I cannot change the behavior of Alt-tab. It only shows icons, not miniatures. I can change key-bindings in Compiz config, but not the behavior. Also, Ring Switcher, Shift switcher etc. does not appear.

In the Static Application Switcher CCSM settings, there is an option to show/hide icon and to see the miniature screen.
