[Bug 392725] [NEW] Cannot enable visual effects after upgrade to Karmic


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Visual effects were working in Jaunty. Now if I try to enable them the
screen flickers for a bit before telling me it doesn't work.

I can run compiz like so:

    $ compiz --replace
    Checking for Xgl: not present. 
    xset q doesn't reveal the location of the log file. Using fallback /var/log/Xorg.0.log 
    Detected PCI ID for VGA: 
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present. 
    Checking for non power of two support: present. 
    Checking for Composite extension: present. 
    Checking screen 1Comparing resolution (1280x800) to maximum 3D texture size (4096): Passed.
    Checking for Software Rasterizer: Not present. 
    Checking for nVidia: present. 
    Checking for FBConfig: present. 
    Checking for Xgl: not present. 
    /usr/bin/compiz.real (video) - Warn: No 8 bit GLX pixmap format, disabling YV12 image format

However, it runs *very* slowly.

Hardware driver support is enabled (nvidia 180).
Compiz-Check reports that everything is OK.
I have attached my xorg.conf.
