    Unhappy "Desktop Effects Could not be Enabled" Help!

    Hello,

    I have been using Ubuntu for a couple of months and I haven't really had any major problems until today,

    Im using Ubuntu 9.10 Beta release and its great. I've been using it a while with desktop effects working fine .Today I noticed that they had been disabled I tried to turn them on again and I see the screen flickering and then the error message appears "Desktop effects could not be enabled".

    I do not know what to do, Please post any ideas that you think might help.

    I'll put in the Output when i type "compiz" in the terminal (it might be useful to someone)

    Code:
    Checking for Xgl: not present. 
    xset q doesn't reveal the location of the log file. Using fallback /var/log/Xorg.0.log
