Today I got a copy of Ubuntu 9.10 and installed one of my friends PC.
Then he asked me to install compiz & compiz fusion plugins in his pc.
I check the network ( Internet )and it was working fine.
first I updated.
$sudo apt-get update
the update worked fine.
then install ccsm
$sudo aptitude install simple-ccsm
He had a Nvidia AGP graphics card, so installed Nvidia drivers
$sudo aptitude install nvidia-glx-173 nvidia-173-kernel-source nvidia-glx-173-dev nvidia-settings
After installation went to System/Administration/Hardware Drivers
Then the system searched for available drivers and i choosed the recommended Nvidia accelerated graphics driver (version 173) option from the list and then activated the driver by clicking Activate button.
Restart the system, so that the new nVidia graphic display driver will be ready for use.
Then enabled the desktop effects by clicking System/Preferences/Appearance and on the Visual Effects tab, selected Normal .
Run Compiz :
To run Compiz for the current session, hold Alt, then press F2, then enter the command
To configure Compiz and associated plugins, hold Alt, then press F2, then enter the command
