view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I'm having some trouble running the Extra or Normal Settings in the Appearance/Visual effects setting on ubuntu 8.10 kernel 2.6.31-12. with an Intel GMA X4500HD. I get an error message that says "Desktop Effects could not be enabled." I'm trying to get compiz to run and avant dock does not seem to respond either without the Visual effects enabled. Anyone have a solution? Thanks in advance.. (Hardware)
