    cool, i think im gonna try that tonight. i just converted my rig over to ubuntu because i took a power hit a couple weeks ago and after 20 minutes of gaming the computer locks up. so no more games for me until i buy a new card. ive been very happy with ubuntu so far. great support and ive got a billion programs running on it with no lag. i cant wait to get beryl running.

    Beryl is amazing... you will love it. I have always loved gnome but beryl is very nice.

    i am having some problems =/
    I followed the steps and i get to this point

    Install Nvidia GPU Drivers
    Installing Nvidia’s closed-source 3D-accelerated drivers is easy with Feisty. Go to System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager and search for the nvidia-glx package. Right-click the selection and select “Mark for installation.” You’ll be prompted with a list of dependencies, which you’ll need to approve for the application to work. Click Apply to download and install the app. Then open a new terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and run this command: sudo nvidia-xconfig –add-argb-glx-visuals; follow the prompts and reboot.

    After i type sudo nvidia-xconfig –add-argb-glx-visuals in the terminal, it prompts me for a password and it doesn't respond to anything i type =/ here is a screeny
