3D drivers installed, Compiz != work
My friend and I have been messing around with the newest release of Fedora, and both have decent video cards.
He has an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro, and
I have an nVidia GeForce 7300 GT
I had originally tried getting drivers from nVidia's site, but that didn't seem to work very well (it's been a while, so I can't remember what exactly I did), so I then tried downloading drivers from livna. That also caused some problems, and I tried uninstalling it by typing
However, I think that caused more problems than it solved, because I sometimes get strange happenings with X, like it not wanting to start, or something else strange. Probably a messed up xorg.conf file, so I just use the default.
yum remove kmod-nvidia
Anyway, my friend Tyler didn't bother with drivers from ATI, and installed the ones from livna (maybe nVidia's drivers conflicted with livna's on my machine?). Nothing weird, he can access his 3D games & such, but when he tries to enable Compiz, it tells him "Desktop effects cannot be enabled," as if he didn't have 3D drivers installed & enabled.
Any suggestions for the two of us? me, to repair the mess I've made and then get Compiz, and him compiz too?
