Default Jockey says that my Nvidia driver supports desktop effects but changes to compiz don't take effect

Dear All,
Jockey (hardware drivers) detect my NVIDIA driver and says it's activated and in use, however, changes to CCSM don't take effect. Jockey's description of my driver:"3D-accelerated proprietary graphics driver for NVIDIA cards.
This driver is required to fully utilise the 3D potential of NVIDIA graphics cards, as well as provide 2D acceleration of newer cards.
If you wish to enable desktop effects, this driver is required.
If this driver is not enabled, you will not be able to enable desktop effects and will not be able to run software that requires 3D acceleration, such as some games."I am using Ubuntu 10.04 with the 3.0 kernel. Is there something I am missing ?
best regards,samir

When I run the nvidia-settings command a popup appears with the following :*You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. *Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.when I run sudo nvidia-xconfig that's what i get:*Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
I am in desperate need of help. I don't have any desktop effects.
best regards,samir

I installed this kernel because the default kernel that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 was too old for my wireless card so I couldn't connect to the internet by any means. It would be really great if you can tell me a kernel version that would automatically detect both my GPU and my wireless card automatically.

You have posted this twice, once with a huge amount of other stuff
tagged on the end, and not replied to my reply to you on the other
instance. Also, please learn to /bottom/ quote on mailing lists.

Try working through the guidance here:

I am in desperate need of help. I don't have any desktop effects.


Did you reboot?? Liam is right, please bottom post and trim off the
cruft. Would you post the content of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file? (at
the bottom of your reply, naturally) It SHOULD have these lines in it:


Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
BoardName "GeForce 9400 GT"
EndSection

...The only difference should be the BoardName in your case. If you have
display at all, and you have something else loading as Driver, other
than nvidia, copy that file to something for a backup like
xorg.conf.safebackup then edit xorg.conf and put nvidia inbetween the
quotes. Reboot. If that blows up, you can use safe login or text-mode
to copy the backup file back to xorg.conf.


Also, if you have builtin graghics on the MB and you're having problems
with an addon nvidia graphic card, you may have to adjust a bios setting
to chose between the two. My ASUS MB has a selection for that under
Chipset/Internal graphics. YMMV, Ric
