Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

Compiz cube not working on Mint Debian
I have previously got Compiz Cube work on Ubuntu 10.10, Fedora 14, and an older Linux Mint release I can't remember. I just made an HD install of Linux Mint Debian Edition, which by default uses Mate.
I tried doing Ctrl+Alt+RightArrow/Ctrl+Alt+LeftArrow, but it seems Compiz cube is not yet configured. So, I opened up Compiz Icon, which is installed by default on this Mint release. I right click on the icon, and it gave me the option to choose between Compiz and another one. I clicked something like 'reload desktop manager', which would reload Compiz. The result is that, Ctrl+Alt+RightArrow/Ctrl+Alt+LeftArrow would now make the cube work, but the GUI is messed up - title bars not shown and menu panels randomly gets hidden.
When you reboot the PC, everything goes back to normal, so I tried to update because I thought there might be a bug fix available, but to no avail.
So, may I please know what should be done first to make Compiz cube work? I was expecting that since it was installed by default, it should have been configured beforehand. Am I missing something here?
