    Caution ! be careful activating effects in 11.10 and make sure you know how to recover if some thing goes wrong .

    Install the proprietary driver for your graphics card from additional drivers . Install the CCSM from the software center and there is a package named compiz-plugins-extra .

    Effects can be activated from the ccsm , but Compiz can by touchy on 11.10 . I suggest disabling the Ubuntu Unity Plug-in prior activating any effects an starting it after selections are made.

    Read all dialog boxes that appear very carefully !

    Make sure to follow the instruction about the specific version of Ubuntu that you have. Following the wrong instructions may break your system big time.
