I was having a similar issue when trying to use "Desktop Effects"
(Compiz). I am now running Beryl with no problems. Sounds like there
is no window manager running. Did you install Emerald? Take a look at
the ubuntuguide ( under the relevant section for
installing Compiz or Beryl and make sure you have done all of those
steps. Do you have a little red diamond icon in the top menu bar? (I
forget - it is either the Beryl manager or Emerald manager.) If so you
can right click on it and chose what window manager to use.
