Work well on mint 18.3, cinnamon 3.6.6 on single screen. When in dual screen, the effect is not as a cube, but it does flip. Effect is amazing when finding right parameters. Thanks a lot :) Robert Graphics is Radeon Sapphyre 280x on intel 12 cores.

Looks nice, except that my desktop background is also the background behind the cube, which doesn't look good at all. If this could either be black, or a user-defined background instead, it would be much better.

Hello, Can't get it to work on Fedora 28 with Cinnamon 3.8.2, kernel 4.16.11-300.fc28.x86_64, CPU: Intel© Core™ i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz × 4, RAM: 16GB, graphic card 1: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller, graphic card 2: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 540M]. I did all the suggestions below but no luck. Do you guys have a clue why it is not working? Much appreciated.

I use LMDE 2 Cinnamon 64-bit version 3.4.6 and It's working right for me! Remember: Ctrl+Alt+Right (arrow) to go to the next workspace or Ctrl+Alt+Left (arrow) to go to the previous workspace :-)

To make this extension working on Cinnamon 3.6 (Mint 18.3): * open ~/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions/DesktopCube@yare/metadata.json * change "3.4" by "3.4", "3.6" * save this file and reload Cinnamon (Ctrl-Alt-Esc)

It's working well on Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya. Remember to create two workspaces or more to get the cube display.

It's working good for me on Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya. Question: Is there a way to get rid of the background wallpaper when the cube is rotating, like you have in your sample picture above? In mine, the wallpaper background is still showing when the cube rotates. Thanks! :)

Extension is working. There is a bug of double panels while switching workspaces. It would be nice to be able to have more options on the cube backgrounds, front and behind cube.

I tried it and it does work in cinnamon 18.2. However, a glitched applet bar appears at the top of the cube while switching so it may still need more work. But great job nonetheless!

Hi! I saw your comment about the cube working in 18.2 so i downloaded & installed too , but i haven't yet figured how to trigger it ! Furthermore , can it be triggered with the mouse as in compiz? And, is there some kind of guide available for the damn thing at all ? thx in advance!

You use Ctrl+Alt+Right (arrow) to go to the next workspace or Ctrl+Alt+Left (arrow) to go to the previous workspace. It would be nice if it looked more like the Compiz cube though.

Sadly it no longer works on the newest versions of Cinnamon. I would really love to get this working again!

My system says this extension isn't compatible with the latest version of Cinnamon. A shame! (I could have tried out the extension anyway, but I didn't.)
