ran the codes but only the fusion flash works no fishies :-(
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
compiz-dev: Depends: compiz-core (= 1:0.6.2+git20071119-0ubuntu1~gutsy1) but 1:0.7.3+git20080310+Qubuntu0 is to be installed
been trying to figure out how to go back to the 1.0.6.2 am currently running 1.6 had same issues in 1.7

Awwww man, MrPC, I hope the quote below from TheeMahn doesn't apply to you, but it may. This was posted on my other post "Compiz options unselect themselves...". The quote was posted on May 12th:

While 198 people means nothing to the 100's of thousands that hit the same site, 197 too many. I will say no more.

It shouldnt, it seems like he is running 1.7 as opposed to 1.8. There are also other eyecandy repos available, but playing with them CAN break your install... be warned!

Again, ask me how I know ;)
I think thats the beauty of beta testing, or so I try to convince myself!

Thanks for the reply, I have run various versions I play around with and if it breaks no big deal doesn't bother me to do a complete reinstall I learn more by breaking it LOL I have currently 1.6 and 1.7 installed no 64 bit I am debating on upgrading my main pc to a allendale cpu and a nv 8800gt card my other machines ones a older pc dont care if I break it thats half the fun pushing it to different limits and the other is a laptop I got with no os came with the t2130 so no 64 bit there but am having fun learning different tweaks and what not I get from here as well as other places.

I updated the original post anyone care to try it running Ultimate Edition 1.7? Runs fine in 1.8 is what I see. bellow is what I refer to:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash
#detect and fully utilize the processor(s)
CORES=1
CORES=$(cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep processor | wc -l)
#Grab & extract plugins
#download animations plugin
wget http://repoubuntusoftware.info/scripts/animation.tar.gz 2>&1 | sed -u 's/.*\ \([0-9]\+%\)\ \+\([0-9.]\+\ [KMB\/s]\+\)$/\1\n# Downloading \2/' | zenity --window-icon=/usr/share/ultimate/ubuntu_ico.png --width=600 --height=100 --progress --auto-close --title="Downloading Animations Plugins..."
tar xfv animation.tar.gz
#Maze plugin
wget http://repoubuntusoftware.info/scripts/maze.tar.gz 2>&1 | sed -u 's/.*\ \([0-9]\+%\)\ \+\([0-9.]\+\ [KMB\/s]\+\)$/\1\n# Downloading \2/' | zenity --window-icon=/usr/share/ultimate/ubuntu_ico.png --width=600 --height=100 --progress --auto-close --title="Downloading Maze Plugin..."
tar xfv maze.tar.gz
#static plugin
wget http://repoubuntusoftware.info/scripts/compiz-plugins-static-0.0+git20080514.tar.gz 2>&1 | sed -u 's/.*\ \([0-9]\+%\)\ \+\([0-9.]\+\ [KMB\/s]\+\)$/\1\n# Downloading \2/' | zenity --window-icon=/usr/share/ultimate/ubuntu_ico.png --width=600 --height=100 --progress --auto-close --title="Downloading Static Plugin..."
tar xfv compiz-plugins-static-0.0+git20080514.tar.gz
for i in `ls -d */` ; do
echo "Compiling $i";
cd $i ;
make -j$CORES install | zenity --progress --pulsate --auto-close --width=500 --title="Compiling $i plugin";
make clean ;
cd .. ;
done


This will add maze, helix animation & static plugin. Helix is the shiznit. Let me know how it goes.
