Unhappy Desktop Effects messes up desktop

So heres what happens.

I switch it on, my display gets crushed into a square shape, and my menus get messed up. I try and switch off display on a cube but it still stays square, and if i log off and log back on with Desktop effects left on ill loose all top and bottom side panels and wont have access to anything.

If there is a way to work on or fix any of this it would be great, if not I would at least like to know where on earth the installation and configuration files for the Desktop Effects component are located. Please be specific as I am decent with Linux but don't know where many of the common areas are that things are stored.

Thankx!

I too pictures using my camera phone since i dont know how to to image captureing on liux that can show what exactly its doing to my computer when I run the Desktop effects. I also tried Beryl which, despite not booting when i log back in, has the same effect on the desktop even with cubeing the desktop disabled.

Oh yeah this didnt make it through:
Linux reports it as a ATI Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]

Also the addatced screen shot shows how an instance of terminal can go behind the bottom taskbar but then goes off into the "space" thats created when I enter "nice" mode when using Beryl or Desktop effects

You're missing an important thing in your xorg.conf file for AIGLX.

Under the Screen section, you need to add the line:
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

Here's what it should look like:
Code:
Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Default Screen"
    Device         "NVIDIA Corporation NV36GL [Quadro FX 1100]"
    Monitor        "Generic Monitor"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes      "1280x1024" "720x400" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
When this is done, log out, log back in, and see if anything has been fixed. If it hasn't then you should install the proprietary ATi drivers (fglrx). They are on the livna repository. That's if this doesn't fix it though.

Well I did add the line to my xorg.conf then i realized that it would probably be helpful if i posted the errors that it was displaying when i ran the beryl-manager:
Code:

Was there ever a fix for this issue? I have the exact same problem and ATI's proprietary driver doesn't support this Radeon RV100/7000 card.
