To see what display driver is currently being used, type the following in a terminal session:

Code:
lspci | grep VGA

Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

AFAIK the effects are not enabled by default in Linux Mint, although Compiz is installed. Open a terminal and type:
Code:
compiz --replace
and see what that tells you.

Kind regards,

Eric
