I'm trying to install simple-ccsm 0.8.2-0ubuntu1 in Natty Narwhal, but I receive an error:

 Depends: python-compizconfig but it is not going to be installed
 Depends: compizconfig-settings-manager but it is not going to be installed

Ubuntu 11.04 uses the new Compiz 0.9. This is quite a significant change, and simple-ccsm simply hasn't been updated yet.

Bug #738168 has been reported on Launchpad.

Correct, I was just looking at that article. I believe CCSM is at v0.9, and Simple-CCSM is at V0.82. Hopefully they can update soon! – Alan Apr 30 '11 at 15:47

The problem is that Simple CompizConfig Settings Manager (aka, Simple-CCSM.) is not currently up-to-date with the latest release of CompizConfig Settings Manager. Unfortunately, it is not clear when a new update will be released to the public.

Try installing the regular compiz settings manager:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

It will show in the System Settings
