Default compiz not working here

Hello. I have an updated Ubuntu Gutsy install here with long-time nvidia usage. I am using the 100.14.19 linux driver and all works fine outside of compiz. 3D applications work as expected.

I start up the beryl-manager and have configured compiz to only use the 3D cube. I switch to the compiz window manager from the beryl-manager and the following output is displayed to the console started beryl-manager:

Checking for Xgl: not present.
Detected PCI ID for VGA: 04:02.0 0300: 10de:0322 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA])
Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present.
Checking for non power of two support: present.
Checking for Composite extension: present.
Comparing resolution (1600x1200) to maximum 3D texture size (4096): Passed.
Checking for nVidia: present.
Checking for FBConfig: present.
Checking for Xgl: not present.
Starting emerald
/usr/bin/compiz.real (core) - Error: Another window manager is already running on screen: 0
/usr/bin/compiz.real (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0
Not initializing the Gtk-Qt theme engine

My nvidia card is a pci slot (not agp) and output from lspci shows

nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)

Compiz runs without crashing, but all I get when I use ctrl-alt + arrows is a map of the virtual windows (no cube).

I suspect the card is too old or the pci slot makes it too slow.

Any help appreciated.
