    Re: Compiz-Check -- no more "Desktop effects could not be enabled"

    Also firefox scrolls SUPER SLOWLY and JUMPY. The same effect happens when I drag a window around the workspace. Do you have any ideas about this problem? I installed the ATI driver via envyNG, and it has been running great the past month until now.

    Your graphics driver is obviously not installed correctly.

    Your graphics chip too, is not properly installed.
    I don't know how you all tried to install it, but it obviously failed.

     The vesa driver is not capable of running Compiz, you need to install
     the proper driver for your graphics card.

    Yeah sorry, you have the exact same symptoms as "veganbikepunk", so I did't found it necessary to address you too.

    Your driver is not installed/set up correctly. I always stick to the driver provided by Ubuntu, so I never have such problems.

    Try un-installing it, then run
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    Afterwards reboot and install the driver again.

    Didn't it ask you to look for a proprietary driver?

    Is there anything listed in System → Administration → Hardware Drivers

    I'm sorry, what are you talking about, exactly?
