Hi All,
someone can explain me why when I enable the desktop effetcs the bar on folder/programs disappears ??

Note:
glxgears works
glxinfo |direct Yes

I have installed only
compiz
compiz-fusion
compiz-fusion-gnome
compiz-gnome

The version is 0.7.6, but it happened also with 0.7.2

ah ... effects doesn't work of course.

Thanks in advance.

This happens sometimes on my machine. The usual fix is to re-load the window manager, repeatedly if necessary, until it cooperates. At least, that's what I do.

As already said , install fusion-icon to start the effects .
I would upgrade to 0.7.7 as it's more complete than the Fedora version ! ( in the fedora version emerald wont work as they forgot to compile it against the new compiz version again :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: )
