what exactly do you want - "visual effects"? You mean a cube or something? Did you see it on youtube?

I think what you're after is compiz and there's threads for that. But could you explain a little bit better? No one can help you if you don't make any sense.

Whats your Graphics card?
Also, post the output of:

compiz --replace &
..at a terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal)

Go to System>Settings>Appearance and then to Visual Effects tab, and put to extra. If it works install "Advanced Desktop Effects Settings" from synaptic to get more options (it will show at System>settings).
