In classic GNOME2 desktop I could install Compiz and customize it with Compiz config settings manager so that clicking on a specific screen location allowed switching between open windows. With Unity can I do the same or Alt + Tab is the only option?

Compiz Config works under Unity and the Ring Switcher does work.

For ring switcher I am able to use Alt+Tab combination but right edge + mouse clicks(I configured it that way) did not work. What could be the reason? – Chethan S. Apr 29 '11 at 17:22
