You should be installing with the Ubuntu packages for Compiz-Fusion. You can get them through apt-get like any other package.

The GUI tool for package management in Ubuntu is Synaptic. Use it.

Just run Synaptic, make sure to click the update button so it refreshes repository data, and then just search for Compiz, it will download and install Compiz along with the dependencies needed.

Compiz comes with the latest versions of Ubuntu, you just need to install the settings manager for it
