Oh, I forgot to link. Nice work, partner
I have some further good news: ShadowKyogre wants to host the .debs on his/her website! I'll email them tomorrow and they should be online not much later. I'll post a link and edit the guide when it's up!
This step should be added to the How To
$ sudo dpkg -i compiz-boxmenu_1.0_all.deb
Question - When you get to the tweak the compizconfig-settings-manager/ccsm section, should that be done in your current DE or should you login to the new Compiz DE to do it?
Last - Logging into the Compiz Standalone, I have no desktop, just a black screen after following these steps.. I have not done the ccsm tweaks yet, but I do not think that will be relevant...
Finally, I think it may be good to number your steps in this How To, but that is just me...
Everything done in ccsm, made sure everything was followed exactly, and I have no desktop... just a black screen and a mouse.. no right click, nada..
I have to tty1 and kill gdm to restart...
Willing to assist in whatever is needed..
One thing I want to note is that I just got compiz working on LMDE using an nvidia card. It required an older driver (173.xxx.xxx) in order to run.

I'm tracking testing with Linux Mint DE, but sid with #!. #! is using Intel, not NVidia.
Not sure why downgrading to 173 is a showstopper. It's easily installable.

Sitting now in a compiz-standalone session...
I need now to go back through and figure out this right click to get it to work, I have nothing for a right click or a ctrl space which is what I thought I setup
