Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Compiz doesn't work on Cinnamon. Cinnamon has it's own effects. If you want Compiz, it works on MATE or Xfce (though it is a bit of work to install and configure).

Should be. Install the package mint-meta-mata, then from the login screen switch your session from Cinnamon to MATE.
