Compiz Desktop Effects Not Working

Hi,

I have a FC6 installation with a ATI 9800 PRO video card. Xorg is using
the open source Radeon driver.

I did a vanilla install, and the Desktop Effects worked ok.

I have since updated my installation with all FC6 updates. Now the
Desktop Effects fail.

Running desktop-effects from a terminal yields the following output:

gtk-window-decorator: Could not acquire decoration manager selection on
screen 0 display "localhost:11.0"
compiz: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No manageable screens found on display localhost:11.0

What does all the mean and how do I fix it?

Thanks people.
