    Compiz and Xgl install


    Hey there

    Well I'm just trying to install Compiz and Xgl and stuff to get the nice cube desktop and cute effects. I found many "walkthrough" and that seem quite easy to do. The thing is, I have a problem with like one of the first steps. Whenever I try to install Xgl or Compiz package, it says the package cannot be found.
    For instance, if I use that command, which everyone seems to agree works perfectly, it says that compiz package cannot be found. If I take out the compiz part, it says xserver-xgl cannot be found :

    sudo apt-get install compiz xserver-xgl libgl1-mesa xserver-xorg libglitz-glx1 compiz-gnome

    What is it, what am I doing wrong? I have the latest Nvidia drivers and Opengl works.

    Oh I have Ubuntu 6.06

    Did you add the beerorkid repositories to /etc/apt/sources.list

    Code:
    deb http://www.beerorkid.com/automatix/apt dapper main
    deb http://www.beerorkid.com/compiz/ dapper main
    deb http://xgl.compiz.info/ dapper main
