Problem with desktop effects and nvidia driver
After fresh install of fedora 10, graphics looked fine, but I couldn't enable dektop effects. It simply said "Desktop effects could not be enabled"
I figgured it was my grahpic driver that was to blame, so I added the RPMFusion repository and wrote "yum install kmod-nvidia.x86_64"
kmod-nvidia.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed
kmod-nvidia-188.8.131.52-170.2.24.fc10.x86_64.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.x86_64 180.29-1.fc10 installed
The driver seemed to install properly, however I can't seem to do any changes in the nvidia-settings program, unless I start it from a terminal as su.
I also have a "Livna display configuration" program, that I'm not sure I've ever seen before in a fedora installation.
I have installed compiz fusion. Nothing works when I enable it, and the "top frame" of each window dissapears.

Can anyone help? It would be swell to finally get all these wonderful effects working. I'm using a Geforce 9600GT.
all the best,
