If you right click the grid and then clikc on properties you will see 
how to edit the properies. Here you can adjust the shape of the grid, if 
you leave it on four it should make a cube, if youu change it to three 
then compiz will make a triangle. To get rid of the Pager (that's what 
the thing on your screen is called) just right click and "remove from 
panel." As far as why it is not makeing a cube at all, be sure you have 
a package called "ccsm" installed as it will allow you to make advanced 
changes to compiz. Check the settings in ccsm. mabey that will help.
