Unable to set desktop effects on my acer aspire 3000
I recently installed ubuntu 10.10 on my aspire 3000 and everything seemed to work just fine... until i tried to activate desktop effects. tu put it simple, it just don't work.
i checked and doubled-checked the lsmod | head to make sure that my drivers (sisfb / sis_drv.so) were installed and loaded. they were.
i then made sure that my pc was opengl-supporting (Glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
the answer was positive.
with that in mind, i tried many different ways to run compiz(compiz --replace, apparence-desktop effect, run app-compiz) but neither if these gave any results.
after days of google search i yet have to find an answer.
if you could please help me, it would be deeply appreciated.
