Because of this, Gnome Shell users pretty much don't have any way of using Compiz-Fusion effects in Gnome Shell, which means no desktop cube for now . However, I'm sure it'll only be a matter of time before someone codes together some Compiz-Fusion-style extensions for Shell.

To get this going: go to software center and install cairo-dock core and run it from the desktop you are in.
Now log out and click the icon from where it lets you choose your desktop - you should see an option for cairo-dock(gnome+effects) log into it.
Now you can install compiz and your favorite effects.
