I have Dell Studio with a ATI 1 GB dedicated graphics card, I am running Ubuntu 11.10. I have also installed Compiz configuration package.

Once I select necessary options in Compiz I am running the command unity --reset, I will get the 3D effects as long as the terminal is open once I close the terminal, every thing will be messed up and even I will lose the 3D effects.

  • Could you please edit your post and add the output of /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p . Thank you – martin Dec 4 '11 at 11:07

If you passed the

/usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p

test then I would recommend installing CSSM

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

There is a short tutorial here for Cube settings. http://ubuntuguide.net/enable-compiz-desktop-cube-in-ubuntu-11-10-oneiric-unity

Plus you may need to edit some compiz settings therefore install

sudo apt-get install gconf-editor

This editor will be able to access the compiz-1 settings
