I'm afraid desktop effects may have to wait awhile with this release. Due to something that NVidia did with the drivers where it kills usability with KDE users the Fedora 12 team decided to leave them out.

At least, that's what it says on their common F12 bugs page.

If you're okay with the open source driver, then by all means have a blast. It's a really great release otherwise.

edit: spelling

Common bugs page talks about an issue with the proprietary Nvidia driver. Details at

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F12_bugs#Problems_when_using_t...

Fedora will not ever ship any proprietary kernel drivers. However it is available in the updates-testing repository in RPM Fusion repository if you want to use it. Details at

There's always GNOME. On the other hand, GNOME isn't everyone's cup of tea. I'm using compiz with the nvidia driver, and desktop effects seem to be working just fine.
