Do you have the Nvidia 3D driver installed? If you don't the Desktop Effects will NOT work.

Red face anyway...where's the Device Manager?

any way...i'm not sure
whether the Linux that can know my Geforce 5500 or not
Coz it's already installed.
But seems the appearance even 3d something

cant be good there...

So where's the Device Manager within this Fedora 8?
so like Windows XP we could know what kind of Driver
that is needed to be installed...right?

or8 please get my PC details here...
to make sure that I'm not saying a lie to you all
that my NVIDIA is working under XP
but nor under Fedora 8 of VMWare...
