Hi,

after playing several days successful with the "Visual Effects" in the Appearance application to customize my LinuxMint I'm now falling back to "None" with the message Desktop effects could not be enabled. All windows are touched and repainted but nothing happens.

jockey.log is saying

2009-06-14 14:55:22,158 DEBUG: enables_composite(): already using nvidia driver from nondefault package
2009-06-14 14:55:22,158 DEBUG: enables_composite(): already using nvidia driver from nondefault package


I'm using a Dell Latitude D830 and I've no clue what I did wrong changing the system from working to this problem.

seems like you've been playing with more than just compiz. Have you installed nvidia drivers from anywhere other than the Hardware Drivers tool? Anyway, you might be able to fiddle with the settings in the nvidia manager to fix this.
If you have a question that has been answered and solved, then please edit your original post and put a [SOLVED] at the end of your subject header
Hint - use a google search including the search term site:forums.linuxmint.com
