    Until Canonical and Steam are working on this, this command line is your friend:

    metacity --replace&

    and the game have full access to your compuetr ressources.

    ?Could an archive or SRU admin accept nvidia-common and jockey from the upload queue?

    They'll tell you to run windows, the only supported platform for those games.

    Great thing with KDE though, when I want to disable effects for a game (not very often but sometimes I do, depending on the game. some just dont like compositing) I just press Shift-Alt-F12.

    Ta-da. It's an inbuilt shortcut in KDE to suspend effects and when I'm done I just press it again to reactivate compositing. Works great and makes my life easier. Unfortunately you can't suspend compositing in Unity because Unity itself is basically a Compiz plugin. So.. you'd suspend the whole desktop .

    But if you can play the game fullscreen and have Compiz undirect fullscreen windows you should be okay.

    Humble Indie Bundle?
    Desura?
