Since not too long (like this afternoon) my desktop effects randomly switch off without any notice, error or similar. I can change it back by selecting Effects under Appearance, but it is sort of annoying. Anybody else had this problem in 9.10?

What graphics card do you use and have you installed the drivers for it?

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, as far as I know drivers should be installed. Any input on how to check if they are?

Go to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers ot see if you need any proprietary drivers.

It says 'No proprietary drivers are in use on this system'.
