Amazing stuff. The last version of ubuntu did not work on my laptop (HP 6710 B). But the latest version works like a breeze, even the bluetooth.Hats off to the ubuntu guys!

chintan got compiz running ?
lots of eyecandy in this version, preinstalled.

Nahi yaar. Its pre-installed but when I enable it, nothing happens! No error but no cool effects either. Am still trying to figure out what is missing.

Actually ubuntu checks for the hardware support. If hardware supports it, then only the packages are downloaded... It downloaded the stuff for me on second update automatically....

Just found out that my graphic driver is "blacklisted" :'(

DarK said...

@chintan
you got which graphics card/on board graphics controller?

@Chintan: try out fedora7 (see the missing core). Ships with beryl and works like a charm with any goddamn chip.
btw Open Suse10.3 released earlier this month ships with Beryl Compiz Fusion, totally awesome. Compiz by itself is pretty slow.
