    Hello all, I want to have something like unity expo button in docky, but I dont know how to specifically run compiz plugins in terminal.

    Is it possible to do so?

    Yes it is possible.
    Activate the dbus plugin in compizconfig manager and create a script:

    dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.freedesktop.compiz /org/freedesktop/compiz/expo/screen0/expo_edge org.freedesktop.compiz.activate string:'root' int32:`xwininfo -root | grep id: | awk '{ print $4 }'`
