Sorry, that should be:
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

You can use your TAB (↹) key for auto completion. Enter the first part of  
the name and then hit TAB twice to get a list of possible names or, if  
only one name is possible, just hit TAB once and it will be completed  

Or just paste the line above into the terminal.

Kind regards
