiz++?

    Also tell me if there are any other great compiz plugins not installed by default.

    Thank you all in advance.

    Re: Great plugins of Compiz.

    First off, lets start with the easy way to get compiz installed: 1. Applications: Add Remove
    2. type in ccsm
    3. select compiz
    4. install

    As for the extras try this:

    maybe give this line of code a try in Terminal:

    sudo apt-get install compiz*
    That should give you a bunch of the extra plugins.

    Re: Great plugins of Compiz.

    Know that you may have stability issues when playing with compiz. If you decide to go ahead with it then go with these commands to add the compiz ppa and install the unsupported plugins. I don't know for sure which plugins it will install but it's bound to have more than the usual ones.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:compiz/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported

    Re: Great plugins of Compiz.

    Thank you koleaptro, But my repo is already the ppa of compiz with all unsupported plugins installed. I think there is some special way for getting these additional plugins. Can somebody suggest?

    You have to compile the latest Compiz Plugins from GIT. In this post there is a script at the bottom which automatically downloads and compiles Compiz and all the Compiz plugins from git (but the script is in French).

    Thank you. But that did not help much. The plugins I asked for were not installed and the error descriptions did not help much as it was in French.

    Instead this script did the job very clean.

    Me again

    i tried to install with script from here but it's no longer working because the dev has changed the script.

    And yes this script is up to date. Working flawlessly, except i couldn't find the newton effect

    Try the following in terminal one by one

    Code:
    git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/users/xytovl/newton
    cd newton
    make clean
    make
    make install
    BTW, the repository of all plugins of compiz is here. Click on the item you want, in the next page, there will be a line at the left bottom that starts in git://... Copy that and paste it in terminal prefixing git clone just like the first command above. All the rest is same. Compile as many as you need and enjoy.

    Happy compizing !
