Actually, now that I play with the cube I can tell that those pictures were probably taken in mid-rotation. You can't actually have the entire cube, sitting in the skydome visible without rotating, can you?

Great. You're going in the right direction now.

To get the skydome effect you need to first set a background image.

Then you need to "square off" the cube by enabling cube caps in ccms. I think it only accepts .png image files, so if there are any images you'd like to use convert them in the Gimp to .png first.

I have to admit that the interface is a bit clumsy at this stage, for there are still a few bugs in ccms, but persevere.

Compiz is great, but the next step should be an effects preview box.
