    And it adds all these effects to the desktop

    You can add a new tray with the add widget

    If your determined to use kde4 you might want to move on to 4.1
    If you don't know how - ask.
    But make sure you have kde3 installed first and disable auto login.

    theres a check mark by default or ultimate or whatever you have there click it and that might work i think thats supposed to save your settings cause i had the same problem when i used it and it seemed to work
    hope that helps

    to disable auto login:Yast- user and group management
    there is a expert options at lower right and you can select login settings
    then finish

    To install kde 4.1 might not be that good an idea (because if you need me to tell you - you are likely to run in to trouble)
    This is the one click
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...E4-DEFAULT.ymp
    HOWEVER if you are running 64 bit you need to add the repo manually
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0

    you may also want

    I have solved my own problem now so for future refrence this is what i did

    created a .desktop file named compiz.desktop and put it in /home/username/.kde/autostart

    and in that file i inserted the following
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
     Encoding=UTF-8
     Exec=compiz --replace ccp
     StartupNotify=false
     Terminal=false
     Type=Application
     X-KDE-autostart-after=kdesktop

    And now Desktop effects start on login
