the 3D cube

Asked by Christoph Schwaeppe on 2005-09-16

  I don't if here is the write place to ask about this: the cube doesn't rotate to the top and bottom faces and when I type compiz in the terminal, it gives this output:

compiz

Well, if you want to learn some more about the technology behind it, some of the technical details, I would suggest that you started here https://wiki.launchpad.canonical.com/. This is the launchpad wiki web site and has general introductry stuff and even more detailed information.

Notice on that front page, the section with:
WhatIsTheLaunchpad
LaunchpadGlossary
LaunchpadTechnologyOverview
LaunchpadArchitectureOverview

This should provide some answers. I hope this helps.

Thanks a lot!
