I am using Macbook Pro with OS Lion. I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my VMWare Fusion 4.1.0. I am wondering is there any way to activate the compiz / 3d.

I am new here and I really want to use Ubuntu 11.10 with my Mac OS X Lion VMWare Fusion.

3D acceleration is possible since a few days. The xf86-video-vmware driver was announced at the beginning of March 2012. It needs a specific kernel module which is available since Linux 3.2. If you try Ubuntu 12.04 LTS all of those software will be available to you. The site vmware3d in the wiki has some more information.
