No Compiz

After all the shit I went through to get my machine back up an runnign itilll fall into snags. grrrr…

I’m installing xgl/compiz so i do….. sudo apt-get install xserver-xgl compiz-gnome cgwd cgwd-themes csm I end up with:

Package cgwd is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package cgwd has no installation cadidate

for cgwd cgwd-themes and also csm . I’m here scouring the net to find out what is wrong, bad repos, typo, etc. Trust me i’ve been looking for a good 2 hours now…. nada!!!!! I even got the deb files and tried to install those…. nada once again.
In the back of my head i was thinking about beryl and it’s upcoming release date?!?! That maybe since beryl’s release will be soon they are doing something to the repos…. SO SAID SO DONE!!! I headed over to them irc channel #ubuntu-xgl on irc.freenode.net and DBO answered my question here is a snippet of the convo:

<[Yatta]> quick question is csm still in the repos???
<[Yatta]> i get E: Package csm has no installation candidate
<DBO> no its not
<nanotaboada> i endorse Yatta’s question since i’m trying to install xgl/compiz on dapper without much luck
<[Yatta]> i get compiz-gnome
<[Yatta]> but nothing else
<DBO> well the short answer is just wait for beryl to be released…
<DBO> it wont be long… hopefully…

Sooo after a few hours of searching what did a accomplish????? A flippin headache!!!!!!!
