Thread: Compiz Fusion

  1. #1

    Default Compiz Fusion

    I installed openSUSE 11 off of a dvd and chose kde 4 but then later downgraded to kde 3.5. Now I want to use Compiz but when I turn on desktop effects, nothing happens. It may have to do with the fact that I don't have proper drivers for my 256 mb geforce 8500 card. I tried to install the drivers through yast but little seems to have change.
    Help?

    The nVidia drivers through YaST or 'one click install' sometimes do not work.
    Download the driver from the nVidia site;
    NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.05-pkg2.run for newer cards or the legacy for olders cards.

    open a terminal and type:
    su
    (password)
    init 3
    cd ~/where you put the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.05-pkg2 file
    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-173.14.05-pkg2.run

    And follow the instructions, just answer 'yes' to all

    Finished ? Type:
    init 5
    or
    startx

    You should be OK. Remember that anything you change in the kernel department needs you to repeat the procedure.

    Hi,
