View Full Version : [ubuntu] Desktop effects working only in 1 of 3 user accounts

Hello, as you may have seen, this is my first post. I'm completely new and I don't know if this post is in the correct section.

My problem is, I can't enable desktop effects on two of the total of three users in my computer. Compiz works perfectly in one of the accounts. I get the familiar "Desktop effects could not be enabled" message on two of the accounts. Here is my output in one of the two users when using compiz-check:
