Compiz Fusion - the merge of Compiz and Beryl

What is Compiz Fusion?
Compiz Fusion is an extension of the Compiz compositing window manager for the X Window System. It was created from the remerging of Beryl into Compiz. It aims to port almost all of the features of Beryl to Compiz plugins, and continue to improve Compiz's core functionality.

Instructions are in there. Ubuntu users may want to check Ubuntu Forum for more info. Click here for a start.
