What do you mean by "compiz/theme"?

You dont install anything under "System / Preferences / Apperance". You just activate the effects there.

What graphicscard are you using? And do you have the driver correct installed and working?

To determine your graphics card, run this command from the terminal:

lspci | grep VGA

To check if you have direct rendering:

glxinfo | grep direct
