Enable The Hidden Compiz Settings In Ubuntu 8.04

Ubuntu 8.04 made the beautiful integration of Compiz for eye candy. However not all the settings were made available the only options offered by default are None, Normal, and Extra which are a group of settings for different levels of eye candy. If you want to enable the remaining Compiz settings like

  • Desktop Cube
  • Water Effect
  • Cube Reflection
  • Ring Switcher

You need to install the CompizConifg Settings Manager which will open the doors to all the remaning features.

To install the settings manager open a terminal and type.
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

After the install is done you’ll find the manager under.
System–>Preferences–>Advanced Desktop Effects

Enjoy the Ubuntu eye candy and don’t go crazy with all the options.
