according to fedora 13 release notes, fedora should support desktop effect out of box with nvidia card. my laptop is thinkpad t61 w/ nvidia 140m. but i still cannot enable the desktop effect even with the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental installed. i know i could use some 3rd party driver, but i just want to make sure if there's nothing wrong with my system.

thanks, david

Nvidia offer an excellent driver package from their own website. I have often found that using that package solved these problems. I really think it's worth a try.
