    What distro are you using? Where did you download the plugin from? What version of compiz?

    I'm guessing you downloading the source code using git?

    This guide gives a general idea of how to install compiz plugins in Ubuntu using git. The process will generally be the same in any distro, but how to get the necessary development packages will differ.

    Hi

    Yes.. But for some reason when i download the throw plug in, it has 3 files in there...The is no files i can ./configure or make...So i downloaded Elements from the site u gave me to try it..And it worked fine..I think there is something wrong with the throw plug in..
    The files i get are cmakelists.txt, throw.xml.in and src draw that contains throw.cpp and throw.h
    Nothing like what i downloaded from the site u gave me...

    Ah, it appears to be using a different program, called cmake, to build the binaries.

    I'm not too familiar with cmake. You'll need to download the package for Ubuntu, and then the general process is something like (assuming you're in the source directory)
    Code:
    cmake .
    make
    sudo make install
