That would be Linux Mint 8?

gma4500 graphics throws up a number of bugs - some of the mobile intel cards have quite limited openGL support too. Please tell us how you are trying to get the 3D effects working and how you know they are not. how and what did you check in compizconfig settings manager?

i went to package manager from the menu to see if my compiz installed or not. it is installed.

then i went to- control center/look and feel/ compiz config setting manager

i also follow some guide for web that which effects shuld be checked.
But still no use.
