    Exclamation Desktop Effects In Opensuse 11.0 RC 1

    I have OpenSUSE 11.0 RC1 on a HP desktop with Nvidia drivers 173.14.05 installed successfully.

    When I tries to select 'Enable Desktop Effects' under 'Look and Feel', the screen flickers and upon clicking that 'green check mark', 'Enable Desktop Effects' gets deselected.

    Desktop effects / Compiz worked just fine in OpenSUSE 11.0 Beta 3 on the same machine.

    Here is the 1st part of 'glxinfo' [ User 'nullack' replied (asking for 'glxinfo') to my original thread in Suseforums.net but I guess now its 'Read-Only' ]

    I can tell you what likely happened (as I had the same issue with the ATI closed-source drivers); it's likely that compositing is turned *off* (without it, compiz-fusion won't work). Check /etc/X11/xorg.conf (specifically, the "Device" section) and look for either

    Option "XComposite" = "disabled"

    OR

    Option "XComposite" = "false"

    DRI/drm (and AIGLX) will still work if compositing is turned off; however, compiz-fusion won't. (The ATI closed-source drivers turn compositing off by default due to a persistent driver bug that is still present in the latest [8.5] version of the drivers.) Setting this option to "enabled" or "true" (it's a Boolean value, so either will work) and restarting X will fix the problem.

    (However, see my earlier post (in another thread) about known consequences of enabling compositing with ATI's closed-source drivers and watch for similar issues with both closed-source and open-source drivers from nVidia and Intel.)

    Thumbs up Re: /etc/X11/xorg.conf : Desktop Effects In Opensuse 11.0

    hi 'PGHammer'

    Many thanks for your help. Guess I overlooked /etc/X11/xorg.conf earlier.

    Composite was "off" indeed, changed it to "on"

    and Desktop Effects / Compiz started working like a charm.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Thanks for this. I get the message about compositing being switched off
    in my setup, roo. Do you know if switching it back on is all it takes
    with the pre-installed "nv" driver, as I haven't attempted to iinstall
    the "nvidia" driver yet?

    Well, I changed "Composite" from "off" to "on" and the box "enable\ desktop effects" is no longer greyed out, and I could play around in the Compiz settings options, but I still don't see a cube or any difference in desktop behaviour, so I guess I must still be missing something.

    Thanks. That confirmed that I need the NVidia driver, not the nv driver:

    No compiz manager config found!
    which: no fusion-icon in
    Checking for Xgl: not present. No whitelisted driver found
    SKIP_CHECKS is yes, so continuing despite problems.
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present.
    Checking for non power of two support: present.
    Checking for Composite extension: present.
    Comparing resolution (1680x1050) to maximum 3D texture size (2048):
    Passed. Checking for nVidia: not present.
    Checking for FBConfig: present.
    Checking for Xgl: not present.
    -----------------------------------

    It's not critical, simply I'm really just playing with RC1 until the official release, but now that I have a PC which can handle it better, I am looking forward to giving Compiz a go.

    Compiz Fusion does not eat that much Ressources. I know someone who got it running on a PIII 600 Mhz with 416 MB RAM.

    I don't have *that* powerful a PC; I have a P4 2.6 (Northwood-C) with 1.5 GB of RAM (the X1650PRO AGP is the second-newest card in the system, and I bought it last year; only the X-Fi XtremeGamer is newer). In "computer terms", my system is a greybeard (not the age of Albus Dumbledore, but more like Rufus Scrimgeour), and what problems I have with compiz are due to the driver bugs, not the system's hardware.
