Compound effects in Linux are the magnet that attracts most users to switch from Windows to Linux. From the moment that compiz became incompatible with Gnome-Shell and the installation of packages that generate the famous effects became a little more complicated.

The four versions of Ubuntu behave the same when installing and activating compiz. Similarly, compiz is installed in the case of Xubuntu, Linux Mint, Voyager because they are all derivatives of Ubuntu. This results in low RAM consumption and low CPU load, all good reasons to attract Linux users who do not have high-performance computers. Both the installation and the basic activation and settings of Compiz are done similarly for the four distributions.

Install and Activate Compiz in Ubuntu

In order to install the packages necessary to activate the compiz effects in * buntu / Linux Mint Xfce / Voyager it is necessary to open a terminal tab and run the next command.

sudo apt-get install compiz compiz-core compiz-gnome compiz-plugins compiz-plugins-default compiz-plugins-extra compiz-plugins-main compiz-plugins-main-default compizconfig-backend-gconf compizconfig-settings-manager libcompizconfig0 libdecoration0 python -compizconfig fusion-icon

After entering the command, enter the administrator password and wait for the package installation to complete.
