    3D Desktop

    I have activated the 3D desktop on Mandriva, but I am unsure as to how to use it. My display is still 2D and I can't find any info on how to make it a cube (3D). I'm guessing that there is a keyboard shortcut key that i need to press to switch to '3D view', but I just don't know what it could be?

    To spin the cube hold down CTRL+ALT and then click and drag.
    Did you install beryl or compiz ?
    For a list of shortcuts in Beryl look at the plugin options in Beryl Settings Manager(you can also change them).
    For some Compiz shortcuts check this out

    Arrow Not able to do anything!

    Hi all,

    I tried to install compiz but I still have a 2D desktop. No shortcuts are working.

    I choosed to use AIGLX because XGL jammed the desktop and it was hard for me to recover.

    I have an old 32MB Nvidia GeForce 2 and i supposed it was enough to drive the 3D desktop. The fact is, if i try to launch compiz in console, i get always the folllowing messages:

    compiz: Another window manager is already running on screen: 0
    compiz: No managable screens found on display :0.0

    Which kind of window manager is running?

    Thank you in advance for any suggestion...
