I have had a lot of fun playing with compiz fusion in Linux. I really like the desktop cube feature especially with the transparency settings in place to where you can see all sides of your desktop cube. Unfortunately there is a problem and that is with the desktop icons.
I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu, and had customized some keyboard shortcuts before installing compiz settings manager. I enabled the cube setting, and followed the directions as per here: http://www.noobslab.com/2011/10/enable-compiz-desktop-cube-in-ubuntu.html
However, I come to find that I can't use my keyboard shortcuts to navigate with it for some reason.
