Default Troubles on kde with desktop effects

Hi, i'm having some troubles when try to enable the desktop effects on kde , my pcs is a toshiba satellite l505d gs6000 with a ATI Radeon Video Card , i've already instaled the xorg-xserver-ati .. When i enable the blowing effect a notification appears saying that kwin can;'t enable that effect and others.
Maybe there is a log file i should see, please if anyone can help me.
Thanks anyway.

which version of debian?
the package to install should be xserver-xorg-video-radeon, but in newer
versions this is already installed.

the log files are:

$HOME/.xsession-errors
/var/log/Xorg.0.log

and look at the output of the commands:

lspci
glxinfo


while the support for ATI cards in debian testing/unstable is getting
better with each new kernel, in debian stable i would recommend
installing the fglrx driver from ATI, you can get this driver from the
ATI homepage.


regards
