Hi everybody

I don't write or speak English very well, but I'm doing my best. here is my question

I have a Lenovo Notebook and it has installed a nvidia GeForce 7300 video card, the thing is when I tried to enable the desktop effects nothing happens.
i just have this error message: "Desktop Effects could not be be enabled", I went to the nvida web site and I have dowloaded and istalled the last nvidia driver for Linux. and again, I'm having the same problem. after that, I modified my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, It looks like this now

note: I added some sections.

but it still does not work. I searched the web for an aswer, but nothing, What Should I do with this?. Can you tell me, what is my problem. because I'm running out of ideas.

Thanks a lot Guys.

sorry for my english

I just built a set of beryl RPMs for CentOS 5 from the FC6 source RPMs and installed those. Now I have AIGLX/Beryl with spinning 3D desktops in all their glory :-D

It would be nice if RPMForge could get the Beryl stuff built for CentOS - it wasn't difficult. I loosely followed the guide here for getting it working:
