If you have the Workspace Switcher in the bottom right of the desktop (to add, rt click, Add to Panel, Workspace Switcher), right click, select Properties, and change number of workspaces from 2 to 4.

In compiz (System, Preferences, Compiz Config Settings - if installed), General, Desktop Size, Horizontal Virtual Size, 4.

Drs is right. Set the virtual desktops in compiz settings manager to 4 (under general options- desktop size). Alternately, you can set that number to 3 for a triangle box, 5 for a pentagon box, and up, and so on.

Hi Godus

There are a bunch of fun settings with it too, like hiding gears inside the box, etc.

You may or may not know this already, but if you hold down your CTRL and ALT key while holding down your left mouse button, the CUBE will Shrink down and you can spin it all directions.

Other settings allow you to see layered windows if you have more than one window open on one of the screens.

Having different workspaces I can keep open has been a real boon to my getting my work done faster.
And having this CUBE Effect is totally AWESOME when the DOZE users are leaning over my shoulder too!
Totally BLOWS EM AWAY!

But that's about the only thing I use it for, to harass Doze users, hi hi.........
