Desktop Effects in KDE4 will not start


Hello.
I have a problem concerning KWin with its Desktop Effects. When only I am logged into my machine the Desktop Effects works fine. But if my wife logs in with her account too, then the problems arises. If my wife has Desktop Effects disabled, then when she tries to start them, an error pops up saying that desktop effects cannot be started with this configuration. If she has Desktop Effects enabled when she logs in then they won't work, and after she has logged in (with her Desktop Effects enabled) the Desktop Effects in my account doesn't work.

To make a long story short: I cannot find a way to have Desktop Effects enabled in two virtual terminals at the same time?

If anyone who knows how to do that, then I would be very pleased :-)
