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.

I think what you are looking for is called "Desktop Cube". To enable it install compiz configuration manager (CCM) and compiz-plugins from the software center or with sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager and sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins.

open the program, a warning will pop up becouse it is a powerfull tool but it is also quite easy to brake the system. Now under Desktop check the boxes of Desktop Cube and Rotate Cube.selections

if you click the buttons you can go into the appearance (Desktop Cube) and behavior and key bindings (Rotate Cube).
