A quick Google search yields a a bunch of results showing how to enable the cube effect in Compiz, here's an article that has any additional download info you may need as well.

Hi al57, I use a ton of Compiz effects, and I've never seen brother cups mentioned. I checked SPM and no items for it are installed. What you can do is open Synaptic Package Manager, type brother cups in the search area, and uninstall any instances you find.

Not sure just how you went about it, so here's the starting procedure I've used - -

System/Preferences/Appearance/Visual effects, then select extra - just let it install what it says.

Then go System/Preferences and select Compizconfig-settings-manager ( CCSM ) to start enabling stuff. If it's not there, you need to install it from Synaptic Package Manager.

I know there is a ton of stuff about the cube that comes up when you Google it, so here is my favorite one I've saved. When I went through it I had to keep pausing the video to write down directions.

Don't get discouraged - - - once you get the basics set up you will have a ton of fun with Compiz. :thumbup2:
