Thanks to Arslan S. for:

Comments:       This is OpenGL Desktop based on compiz.

Before proceeding you need to setup hardware accelerated GLX (i.e. nvidia-glx, ati-fglrx)
if you don't have it already.

Installation:
1-) Install gconf schemas:
sudo update-gconf-database register-all
2-) Add to backup (/opt/.filetool.lst)
usr/local/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/%gconf-tree.xml

I have setup compiz with some plugins loaded by default
and intentionally left all remaining plugin selection to you.

You can select plugins with compizconfig settings manager (ccsm).

My plugin recommendations:
---------------------------------------
Rotate Cube or Wall
Ring Switcher or Shift Switcher
Expo
---------------------------------------

Important note: Keybindings may not be working when you are just logged into X session.
Restarting window manager solves this issue. You can restart compiz by executing the command "compiz".

This extension is PPI compatible.

Comments:       This is OpenGL Desktop based on GNOME and Compiz.

Before proceeding you need to setup hardware accelerated GLX (i.e. nvidia-glx, ati-fglrx)
if you don't have it already.

Installation:
-------------------------------
Step-1) Set root and tc/user password
sudo passwd root
sudo passwd tc
# passwords can also be set by boot code "secure"
Step-2) Install gconf schemas
# Execute once
sudo update-gconf-database register-all
Step-3) Add to backup list (/opt/.filetool.lst)
usr/local/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/%gconf-tree.xml
etc/shadow
Step-4) Open gconf-editor, go to desktop->gnome->session->required_components
and set "windowmanager" key value to "compiz", This is graphical way. If you prefer command line:
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager --type=string compiz
(don't run this as root)

Note: If you have gnome-desktop-base setup already then skip Step-1 and Step-3 (do not skip Step-2 !)

I have setup compiz with some plugins loaded by default
and intentionally left all remaining plugin selection to you.

Comments:       "Compiz is an OpenGL compositing manager that use GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap
for binding redirected top-level windows to texture objects. It has a flexible
plug-in system and it is designed to run well on most graphics hardware."
