Well, I loaded it up on the T30 that runs compiz just fine in Gnome. But
not exactly sure if it's running compiz correctly in kde4 - I can't seem
to get the desktops to cube & rotate etc. Turned on the desktop effects
in the kde4 menu, but those seem pretty limited compared to full compiz.
In any event, Alt-F2 is working.
