Compiz fusion icon and Ubuntu 9.04

I tested Compiz fusion on my Ubuntu 9.04 it was awesome.
Ctrl+Left Arrow gives a cube rotating.

To be able to do this on your Ubuntu 9.04 machine

sudo apt-get install simple-ccsm
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

 System - Preferences - CompizConfig Settings Manager

You may need to install fusion-icon from 
System->Preferences->Synaptics Package manager 

then type ccsm on command prompt 
you should get a screen.

Which will ask you preferences for your Desktop background.
You should get such a window

and then go to General in the window select 
General options -> Desktop Size and increase the number of desktops to 4.
Or what ever you wish 
Ctrl+Alt+Left Arrow should give you effect which you can see on my laptop here

Awesome effect.My laptop is Dell Insprion no hi fi graphics and it works cool.

Now to be able to see cube caps

System-->Preferences-->CompizConfig Settings Manager
|------->General Options--->Desktop Size tab
|-->Horizontal Virtual Size (4 )
|-->Vertical Virtual Size (1)
|-->Number of Desktops (1)

Then to be able to rotate and see cube you need

Ctrl+Alt+Left Click +Drag mouse

Ctrl+Alt+Left Arrow/Right Arrow will switch cube surfaces.

How it looks on my laptop when I press

Ctrl+Alt+Left Click +Drag mouse
