    Compiz Fusion not working with 9600GT, 8.04 Hardy

    The system installed fine, but no restricted driver was installed (or apparently found :s). I then installed the nVidia 173.08 beta driver and now I have graphics acceleration, but none of the Compiz Fusion effects are working. Can anybody shed some light on this?

    And it doesn't work? That looks just about right. Do you have any plugins enabled?

    You may want to grab the compizconfig-settings-manager package through Synaptic or via a terminal to get the "real" and more advanced settings manager; ccsm. Should pop up in your menus, else just run 'ccsm' from a run box (Alt+F2).
    Code:
    $ sudo aptitude install compizconfig-settings-manager
    ...

    Hey, thanks for your help. I got it to work. It was some conflicting Compiz pluggins that were causing others to not work. All seems to be in order now.
