Compiz Fusion is the "cool desktop effects" most notably the Cube that most of you have seen in a screenshot or videos all over the Internet.

There are kernel modules provided by RPMFusion that are specifically designed for Fedora. If you're using yum, and you're using our suggested yum configuration, you should be able to install the drivers easily.

At times new users are poorly informed and assume the best way to get 3D and added feature support for their nVidia graphics cards is to install the driver as provided by nVidia. We believe this is not the case. We recommend using the kernel modules provided by RPMFusion.
