tried in both but nothing works.wondering if they have a project going for something compatible?if compiz and its packages are of no use why are there some pre-installed?

Im running compiz on Mint 12 with gnome 3 shell, I'm even running the obsolete emerald theme manager. however im not running any of the default menus.

Not sure how or what Cairo-dock did, but after i installed cairo-dock, logged out and logged back in using the cairo-dock's log-in I could install compiz though synaptic manager. and have my wobbly windows and win7 emerald theme that i've used since Mint 6 :)

i'll be damned it works.
for anyone else who wants it here it is:
software manager and install cairo dock core
now log out and on that gear thing where you select what DE you want there should be an option now that says cairo dock gnome and effects.
select it log in and you have cube and all the other fun stuff with compiz
thanks a lot meece
