For some reason although Compiz comes as part of the default install, the 'Advanced Desktop Effect Settings' will need to be downloaded manually to get the full effects. From you main menu select:

System - Preferences - Appearance - Visual Effects

As long as your graphics card has the correct drivers installed you can select normal or extra.

To get the 'Advanced Desktop Effect Settings' go to 'Ubuntu Software Centre' in the main menu and type Compiz in the search bar to find the relevant installs. Once installed you will have a new entry in menu:

System - Preferences - CompizConfig

Then you just need to play about with settings.

run the following command

1)"sudo apt-get install compiz-fusion"
this will install the required package you need

2)make sure you have installed proper drivers for your display before you install it.

3)then to enable 3d effects you have to run follwing command on your terminal "compiz --replace ccp" you have to go to system >> Preference >> appearance <visual effects tab> in that you need to check extra option.

4)For additional effects look for CCSM ( Compiz Setting Manager ) under your System >> Preference menu
