Compiz Fusion Cube Question


I got the latest Compiz Fusion (0.5). I used it before but for some reason I don't have a rotating cube. More like a flipping sheet of paper. I think it is probally becuase Ubuntu only gives you two Desktops to start and Compiz picked up on this. (Just a guess could be way off) I was wondering if there was a way to add Desktops? (Not workspaces Desktops. Adding Workspaces does nothing.) I search the settings in Compiz and don't see anything that could fix it.

They're called Viewports.

Start ccsm, go to General Options > Desktop Size (tab), you need to set it to have 4 desktops.
Then, in the Desktop section, disable Desktop Wall and enable Desktop Cube.

Thanks. Should have saw that. But stupid me never went into the General Options tab. Like they say, "Most problems aren't problems; just people being stupid."
