http://www.linuxquestions.org – I'm currently running Ubuntu 10.10 on VMware. My computer has a NVidia 8800GT graphics card. I'm trying to activate the Desktop Effects but keep getting the following error message: "Desktop Effects could not be enabled" I'm very new to Linux so I'm still in the extreme learning phase. Could someone offer suggestions on how to get this to work? My goal is to get Compiz to work. I was able to download/install it but I don't think it's working because of the Desktop Effects issue I have. Thank you all to those who reply. I do appreciate the help. (HowTos)
