[SOLVED] Desktop effects could not be enabled

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm not sure what happened, desktop effects was working after a fresh install of Jaunty (fading windows, etc). All I did before it quit working, is switch to proprietary nVidia drivers (by System > Administration > Hardware Drivers), then attempt to enable "Extra" desktop effects, too see if it was really worthwhile (I don't like eye candy to be real bloated, but figured I may as well check it out). So it said "Desktop effects could not be enabled". So, fine, I thought, as I went to put normal desktop effects back on. Now they will not turn on either, giving the same error. I do have direct rendering, AWN and Docky work great, and glxgears returns >2000fps. My video card is an nVida EVGA geForce 9400 GT 1GB VRAM, and I am using driver version 180. Here is my xorg.conf Quote: # <--Some comments I erased Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" DefaultDepth 24 EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" Driver "nvidia" Option "NoLogo" "True" EndSection (Hardware)
