View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compiz not working 9.04 (Have the manager, the effects just don't show up)

April 26th, 2009, 07:37 AM
I go to system > Preferences > Appearance and it says "Desktop effects could not be enabled"

I heard something about cards being black listed, how can I check my card and see if its black listed

compiz check can do that for you in most cases you can find it here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=799070)
it will find other possible problems Also.Have you installed proprietary drivers?
A quick Google search may also find some information for you on blacklisted drivers.
If your running a pci video card and you have a integrated one you have turned off
and it is blacklisted in 8.10 it picked mine up so i had to do a little editing to
get mine working.
