I've installed Ubuntu Studio, and includes XFCE4. I've installed Compiz, but don't know how to use it.

Can I use Compiz?

You could try to replace xfwm4 (xfce windows manager) with compiz by open a terminal and type compiz --replace – Arch user May 18 '13 at 8:46

Based on Ubuntu's comment, it is possible to use/run compiz by typing in terminal: compiz --replace

But how to make Ubuntu Studio use Compiz by default, rather than having to manually run compiz --replace in each session? – Eliah Kagan Sep 7 '13 at 4:20
