HowTo: install Compiz + Extras UE3.6, Ubuntu14, Mate, Debian

Postby Zaileion » Thu Nov 28, 2013 2:14 pm

Has anyone figured out a way to install Compiz Extras like Burn, and Beam-Up in the latest versions of Ultimate Edition or Ubuntu? Compile from source, or somehow install from precise sources? There has to be a way...

Fantastic Videos. The effects are awesome.

What I am trying to do is find a way to workaround the removal of such effects and re-add them back into the newer versions of Ubuntu which would in turn allow me to add them back into ultimate edition 3.6 and up.

I am currently using 3.5.2 but would like to upgrade to the latest and greatest but am not willing to sacrifice the animation add-ons or experimental add-ons (which I added myself).

After reading your above posts and watching the videos I see there are even more effects. Many of which I’ve never seen. How do I add these additional effects such as helix, and the animated dropping windows thing in your video?

is there some backward or unconventional way to get these effects working in any distro based on Ubuntu 12.10 and later?

I do indeed. :D

But... I've downloaded Ultimate Edition 3.7 loaded it onto USB stick and have been trying every possible instructions I can find to install these animation ad-dons. I've tried scripts (one from this forum from jonnyg) and a few others. I've tried to compile each plug-in from source, I've tried installing from the compiz repo for precise All with no luck. the amount of time is prob 10 hours total. A quick few lines of instruction, or a website of instructions that work. Is this even possible, and if so can you provide a quick bit of info just so I know where to begin.

Thanks very much.

Ok. So I knew all that. But, I still want to install them. Is there a way? Any way, that I can bypass the removal and install them. I thought that was one of the benifita of Linux. That I can do whatever I want. In this case Conocial has told me and everyone else that we cannot install these regardless of what we want. So after reading, researching and seeking answers ever since the release of 12.10 and I have yet to find a solution. Is there a way to install these addons regardless of any other issues. Can I take the packages from 12.04, or is there a way to compile them myself and install them? Simply put. I don't care about performance issues I want the annimation dd-ons and am very unhappy with the decision to simply ban people from using them. That's my choice, otherwise I might as well use Windows. Sorry for the context errors I posted this with my phone...

There is a fork of compiz in works, I personally have not had the time to venture down this road nor further investigate.

That would have been perfect. looked like that fork had it all... problem is the repos are dead... redirected 2 times then nothing found error... I tried both the wgit commands and adding sources, and both.. what do i have to do to get compiz animation add-ons working in any version of Ubuntu later then 12.04? Pay someone? Done. Who's has the know how, is willing and how much do you want?

I just purchased a C+ instructional book and disk set. 40 hours of audio, 17 hours of video and a 900+ page book... hopefully when i work through it i will be able to program a little. that doesn't help me now though.
