I just upgraded my Ubuntu 10.10 to the latest 11.04, but I'm not seeing the Visual Effects tab in the Appearance window. I want to enable/disable extra visual effects like in 10.10. Please help! enter image description here

Would you please post what is your graphic card? – desgua May 5 '11 at 3:09
You have to use Compiz for that, they removed that tab in the Appearance window, sadly :( – Alan May 5 '11 at 3:13

try typing compiz --replace in the terminal, and also install compiz config settings manager,but be careful with some of the settings like the cube and others,you may have a hard time recovering your desktop if it crashes.

I guess He is not having problem with compiz, he is not able to find the place from where he can enable extra effects – puneet May 5 '11 at 11:28
