Then configuring Compiz is something I'm not going to explain in detail either. The short version is:
Then go to system > preferences > appearance > visual effects > custom
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
In the preferences enable the 3D cube and cube rotation plugins, configure them as you see fit.
If you've seen my video, you may have noticed I have different wallpapers on different sides of the cube. This is something normally not supported, but there are ways to achieve it.
First, let me say I just bumped into this tutorial:
I have not tried this yet, and it does look tricky and intimidating, but feel free to give it a try and let me know if it worked.
The method I used is far simpeler, but does have a drawback: you loose your desktop icons. If you don't mind that, then all you have to do is first disable nautilus painting the desktop. In a terminal type:
gconf-editorBrowse to apps > nautilus > preferences > show_desktop and unselect it.
Next, we define the wallpapers in Compiz setting manager.
Go to Desktop Cube > Appearance
And in background images add the ones you want:
As you can not see :) I used 3x the ubuntudragon, and 1x the windowsdragon wallpaper for the 4 sides of my cube.
If you liked the one's I used, you can download them from here:
Launching of VirtualBox
An easy way to launch VirtualBox is creating a starter on your panel (right click on it > add to panel > custom launcher) , or even adding it in your session list if you want to start it automatically each session. The command to use is simply:
VBoxManage startvm name_of_your_virtual machineThat's all follks!
