I could have just looked at the output from apt-get. Running "sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-plugins-extra" also installs compiz-plugins. You also kind of alluded to this in your original answer. Thank you for being so comprehensive.

Also, sudo chmod -w /sys/module/snd_hda_intel/parameters/power_save_controller does not work to keep the file from being written to. Every time I restart my system the value is changed back to Y

Thanks for the update, but for power_save you need to echo 0 as echo N gives I/O error

Thanks, muru edited the article shortly after I asked this question. I tried to look this command up in the man page for sudo but couldn't figure out what -c does. I get the use of sh and why to use it to avoid the permissions error. Just don't understand the -c also that command only works for power_save_controller as it is a y/n file. For power_save I get sh: echo: I/O error. I need to use echo 0

Thanks, I think that completely answers my question. Just to confirm, if I want all the goodies I'm good to run 'apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-plugins compiz-plugins-extra' or is that redundant and I should just 'apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-plugins-extra' and that will include everything in compiz-plugins?

Found this: help.ubuntu.com/community/SyncEvolution and you need to include quotes so: sudo apt-add-repository "deb downloads.syncevolution.org/apt stable main"
