Enable This Cool 3D Cube Desktop Effect on Ubuntu 21.10

Filed under

Now the 3D cube effect is back thanks to Simon Schneegans (of GNOME Pie/Fly Pie fame). Much like the original Compiz cube it’s inspired by, this marvellous re-make isn’t masquerading under any pretence. The GitHub project description even states: “indulge in nostalgia with useless 3D effects”.

Fancy giving it a go?

This 3D Cube GNOME extension requires GNOME 40 or above. So to use the Desktop Cube GNOME extension on Ubuntu you need to be using Ubuntu 21.10 or later (or a Linux distribution with GNOME 40 or above).

The add-on also requires the default horizontal workspace switcher to be present, so be sure to disable any workspace-altering extensions prior to this one.

5 Best Free and Open Source Subtitle Downloaders

A subtitle is a text representation of the dialogue, narration, music, or sound effects in a video file. Subtitles are available in multiple formats. Subtitles can literally make the difference between being immersed in a movie or only watching the screen, trying to keep up with developments.
