3d desktop issues on fedora9 but not ubuntu

Evening all

I have a dual boot with fedora9 and ubuntu (donít know which I want yet)
I have enabled the nvidia drivers on both as well as compiz.

On Ubuntu all seems to work fine. On fedora I have the same config tool and enabled the same effects but most donít seem to work for example fire writing, water thing, the windows key and tab for putting all open apps in a circle are on but donít work, Cube, wobble and making cube into a cylinder all work.
Does anyone have any ideas? In case itís useful I get the nevida logo when starting x on both systems but in ubuntu I get a compiz splash screen but not in fedora. On fedora I have to start the app that sits up in the tray (cant remember its name) before anything works but not on ubuntu. Last bit all the 3d stuff seems a lot smoother on ubuntu compared to fedora can this be fixed on F9?
Hope that all make sense and if you need any more info let me know.

Thanks in advance

Check your window manager. You must have compiz running, not metacity or something else for the effects to work.
