    Default Cairo dock w/OpenGL not running [11.3]

    Hello,
    I recently upgraded from 11.2 to 11.3. I had to manually install nVidia drivers to get the desktop working correctly (compiz was enabled), now the system runs fine except for cairo-dock which doesn't start on KDE boot.

    Running it from console and choosing Yes when asked for using OpenGL, it returns an error

    djechelon@MONSTR:~> cairo-dock

    ============================================================================
    Cairo-Dock version: 2.1.3-7
    Compiled date: Mar 18 2010 20:45:24
    Running with OpenGL: 1
    ============================================================================

    cairo-dock: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgtkglext-x11-1.0.so.0: undefined symbol: GTK_WIDGET_NO_WINDOW

    After upgrade to 11.3 I performed a full distro upgrade via YaST by updating all the packages if a newer version was available, so I'm using the latest version of all the packages on my system.

    I searched with YaST for the package containing that libgtkglext and forced its upgrade in order to reinstall it. No fix.

    Here is my repository list

    Hello,

    I think the version of gtkglext on openSUSE 11.3 is a bit buggy (you can have a look to a similar problem here). Can you try to install a newer version?
    I've found a repository with a newer version there: Index of /repositories/home:/gbvalor/SLE_11
    And you can find a copy of libgtkglext's packages there: Index of /opensuse

    BTW if it's a problem with the current version of libgtkglext, can you report this bug to maintainers of this package on OpenSUSE?

    Actually opengl on 11.3 is very buggy. Search on bugzilla for opengl on 11.3 and you'll find several issues regarding to opengl, mostly related to Intel graphics.

    I notice these problems myself (running KDE) when running compositing on opengl (no trouble on xrender).

    At this point it is not very clear to me who is going to fix this, either the openSUSE team, or they are waiting for a fix from upstream or the community.

    And do these packages fix the bug? => Index of /opensuse

    Updating libgtkglext from Index of /opensuse/x86_64 solved the problem for me
