GMA X3100 is blacklisted by Compiz, that's why the effects aren't working.

In order to make it work add the following line on your
~/.config/compiz/compiz-manager file (create the file if it doesn't

You'll be able to enable visual effects now, but there will be certain
side effects... if you come across them then disable Compiz and
everything will work fine again.
