Running Karmic Koala.
Have started encountering (was working fine before) a strange problem.
When I reboot the system, the visual effects are set to none. So I need to reset them back to Normal as well as the Compiz effects (I use the Ring switcher for windows)
Anybody else encountered anything similar?
PS. I regularly check for updates
I haven't noticed any problems like that. But this most likely has something to do with your graphics driver. Which video card do you have and which driver are you using? You could try to see if there is a newer version of the driver available. Also check ubuntuforums.org, maybe other people have noticed the same and posted a solution there.
"Intel Corporation Mobile GME965/GLE960 Integrated Graphics Controller"
I am unable to understand if this is the card or driver or something else. Duh!
System->Administration->Hardware Drivers is empty. (Dont know if this helps)
This is a know issue. After browsing the forums I can confirm, even for me, the effects get reset, if my wife logs in using her account before me (after a full reboot)
Also, I loose the Network Manager icon from the notification area.
