Latest trial on desktop effects in gutsy

If you have been reading my previous posts on my new gutsy install I can not get the desktop effects to work that come with gutsy.

My latest try as suggested in the Ubuntu forums was to install nvidia legacy driver for my graphics card. So I installed it, then restarted my computer and x crashed and I couldn't get in. So I used nano and edited my /etc/X11/xorg.conf and changed the driver to "nv" then restarted and computer started smoothly.

I then tried again to enable desktop effects but nope, it asked me to enable the nvidia driver and when I do it removed the legacy driver and installed the regular nvidia driver.

So now I am back to where I was and still no desktop effects on gutsy....
