Have you set the resolution? You can do this in the menus but it's easier to edit the xorg.conf. I added the line above to do so.
Add 'Modes "1024x768"' as above (under SubSection "Display")and save your xorg.conf. Then log out and hit Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to restart the X-server.
Is there anything else screwy with the image other than fonts? Rarely you also need to set the DPI for the screen.
Is this a nVidia powered laptop? Often they misreport or fail to report their native resolution and I suspect you might be running a higher resolution than necessary.
Desktop effects in Compiz are pretty subtle and it looks to me from your xorg.conf that they are enabled, but there could be something wrong.
If the kmod-nvidia package from livna successfully installed then you don't want to 'build' it. If we don't get this figured out I'll probably recommend removing livna's kmod-nvidia, rebooting with the generic driver, then reinstalling the package. Let me know.
