I think i found out why we are not getting the effects!!!!! ( well kind
of, I am close!! :-) )

I did a "kwin --replace" in the terminal and got this output:

QInotifyFileSystemWatcherEngine::addPaths: inotify_add_watch failed: No such file or directory
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: /home/ubuntu/.config/ibus/bus
Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address. 
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon 

So I thought hmmm................................. Looking at the installed applications there was ibus-qt4 installed but.. I dunno???..
I looked to see if ibus-daemon is runnung with: ibus-daemon -d 
But then the output was telling me that ibus-daemon is not installed and that I could install it with "sudo apt-get install ibus"

So, yeah... I did!!!

sudo apt-get install ibus

## This installs some GTK non KDE related stuff! Here is the list:
gconf2 gconf2-common ibus indicator-application libappindicator1 libcroco3 libdbusmenu-gtk1 libgconf2-4 libglade2-0 libibus2 libidl0 libindicator1 libjson-glib-1.0-0 libnotify1 liborbit2 librsvg2-2 librsvg2-common python-appindicator python-glade2 python-gtk2 python-ibus python-notify

After the Install I loaded the ibus-daemon with "ibus-daemon -d" went to
systemsettings and tada!! I was able to turn on effects!!!

Now is this a Kwin issue or more a ibus-qt4 issue?? or even a packaging
