A few montsh back, after Ubuntu Hardy Heron was released and i ordered the disc, I installed it onto my computer, i was just messing artound with a coupld things and I got to a place where i could select and deselect certain visual effects. After a while, my computer started getting really slow so I uninstalled ubuntu. I just recently reinstalled it again, but I cannot find how i go tto that window to select the Visual effects. Can someone help me on this?

Right click on your desktop and choose "change desktop background" then navigate to the visual effects tab.

Or you can go to System, Preferences, Appearance, Visual Effects tab

Then install compizconfig-settings-manager in synaptic or


sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Then look under System, Preferences for the compiz manager
