    I believe you will need to install the Compizconfig Settings Manager to be able to enable and configure what effects you would like to use.

    No reason to feel silly. That's one great thing about this community. We are here to back each other up when we run into problems.

    +1.

    On a serious (gasp!) note, just be a bit careful while playing that you don't disable anything too important. If it asks you to disable something, google it before you do.
