3D Windows, Cube Atlantis and more effects for Compiz Fusion on Ubuntu Feisty


When I looked at others screenshot posted on the web I noticed that some have window float off the cube when rotating. I love it and looking for what effect to do like that. Someone on ubuntuforums said "just enable 3D windows effect" but my "compizconfig setting manager" didn't has that effect to enable :(. or others said "it's for beryl only" that hard to believe. I try to search for plugin package and found that I miss two of four plugins packages, unofficial and unsupported[on tuxfamily.org]. Pick the leftover packages.

As you see pic on the right, now in my "CompizConfig Setting Manager" two more effects are added, 3D Windows and Cube Atlantis. Actually it has more added to other section but I can not remember which one are new.
