    Where to get Compiz 0.7.5

    I have looked all over and have tried installing several different packages, but everytime I install them, I go into Synaptic and it still says 0.7.4.

    So far I've tried

    -compiz-0.3.6.tar.bz2 (from Source Packages on
    -Downloading with git (from bottom of

    I believe that these would give me the latest version.

    Thanks for your help.

    0.7.4 is the latest version.

    Installing From Git

    This is not recommended unless you want the absolute bleeding-edge version or are a developer. Because Git is divided into many different repositories, you can use a script to download and build all the components for you. You can check these out by using:

    git clone git://
    git clone git://

    The 'get-git' script will clone and update all Compiz Fusion related modules such as libcompizconfig, compiz and emerald and the 'YAGS' script will clone all plugin repositories. Using yags is fairly simple, just execute './yags $COMMAND' where $COMMAND can be 'pull' 'make' 'make install' 'make clean' 'clone'. YAGS will then apply this command to all applicable directories.

    What I'm trying to do is to get all of the cool effects and stuff for compiz, like cube.

    Should I be looking for the 3D Windows Plugin, and if so where do I get that

    Assuming that you have the latest version, most is installed by default, you just need to add the settings manager

    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
    Then you can get the cube and everything else, once you have got custom enabled in Preferences >Appearances
