Hi Abhisek,

Please run this command from your terminal:
$ glxinfo | grep rendering

If the output say YES, then run this command:
$ compiz

If something happen, it would tell us what wrong with the compiz. Cheers..

I just go to ccsm,s preferences and on the plug-in tab selects automatic sorting of plugins and it solves my problem.
