I have installed version 5.5 KDE, compiz, NVIDIA card with driver 260.19.36. I wrote, that I have installed Gnome with command equo install @gnome. I do not know any other command for installing gnome desktop.

if you want to activate the 3D effects under Gnome, you should use fusion-icon, it is located in the main menu:
Applications->System Tools->Compiz Fusion Icon
(the path could be different since I have the Italian localizations)
you can also launch it from a console using:
Code: Select all
fusion-icon

if it is not installed use:
(as root)
Code: Select all
equo install fusion-icon

Using that, switch your window manager to compiz.

This is why it is important for users to provide as much information as possible, so we don't have to play 20 questions. Glad it's all sorted
