Hey gang, quick question. Since I loaded UE 2 I can no longer use desktop effects. I am using an ATI card that worked perfectly with Hardy, but will not work with Intrepid. Any ideas? I have used proprietary and restricted drivers with no luck. Any help will be appreciated.

I have an ATI Radion 9000 and using these instructions I got Compiz working OK in Hardy. Its Bizarre that when I upgraded to Intrepid on the same laptop, I didn't have to do anything to get Compiz to work.

I am using the Open Source drivers for my graphics card BTW.

Good luck.
