    Cant Change Appearance O_o

    This is weird... I have an intel embedded 945G graphics card.
    Everything was fine... I installed Wine, emule, and some other programs...
    Then I added the extra effects on my desktop and it was working... so i decided to try the emerald themes.

    I installed everything (except beryl-manager) (cause i cant >_> if anyone shows me how tnx... (ubuntu 7.10)

    I managed to get the theme to work. I reboot my PC for updates n stuff and i didnt have the theme anymore, and whats worse, i cant even change my appearance now, evry time i click the extra effects button it tells me it cant change it.

    I didnt care, I installed cedega and installed Guild Wars. to my surprise it said I cant run the game because i have no 3D acceleration.

    Can someone show me how to turn on 3D acceleration on this graphics card?
    Can someone tell me how to fix the desktop effects thing???

    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    well when you were playing around, did you install packages for compiz or compiz fusion?
    There is a difference between the two and if you installed normal compiz stuff as opposed to stuff from compiz fusion then no wonder why you have issues.
    Tel us what you have installed and we might be able to help.

    yea, the themes may matter, though I thought compiz and compiz-fusion themes could be interchangeible (since compiz-fusion is just compiz and beryl to my understanding) and I have an embended intell 945gm and games run very choppily, have you been able to run guild wars atall before this screw up, if so, how was it?

    No, you have to use one or the other, if you install the compiz themes they will freak out compiz-fusion.
