The "Wizard" plugin (for compiz) and instructions are available in the first post, here...
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=875597
you will have to create an account to be able to download the wizard plugin.

the actual plugin link is:
http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=79572&d=1217479560
but like I said you need to be a forum member to download.

once you've downloaded the wizard.tar.gz file, the installation instructions are:
Place the downloaded wizard.tar.gz fie in your home folder... then in a terminal:

Code: [Select]
cd ~
mkdir ~/wizard
tar -zvxf wizard.tar.gz -C ~/wizard
cd ~/wizard
make clean
make
sudo make install
(it enter after each line... last line will ask for password)

Now log off, and on again (or reboot), and the "Wizard" plugin will be available in your CompizConfig Settings Manager

UN-install instructions are available at the link above.

I don't use them but can see no harm... give it a try, you can always uninstall it or turn it off in compizconfig settings manager
