Here is the second part of our Compiz Fusion manual thingy, here we will show you how to enable the Desktop Cube and the Rotate Cube.
Open your CompizConfig Setting Manager press ALT+F2 or open your Terminal and type ccsm.
Getting the cube
Click on the General Options button and select the Desktop Size tab, and change the Horizontal Virtual Size from 2 to 4.
Click the Back button, then select the Desktop options.
Now you can switch desktops via [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Left]/[Right] or spin the cube: [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Left Mousebutton] – hold the mousebutton clicked, then move the mouse around.
Don’t bother to change the Rotate Cube settings because they are not that intresting. 🙂
Nice plugins are:
Viewport Switchers, to change desktops using your mousewheel.
Cube Caps, for images on top and bottom of the cube.
Cube Reflection, shows the cube on a glossy plane.
3D Windows, raises the cube while rotating.
