For the past few days I've been trying to get compiz working on Ubuntu 12.04 with my NVIDIA graphics card – GeForce GT550M, but I couldn't get it to work.
I've been searched for tips and tricks on how to do it but nothing has worked so far.
This is the last one I tried – http://www.howtoforge.com/enabling-compiz-fusion-on-ubuntu-11.10-oneiric-ocelot.
It appears to be pretty easy but whenever I open the Additional Drivers tool, it says "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system". All the tutorials I have found include this step so none of them have worked.
I would really like to use compiz effects but I don't know what to try any more, so I could really use some help. Thanks in advance!
