Recently, a lot of problems have been caused for Ubuntu users by using this guide.
Do yourself a favor. Don’t use it. It features 3 main problems
- It installs to /usr, overwriting previous Compiz Fusion default installations
- It really just goes to the effort of installing the version of compiz already installed from source – something completely necessary.
- It will break all configuration applications because it launches Compiz with the gconf backend and not the ccp backend.
It goes without saying, if you want to install Compiz Fusion, please use an official guide.
