Ubuntu: The First Distro to Ship Compiz-Fusion by Default

As of the Tribe 2 release, due to the awesome work on the part of Michael Vogt (mvo) and Travis Watkins (Amaranth), Compiz 0.5.1 git and the Compiz-Fusion main plugins are not just a part of the default installation of Ubuntu, but enabled by Default, even on the LiveCD.

Of course, it’s only enabled for supported hardware devices, so for you folks that can’t run Compiz, you’ll be greeted by Metacity as always.

The rest of the Compiz-Fusion stuff is also in the universe repository, so feel free to pick it up by running the following command:

sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compizconfig-settings-manager

Keep in mind, Gutsy is alpha software and isn’t recommended for use on your desktop, however, if you’re feeling gutsy, it’s a fun experience. 😉
