Thanks for the reply Tony...
   Tried reconfigure and still get the same result...Just checked my 
Sidux install and packages
installed are covered in Gutsy ..Only difference is Sidux is based on 
debian sid ....
Cannot understand why I cannot get it going in Ubi as I have tried 
Mepis, Pclinuxos and Slackware
on my other box and all run compiz ok...
