Re: ATI drivers installed successfully but KDE won't run desktop effects
I'd bet if you search Leigh's ATI thread on the term "xcomposite" or "xdamage" you'd get some returns. Even though the guide doesn't support F14 some of the info may be relevant to your situation. There are posts in that thread dated as late as yesterday.
