compizconfig-setting-manager by default

Registered by José Luis Ricón on 2007-09-07

Currently, you can choose between 3 options: No effects, Main plugins and extra plugins. You cannot choose the specific settings for each plugin through a simple interface (you need to use Gconf). I propose to add an "Advanced settings..." button to Desktop effects tab and link that button to compizconfig-setting-manager, the best tool to configurate compiz. The emerad theme manager should be included here too.

This has been partially implemented: if you install compizconf, you will get the button.
Now we need compizconf by default.

Default inclusion of compizconfig-settings-manager has been discussed on Ubuntuforums.org and the idea met with great approval - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=581491
