so as the topic said, I have 2 questions the first you'll be able to answer right off, I know, but the second maybe not
1. how do you restart the Xserver?
2. I had all of the desktop effects/desktop acceleration working fine but then I go to bed and wake up the next morning and the whole screen is black cept the mouse (accidentally left my machine on all night) and I restart the comp and I see the compiz icon in the sys tray but I have no acceleration or desktop effects, not even emerald is working
as for my machine I have
graphics card: nvidia Geforce 6200
CPU: amd athalon 2100+
sound card: sound blaster audigy SE
RAM: 712 MB
35GB hard drive (well the sabayon partition is 35GB, saved the other half for windows cuz I need it for school)
this problrm occured when I enabled my secon monitor, I restarted the Xserver accidentally so I don't actually KNOW how to do it.
