So this may not happen to everyone but when I go to change the appearance my CPU spikes to 100% so here's what I did....

First I go to System-->Preferences-->Startup Applications
and tick off yarrsr, copy, copy agent
save, exit

Ctrl+Alt+F1
Login
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge yarssr

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kdm

Choose KDM when prompted

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install geany

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install compiz

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins compizconfig-settings-manager

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install qtcurve

Code: Select all
sudo reboot


Login to Mate in Session Manager

Go to System-->Preferences-->CompizConfig Settings Manager
Go to General Options-->Desktop Size-->Horizontal Virtual Size, change to 4, go back
Go to Effects, Check Window Decorations, Wobbly Windows(Agree to whatever to get Wobbly)
Go to Desktop, Click on Desktop Cube(Agree to whatever, Bob Loblaw)

Open Terminal
Code: Select all
gsettings set org.mate.session.required-components windowmanager compiz

Code: Select all
sudo reboot


Log into Kubuntu
Go to System Settings-->Desktop Effects-->Compositing Type, change to OpenGL 1.2
Go to System Settings-->Workspace Behavior-->Virtual Desktops-->Number of Desktops, change to 4, check different widgets, cli9ck on switching, set to Desktop Cube Animation, Click Wrench, Change Rotation Duration to 1000 ms

Right Click Desktop and Unlock Widgets if locked
