The Debian package manager system rules, Ubuntu is based on Debian, and now I refuse to use any distro that isn't Debian based lol, I can't seem to find a good lightweight distro with the apt-get/synaptic features. I know the older versions of DSL did, but the new ones don't have Synaptic
then: sudo apt-get install synaptic

i remember using synaptic on XDSL (the XBOX fork of DSL) and having to install it via aptitude. of course you still have to make sure that apt-get is enabled using the configuration program.

well if compiz is the inbuilt ubuntu one I couldn't get it to work either but beryl worked for me..... you do have to play around a bit in the options you know to get it working properly and add it to your boot program list for start-up activation

compiz isn't built into ubuntu, that might explain why it didn't work
