Hello Everyone,
I tried enabling desktop affects and found that NONE is my only option, at this time. They were working before but now it's gone south on me! I ran compiz-check and here's what I got.

Gathering information about your system...

 Distribution:          Ubuntu 7.10
 Desktop environment:   GNOME
 Graphics chip:         ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] (rev 01)
 Driver in use:         radeon
 Rendering method:      AIGLX

Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system...

 Checking for texture_from_pixmap...               FAIL
 Checking for non power of two support...          FAIL
 Checking for composite extension...               OK
 Checking for FBConfig...                          OK
 Checking for hardware/setup problems...           OK
Can anyone tell me how to re-enable the first two failures??? Any help is greatly appreciated.
