    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
