Thread: Change desktop cube to different shape

    Default Change desktop cube to different shape

    Hello, I am wondering how to change the shape of the desktop cube to the sphere or cylinder? I was looking at the Compiz screen shots and would like to try that out. I looked through the forums here and was unable to find anything. Thanks!

    have you tried looking through the compiz settings manager? Type ccsm in console and browse through the settings.

    sideshow,

    > ccsm under the 'deformation' section


    In ccsm click Effects on the left side the click the
    Cube Reflection and Deformation on the right side.
    The settings you're looking for are under the Deformation tab.

    sideshow & v
    Thanks a lot for the tip. When I looked at the Effects section in ccsm, I could not find the options you mentioned. So I went here: Compiz Fusion - openSUSE
    and did a reinstall basically. Now I can see the Cube Deformation option and a whole lot more which I did not see initially.

    Now I have enabled the necessary options, but am not sure how to switch from the cube to the sphere (which is what I selected). I am still seeing the cube. Any ideas?

    Cube Reflection and Deformation on the right side.
    The settings you're looking for are under the Deformation tab.
