/dev/nvidiactl is a tool for individual (non-root) users to control
the function of their NVIDIA card. To make it accessible to everybody
I set the access mode to 666.

Try it out - I think that could fix your desktop effects problem.

Unfortunately, no. The ONLY desktop effect I get is when I click on the
top border of a window, it becomes semi-transparent. It stays this way
while I move it. Nothing more. I have tried a new user just in case
something is odd in my directory. Nothing works.

I am convinced the window manager is the problem. It is kwin (4.2.4 (KDE
4.2.4) "release 2"). The card is an NVIDIA "GeForce 9400 GT/PCI/SSE2"
running NVIDIA driver "3.0.0 NVIDIA 185.18.14".
