This is a project on, working for compiz 0.8.x on Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04, 10.10. This is a script that installs additional experimental plugins not provided in the official repositories. NOTE: compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported is no longer in the official ubuntu repos as of 9.10 release. This script includes the plugins that were provided by this package. As of 10.04, compiz-fusion-plugins-extra is not installed by default so the script installs it as well.

The latest 2.2 version Added Atlantis and 3D-Cube Model.
