Using Hardy Heron I installed the Compiz Fusion Icon from add remove which then appeared under system tools. Click on the icon and you will see it next to the network icon at the top of the screen. Left click on the icon and it will open a menu - top of the menu is 'settings manager' and with settings manager open you will have a long long list of icons describing all the various effects possible. Enable the ones you want with a tick, and then with the cube enabled hold down Ctl/Alt and either use the left and right arrow keys OR hold the left mouse button down and drag the desktop to the next face. Make sure you have at least 4 workspaces enabled (look bottom right), but I usually use 8 in order to switch quickly from one application to another. After you have enabled this it will remain the default when you boot up, until you change it through the Compiz Icon.
