Sadly I don't have any suggestions, but thought I might voice my own
I haven't installed Intrepid yet, but I noticed that when I went from my old
Feisty install on my laptop (older, but well supported hardware) that the
Desktop Effects broke. I tried an upgrade the first time, but broke various
apps (Feisty > Gutsy > Hardy). Then I reinstalled because I had a separate
/home partition (still running Hardy). The Desktop Effects are still broken
at this point...
I guess I'm rather Off-topic with this one, but thought I'd mention it -- I
had Desktop Effects and later Compiz with developer plugins working
flawlessly -- on Feisty though. Now I'm stuck with no effects (transparency
was the best) on my Hardy install.
