Ubuntu Compiz on a Laptop


Im still new to Linux, just a few days ago I installed Ubuntu 8.10, and just yesterday got wifi working on it thanks to all the help from you guys. Today I installed Compiz because I saw the effects on youtube. The only thing I cant figure out is how to shrink the 3d cube. Ive done ctrl alt right, and it just switches desktops, but I cant get the small cube with the gears rendered in it. Im using a laptop so I have no middle mouse button.
