Just continue reading .. ;)

i use ubuntu hardy alpha 4 and i already have installed master git
here is how i installed mousepoll and showmouse plugin:

1) run “Alt+F2” and type “gksudo gnome-terminal
this will open gnome-terminal with superuser priviledges
2) type :

mkdir compiz_plugins
cd compiz_plugins

3) clone both plugins through git :

git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/fusion/plugins/mousepoll mousepoll
git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/fusion/plugins/showmouse showmouse

4 )

cd mousepoll
make
BUILD_GLOBAL=true make install
cd ..

5)

cd showmouse
make
BUILD_GLOBAL=true make install

done

i hope this helps you

Important : you need master git for both plugins to work !!

Master git is the latest version of compiz.

If you are looking for a way to install compiz fusion from git take a look at this (look at Makefusion script)

Note : if you are going to use makefusion script to install compiz then you don’t need this , as both plugins are already in plugins-extra category
