I'm using Ubuntu+Nvidia as well. Never got it working despite following every guide I could found.

My other box has Ubuntu+Nvidia as well, but a different video card. And that one worked out of the box, though very slow.
I guess there are still issues in the Nvidia drivers.

try using the loose binding option, should make it run faster on your nvidia card.

Which version of Ubuntu are you using?
From the Tribe 5, a lot of people seem to have problems to use nvidia with the new OpenGL framework (nvidia-glx-new). Personally, I get a white screen.
I know that Tribe 5 is not a stable one, but this problem of white screen already appear for quite a long time.
Do you have a clear installation procedure - or a reliable URL - to have compiz-fusion working on last beta releases of Ubuntu?
TIA
