The latest kernel update under proposed repository in intrepid ibex now supports 3D with opengl and DRI with the xorg driver so the proprietary fglrx driver no longer has to be used.
The wifi drivers will need to be recompiled as although it still works it drops connection after an unspecified time (making downloading large files impossible) and otherwise has to be restarted.
Many people are saying on forums and youtube that the only way to get those cool effects like rubbery windows is with “BERYL”.
That infact is not the case. ubuntu has this as a fuction in the apperence settings. Just click the high apperance setting. Hope this helped.
