I'm missing the cube. The desktop cube, that is. The one I had with compiz in 3.5.

Is it on the horizon with kde 4.1? If not, I noticed that compiz-fusion has an overlay (desktop-effects). But it seams like butter on the cake to use 4.1 with compiz-fusion? Should one instead switch back to kde 3.5 and add the pure compiz back there?

The cube is addictive... :)

In systemsettings (kcontrol) go to advanced -> session manager, and select compiz as WM. ;)

Excellent! :)

But, when I just put compiz, I get no window decorations. If I start manually using compiz-manager, I get emerald. But I'd like to stick with kde if possible.

kde doesn't have a cube effect yet, id say look for it in 4.1.2-ish (its not even in svn right now)
