I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 as virtual machine within Mac.
I have installed VM tools.
The approach in this link of
Compizconfig Grid, which worked in my previous laptop where Ubuntu was not a virtual machine, does not work anymore. I set some shortcut, but no action is launched...

The major functionality I need from
Grid is tiling windows to left/right side of the screen... Does anyone know any alternative?

Grid or tiling problem above.
Edit2 & 3: I didn't know that Unity2D does not use compiz by default... After installing
gtk2-engines-pixbuf, I launched
compiz --replace &in a terminal, that gives:

compiz --replace &), the shortcut always has an effect...
Edit 4: I just enabled
Accelerate 3D Graphics, which was disabled before... But rerunning
compiz --replace & in a terminal gives exactly same message as before including 2
