I know this has been asked before, but I cannot achieve the effects to take effect, my problem is: I've installed the "CompizConfig Setting Manager" but no effects are working even with this answer(for fedora 16):
I've installed the Ati drivers:

but nothing, also this:

  1. sudo yum -y install mesa-dri-drivers mesa-libGLU
  2. su -c 'yum install libtxc_dxtn --enablerepo=rpmfusion-free-updates-testing'
  3. sudo yum -y install mesa-dri-drivers.i686 mesa-libGLU.i686
  4. su -c 'yum install libtxc_dxtn.i686 --enablerepo=rpmfusion-free-updates-testing'
  5. sudo yum -y update

but once again nothing

How can I get these effects work in Fedora 20? thanks

-Fedora 20
-Cinnamon, Gnome, Mate, Xfce (it does not work in neither of these)
-Ati card -01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RS780M [Mobility Radeon HD 3200]

Cinnamon doesnt support Compiz. Means it didnt worked out for me in Linux Mint 17 which uses Cinnamon as default.
