Im not that savy much in ubuntu.
Im using ubuntustudio 8.10..
I want to install Compiz thing effect.
How do i install that?

I search in google then i found one instruction installing
on it. but still wont work for a cube thing.
There is a little effect working on it but its just only
an effect of minimizing a taskbar.

My goal is want to have a cube effect. How do enable this out?
Or i dont know how have a compiz effects.

Kyme, been using simple Ubuntu so far. But I believe if you enable in System>Preferences>Appearance the Visual Effects you will get Compiz running! I also have installed compizconfig package to manually configure Compiz effects.
Take care.

I already enable it in as a normal effect but it wont enable.
It says "Desktop effect could not enable"

How do i fix that too?

have you configured your video card correctly? maybe 3d rendering is not working

My problem begins when updated from 8.10 to 9.04.
Cube and special effects don't work anymore.
Anyway, thanks for your tip riza hylviu.
