I can't seem to turn Normal or Extra visual effects on in a Ubunto 9.04 within VMWare 6.5.2 on a Lenovo X61s It is currently set to none. When I do try it Searches for Drivers and then I get an error Desktop effects could not be enabled. The Help feature doesn't include the Visual Effects and I'm a newby to linux.
Is the problem likely to be related to running Ubuntu as a VM or missing (ubuntu) drivers for the graphics hardware on the host PC, Lenovo X61s? and how do I resolve it?

Oh well
