    Which Graphics Card do you have? Execute this
    Code:
    su -
    lspci | grep VGA
    grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Post output here.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Fedora uses aiglx instead of xgl. This is built into new versions of Xorg, so all you probably only need to install Beryl, Compiz or Compiz Fusion which work in conjunction with aiglx and xgl. What version of Fedora are you running and post the details of your graphics card as suggested above.

    [root@localhost ~]# grep -i driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Driver "nvidia"

    It looks like you have installed Nvidia driver already. Have you tried to enable desktop effects?
    Log in as Regular User and execute desktop-effects in Terminal. Click on enable.
    You can install and run beryl too.
    Code:
    su -
    yum install beryl-manager beryl-gnome
    exit
    beryl-manager
