    Okay. On the restricted device manager, it says that the driver is in use so that means that the driver is installed right?

    Yup, now try to go to appearence, visual effects, and try the "Extra effects":

    If it works, windows should be "wobbly"
    If it doesn't, windows will revert back to normal

    You were lucky, when I used 7.04 I had to hack the xorg.conf to get it running. Install the extra configuration:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
    Then you go to appearence, and set it to custom, and you can pretty much set anything you want there.

    Great it worked

    Also, mark your thread as solved.

    Whoa, this looks cooooooooooool!!! Wait, I have a problem. The screen resolution is set to 800x600, when I change it to 1280x1024, I don't see the whole screen, if I move the mouse to the sides of the screen then it moves to show the rest of the screen. That seems weird?

    Weird? Could you take a picture?

    Also, do ["Windows Key" + MouseWheel] to make sure you're not on the zoom plugin effect.

    Another possibility: If your screen has "auto-align", use it; my LCD has a little button on the back that auto adjusts the position.

    How do I take a picture? And no, I'm not on the zoom plugin.

    I pressed the auto-align button but nothing changed. Maybe I need to run the disc that came with it on Linux?

    "Impr Pant", look for "F12", the key on the right of it.

    Save it to the desktop, add it as an attachment here.

    For the record, there other hotkeys for compiz fusion (and gnome in general):
    (Ctrl+Alt)+Right/Left/Up/Down : Switch desktop
    Alt+Left_Mouse : Drag window from any position.
    Alt+Middle_Mouse : Resize window from any position

    Okay hold on, the window got stuck and started flickering and then I couldn't do anything, I had to restart. Thanks for the hotkey tips. I just discovered my mouse wheel flips the window.
