I can wobble a window and that's all.

You missunderstand me - 3d desktop is enabled, if I select the 2nd, 3rd desktop it revolves - I just dont know how to control anything beyond that, like control the 3d cube.

in the settings is where you set things up and it shows you all your key bindings, so if you want to know how to do a particular thing you check it's key bindings - you can also enable and disable plugins in the settings

to use the 3d cube by default hold control and alt and then click the mouse and move it around. you can change settings and bindings with the compiz fusion control panel,
