Here's how to morph your Desktop Cube into a sphere:\

Click to install CompizConfig Settings Manager ('apt:/compizconfig-settings-manager').

When you're done installing, open it in "System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager".

You need to enable three plugins: "Desktop Cube", "Rotate Cube" and "Cube Reflection and Deformation". When asked to resolve conflicts, please do so.

Click on the "Cube Reflection and Deformation" button. In the "Deformation" tab, set the "Deformation" value to "Sphere". You're all set. Use Ctrl+Alt+Right to see what you've done.

It's definitely me, Kenny Strawn. However, that said, I really have Ubuntu with a different desktop background. Nothing more.

Now all you need to do is go find yourself the appropriately split earth wallpaper and make yourself a globe.

Perhaps I shouldn't say this but I couldn't get over the fact he has a folder called LibencCrack and next to it is a picture of a girl .......

Must be just my dirty mind working overtime

that's pretty neat, even though it is probably only going to be cool when you show it to some one and it will only impress anyone for about 3 seconds.
but for those 3 seconds it is totally worth it

And the butterflies fly away
Noddin’ my head like yeah
Moving my hips like yeah

Yeah, a not quite spherical desktop with Hannah Montana photos, just what you want to make your computer productive, as if spinning cubes hadn't already owned all those other OS's which could only do stuff like run useful applications without crashing.

Don't you know that's the future man...

Just wait until someone finds out about Desktop Cylinder in Kwin. That's really something... I think Compiz has it too.

So Kenny I'm giving you your next mission: set your Compiz so that it will have Desktop Cylinder.
It increases productivity by twofold from Desktop Sphere...

You'd be surprised; people are still impressed when they see my desktop cylinder.

Speaking of which, I wanted to let the OP know that you can also make a cylinder in Compiz as well :)

lol I am sorry, but those just look something other than useful or neat.

I couldn't help but laugh out loud at the turd of a sphere you got there. Maybe that laughter was aided by the fact that a picture of Miley Cyrus was horribly stretched over it.

The cylinder looks a mite more useful or intuitive than the lop-sided raindrop, though.

Now, that, I can absolutely agree on. To tell you the truth, I felt disoriented when I first used that sphere type transition.
