I am trying to get Compiz to work in Ubuntu 11.10. I have FGLRX installed and the "Additional Drivers" screen seems to report that FGLRX is active and currently in use. I have tried using CCSM to enable the desktop cube. It seems to be enabled, yet I cannot get the affect, or any of the other compiz affects (e.g. wobbly windows) to actually happen. I would also like to get the scale plugin work.
My questions are:
- what do I need to do to make sure that FGLRX is running (I have an HP dv7 laptop with both Intel and ATi graphics)?
- once the graphics are setup correctly, what do I do to get the desktop cube and the scale addon to actually work?
Thank you for the help.

Reinstalling the open source ati drivers seemed to fix the problem. All is working now.
