Hi nilesh,

I'm not a guru but I'm pretty sure that your graphic card doesn't support desktop effects.

About having kde instead of gnome... You can install kubuntu-desktop from Synaptic package manager, go to System menu and click on Synaptic Package Manager (could ask for your login password), there you can find de kubuntu-desktop package and install it. After rebooting, on the login screen, you can choose kde or gnome on the sessions menu.

Good luck! and I hope this help you.

On terminal:
$ glxinfo | grep rendering

If the answer is No then your graphic cards can not run compiz... sorry to hear that.
