Configure Your Desktop >> Workspace Appearance & Behaviour > Default Applications >
and check that you have KWin as your Window Manager
thats checked and Kwin is the window manager...
Or, you could try - if you haven't already done so - installing the fusion-icon from Synaptic.
When it's installed go to your main Menu > More Applications > Configuration and select the Fusion Icon.
That should drop an icon into your panel (right hand side) from where you can choose your Window Manager (Compiz or KWin) and it may then possibly "kick start" the 3D effects. You can also use Emerald Themes from that icon.
You may need to restart your desktop
compiz fusion icon and all compiz packages are installed... but when i click the compiz fusion icon nothing happens...
it try's to start as i see in the task bar... but then disappears and nothing happens
in my older laptop i used to use the compiz fusion thingie so im familiar with it... thats why i feel strange here now!!!
