    Enable wobbly windows & desktop cube in ubuntu 12.04

    I upgraded to Lubuntu 12.04, and saw that wobbly windows didn't work and the desktop cube didn't rotate, can someone please tell me how to fix this?
    Thanks in advance!

    You have to enable them in compiz.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

    I installed the compiz settings manager and enabled them, but the title bar disappears and the wobbly windows don't work.

    Agreed. I tried this solution as well and still no wobble.

    I'm not sure, but you might need to enable nVidia drivers to enable wobbly windows and stuff like that. Be cause default drivers don't have 3D support. But as I said, not sure.

    Are the correct video drivers installed? If so then reinstall compriz and log back in.

    I show nothing in Additional Drivers which is where I suspect it ought to be found.

    Go to http://www.nvidia.com and download the correct graphics drivers from there.

    What graphic card do you have? If you have 6th series or higher you can just do this

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    And then enable it in additional drivers and then

    Code:
    sudo service lightdm restart
    or just reboot.

    My video card is on-board in a Dell Studio D540:
