    Re: How are your cube?

    Hi,
    KDE has Kwin for 3d effects, and the cube is a part of it. The cube comes with Kubuntu but it's something that I noticed that never really gets talked about. It can be displayed by Ctrl+F11, but I have it set to Super+Z. I think the Compiz cube is a little more configurable though, but the Kwin cube isn't bad either.

    For Kubuntu or KDE users, you can configure it at:
    settings > Desktop Effects > All Effects > Desktop Cube (and Desktop Cube Animation)

    I have the cube, sort of. When I use ctl alt right or left the cube just flips but it stays really big....I can't get it "zoomed out" to see more than just one side.

    Try this to have more control over Compiz Fusion (desktop effects)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
    You need to adjust the "zoom" slider under the "rotate cube" button option. Also make sure you configure: General options, Desktop Size to be:
    Horizontal Virtual Size=4
    Vertical Virtual Size=1
    Number of desktops=1

    You might want the extra plugins as well.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion-plugins-extra
