First, you will have to ensure that a 3d accelerated video driver is installed. You can check what is available by going to System, Administration, Hardware Drivers.
Second, turn on the desktop effects: System Preferences, Appearance, click on Visual Effects tab. Turn on either Normal or Extra.
Third. You need to install the extra eye candy components of compiz
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
Then make adjustments from System, Preferences, CompizConfig Settings Manager.
To spin the cube, by default, hold down CTRL-ALT and then click on the left mouse button and then move the mouse to spin the cube.
