Upgrade / Install Emerald through PPA, Natty Narwhal

As the current package of Emerald included in the official repos of Natty Narwhal doesn't work with the current version of Compiz, one has either to compile it oneself or use this PPA to upgrade/install it. Obviously, I recommend the latter.

Upgrade

To upgrade Emerald through this PPA, run these commands in the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:malteworld/compiz
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Installation

To install Emerald through this PPA, run these commands in the Terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:malteworld/compiz
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install emerald
