You can turn on all the effects you want in Compiz Configuration Settings Manager...(CCSM)
but changes won't take effect till you change the Window Manager (WM) to Compiz, did you make Compiz the WM ? In case not...

You can change WM from GUI by clicking;
MENU>Control Center>Desktop Settings>Windows
From there click the down arrow by manager, and select Compiz.

You can also change WM from the terminal compiz --replace
Go back to default WM with metacity --replace
