How to correctly enable Desktop Cube in Unity 3D

Hey guys i am using ubuntu 11.10 and i have been using ubuntu for about 6 months now, i saw in a few videos about ubuntu and found out about some type of cube and it happened to be Compiz shifter which made that cube thing. I have been searching for a loooooooong time and never found out how to install compiz shifter. Please guys teach me how to install compiz shifter in my ubuntu. (i dont have a graphic card)if i cant install it without a graphic card, shouldnt i be able to install it in another way?? Oh come on!! I would love to have that in my ubuntu. (if i need to do some changes tell me cause i am a c++ programmer and i might be able to edit a few things)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
The first thing to do is to determine if you are speaking of either: a) shift switcher b) desktop cube an example of the shift switcher: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH3L_Ed2LRE and if you think it is the Desktop Cube I would refer to this askubuntu.com/questions/83345/compiz-desktop-cube-problem –  l300lvl Mar 7 '12 at 16:52

What type of integrated graphics care you using? You can likely get it to work no problem but will be very slow. Anyways, here's a quick guide (Skip the Nvidia card stuff if you don't have one, other steps still apply)
