my desktop effects have been turned off. i know where to go to turn them on, but when i do it just gives me a window that says "Desktop Effects could not be enabled." they were working fine and then i switched over to a different user for my little brother went back to mine and they haven't worked since.

I'd open "Users and Groups" in the System menu and see if their permissions are right to use 3D acceleration.

A quick thing to check is to open gconf-editor and look for the /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager key. You don't want a tick in this box.
