and make it work but I don't remember how. This is what I have installed

$ dpkg -l *compiz* |grep ii
ii  compiz                                         1:                                 OpenGL window and compositing manager

ii  compiz-plugins-main-default                    1:                         Compiz plugins - main default collection
