    Default disable desktop effecrts permanently

    Hi there,

    How can I permanently disable the desktop effects in KDE? Whenever I log back in to KDE they're enabled again and i don't want them, they're very unstable on my system.
    I have tried setting "[Compositing] Enabled=false" in ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc but that didn't seem to help. That's not it...what else then, anyone?

    Thanks!
    Ron

    Did you try to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf? Look for a line that says
    Code:
    Option "Composite" "on"
    change "on" to "off", save the file, then logout from your X session.
    After login you should have compiz disabled.

    Hey Adriandeltabala,

    I don't have a Composite option in my xorg.conf.
    When I do a "grep Composite /etc/X11/*" I get this:
    Code:
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia-post:  Option       "Composite" "off"
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.saxsave:  Option       "Composite" "on"
    /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup:  for ext in VGA DVI-I DVI-D DVI-A Composite S-Video Component LFP Proprietary ; do
    I don't think /etc/X11/xorg.conf.saxsave is good for anything - is it? I have not tried changing it tho....but /etc/X11/xorg.conf is AFAIK the only file that's read by X11...

    Could you try to append this lines to you xorg.conf file?
    Code:
    Section "Extensions"
      Option       "Composite" "off"
    EndSection
