Hi, I just installed Ubuntu 8.04, but found I cannot run Compiz Fusion.

I have a 128 MB NVIDIA video card. Over 300 MB SD RAM. My partition were done automatically through guided partitioning.

What do I need?

HI and have you installed the drivers for the graphics card? What is the specific model? You may look at the FAQ's link in my signature and run compiz-check if you have more issues.

With that little RAM running compiz along side Ubuntu will seriously slow down your computer. You might want to try out Xubuntu with compiz or just select a lighter window manager.

The 128 VGA card was in during instalation, does it eed a driver as of now? If so how do I install one?

If I go for a new card 512 MB is right? 512 MB SD RAM? This is an old Pentium3. With PCI orts. Maybe AGP. How canone tell?
