Hello,

I have installed Jaunty Jackalope on my laptop and until now I am very satisfied with it. There is one problem that bothers me though and that is that I am unable to use Compiz. After using Google I have read that I have to install the right drivers. Using the command line I have found the following details:

antoine@antoine-laptop:~$ lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 661/741/760 PCI/AGP or 662/761Gx PCIE VGA Display Adapter
antoine@antoine-laptop:~$ X -version
