Compiz Screenshot in Cinnamonview story

Compiz burn effect gone in 12.10?view story

http://askubuntu.com – It's a small thing, but I like it when windows burst into flames when I close them. I've been using this effect in compiz for ages in Gnome Ultimate (aka Gnome Classic). After installing 12.10, not only has this effect seemingly been disabled, it seems that the extra animations and effects that support it aren't even available. (HowTos)

How to switch desktop wall choice without pressing enter?view story

http://askubuntu.com – In older versions of Ubuntu with Compiz, I liked using Super + arrow key (up, down, left, right) to immediately go to a different desktop wall.

unity 12.04 full screenview story

http://askubuntu.com – If I set a shortcut to 'toggle fullscreen mode' in settings->keyboard->shortcuts->windows->toggle fullscreen mode, the shortcut works in unity 2D, but not unity 3D. The same shortcut can be modified with compiz extras, and the result is the same. Why is this, is it normal, and how to go to fullscreen mode in unity 3D ? (HowTos)
