I enabled Desktop Effects, was using them, I went and disabled them following instructions from the Fedora Rendering Project (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RenderingProject/aiglx) . However after I loggged back in all open windows lost the ability (and bar) to be minimised maximised and closed or even moved. So I enabled the effects again and logged out/in and with effects on my windows buttons were restored and working. I want to be able to disable effects when I have a heavy workload but want the windows to function. Any ideas ?

My card is Geforce FX5600, and I used the dkms enabled nvidia driver from Dries to enable the effects.

Here is the Xorg.conf I used to disable effects
# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"

EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"

Option "AIGLX" "off"
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

And this is what I did to renable.

Option "AIGLX" "on"

Section "Extensions"

The solution is to run 'metacity' to restore the window function.
