When I start Desktop Effects it does not work.
Starting via the terminal I get
root@LINUX:~# desktop-effects
nvidia hardware not available
Then after clicking enable I get
gtk-window-decorator: Could not acquire decoration manager selection on screen 0 display ":0.0"
/usr/bin/compiz.real: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
/usr/bin/compiz.real: Failed to manage screen: 0
/usr/bin/compiz.real: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

What should I do? Thanks for any help.

do you have an nvidia graphics card, and more importantly, have you installed the nvidia binary graphics drivers and had them correctly identify your card?
