    Re: Visual Effects do not work on my ibook g4

    Most of compiz worked on my Ibook in distros past. I didn't like it's resource usage or feel that it was needed so I think since 8.04 I have removed all the programs related to it. Thus I don't know how it does in 9.04. You have enabled it under desktop effects? As I remember I could never get them all but got quite a few.

    Just a thought but i would make sure you are using the nvida, if that's what you have, drivers. After installing 9.04 on my macbook pro i was not able to use visual effects until i used nvida's driver.

    I am having similar problems on my PowerBook G4.

    I'm going to investigate this route, when I find a minute:
