    3d effects on hardy ati x1250

    I have just installed hardy heron on my hp6515b laptop and 3d effects are not working. On the beta 3 release, which i had installed too, i just had to click Extra on the Appearance>Effects whereupon it downloaded a package called xorg-driver-fglrx and installed it and i had 3d effects running. By the way i have noticed that the advanced desktop effects settings arent there in the appearence menu as they used to be in the beta. do i have to install compiz before it will work? since they had fixed it in the beta, i had expected it to be running on the stable release. Can someone help?

    $ compiz --replace &

    well it isn't required anymore. I noticed that the restricted driver for fglrx wasn't loaded and thus it couldn't do it after i enabled the driver the thing works just fine.

    I had tried compiz replace but the thing defaulted to metacity repeatedly.
