    Don't forget to remove these drivers again

    sudo apt-get purge fglrx*

    i removed the drivers, downloaded the 2 files and ran the commands but still no effects!
    There must be something missing because minimizing and maximizing windows is now smooth and lag is gone.

    the compiz effects (wobbly and stuff like that). does that mean there's something wrong with compiz or is it again a graphcs card issue?

    These effects do not work with default desktop environment - unity.
    Or you need to tweak a lot.
    The driver works well? That's good. But regarding effects on unity, I tried to set them up too, but failed. It is possible, but no real need to dig deep.

    If you try another DE, like gnome3, kde, etc, effects may work.

    i got gnome 3 installed, and they still don't work. gnome compatibility is checked in compiz so is openGL and the effects.

    Do you really need effects? Compiz is developed by Canonical now for unity interface. Not by community as before for general purpose. I also would like to see effects for fun, and I know that I can get them working. But I am too lazy for that.

    Your graphics card works now as it can. New xorg is much better, but AMD does not want to support it. So there is nothing to improve with this hardware.

    You can somehow setup effects, but it is not for beginners section.
