This is definitely a question that belongs in the newbie forums. Over the weekend my HD crashed so I ended up using the Ubuntu LiveCD I had sent to me ...

Ubuntu LiveCD Desktop Effects... Beryl?
Is that Beryl or whatever Beryl became... I think Compiz Fusion or Beryl Compiz. Or is it something Ubuntu has built-in?
I definitely do not want all the crazy effects, I did that back when I used Beryl and it was fun but not completely useful. Plus, the computer I am using now would not be able to handle a ton of effects.
Thanks for the help!

Those effects are handled by Compiz Fusion. You need a 3D graphics card to handle them but you can pick and choose which effects you want. The best way is to install CompizConfig Settings Manager and you get completely granular control.
I think compiz fusion is installed by default on Ubuntu but you only get the simple settings manager. When you enable the effects from System -> Preferences -> Appearance, you will be prompted to install a graphics driver if required."I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."

Thanks for the info. Sounds like just another thing to mess with that I don't need. I'll stick with what I have.
