View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compiz

Hi all:
I have compiz & emerald installed. If I try to enable some effects through the advanced desktop effects settings, nothing happens. This is the output if I run compiz from the terminal. How would I go about fixing the problem referred to in the last statement?

Can you try
sudo apt-get install xserver-xgl Does running
compiz --replace work then?
