I was so happy to see this forum post!

I couldn't find any documentation on how to install the 3D related software that has been put back into gNewSense, including things like Compiz Fusion. Anyone who has had success with that, could you please post about it?

The software was reintegrated by update manager.

In order to use  3D applications like compiz or some 3d game, your hardware (video card) needs free drivers for 3D acceleration.
Intel video cards, and some ati has them.

If you're using nVidia, AFAIK there is no 3d acceleration free drivers (nuoveau is still on very early development stage), therefor is not possible to use.
Remember that gNewSense is based on free software only.

I am using gNewSense 2.1.

gNewSense comes with  compiz as default, as ubuntu hardy does, so it should be working without any setup (unless you disable it).

Thank you so much!

Good luck!
