http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I recently updated my PC, included in said upgrade was a Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 560 Ti video card, unfortunately I now find myself unable to turn on even basic level desktop effects let alone start compiz. When I first booted after upgrading I found myself at CLI and unable to startx due to problems with the nvidia drivers, I ended up downloading and installing the driver from nvidia's site and am booting into the desktop at full resolution but am unable to turn on any level of effects. Normally I have been able to fix this by activating drivers from the "Additional Drivers&quo (Hardware)
