I used the System-->Administration--->Hardware and Drivers and install the recommended driver. Upon system Restart I get an error, I am able to switch to a basic mode to view the desktop but can't utilize Visual Effects at all. Any help would be appreciated.

Her is the :0.log

I've not had good luck with "Hardware and Drivers" either. I suggest you use EnvyNG, following the guidance in the second post here:

http://kubuntuforums.net/forums/index.php?topic=3098672.msg152816#msg152816

except for Ubuntu it is "gdm" instead of "kdm".
