After installation is complete - go to Start -> System -> Compiz Fusion Icon and start it. Go with the right mouse button on it and start compiz.

You will need to install some additional libraries on your Linux system in order to run VirtualBox - in particular, you will need libxalan-c, libxerces-c and version 5 of libstdc++. How to install these will depend on the Linux distribution you are using. On gutsy a

sudo aptitude install virtualbox

is enough.
