That Ubuntu has intalled Beryl, which is an old Open GL Window Manager, with many 3d effects. Compiz Fusion is the new 3d Window Manager, so I'll suggest you use that. You'll need to configure it and set the effects according to your needs. See the following links to Install and set different effects in your Ubuntu with Compiz Fusion:
