Im currently running Hardy Heron 8.0.4 amd64 version on my hp laptop with an intergrated nvidia card. This was working fine on normal desktop effects however I thought of getting a bit more fansy to see what my laptop could/couldn't handle. A brief google search about emerald and compiz fusion soon got some great results however now my settings are set to custom and there are no effects what so ever.

Ive decided that the best option is to start from scratch however when i try and remove any aspect of compiz it appears to be uninstalled however as soon as the confirmation message appears its in my list and ticked as if it hasn't been.

Is there something silly im missing here ive only been on linux a few months and only recently changed from Suse 11 to Ubuntu.

Any help would be most appreciated.
