Hello Lorenzo,

this is a KDE mailinglist, so your question is somewhat misplaced - however, 
if you really want to have an accelerated Desktop with transparency etc., I 
suggest trying Xgl  and compiz.

Here are links to tutorials that may help you:

That requires the modular X:

Hope that helps,

Tim
