I have the restricted Nvidia driver installed. When I enable 3D desktop effects, my window buttons disappear from any theme I use, and the desktop switcher gets mucked up by showing too many desktops...like 16 instead of 4. If I change compiz to show 1 desktop, it 'shows' 4 in the panel, but only uses one....anyone on these two problems? I tweaked settings in system and compiz back and forth to no avail (thinking there was some kind of conflict), so for now I've disabled compiz and emerald. Help appreciated as this is one of the major graphical benefits of using linux Setting up compiz in Gnome Darnya was no problem.
