    Default opensuse11.1 compiz windows scaling/selection

    Hi
    after installing opensuse11.1 on a laptop (running before opensuse11.0) some compiz desktop effects don't work anymore.
    Windows scaling hangs the computer (I need to reboot).
    Does anyone get the same problem?

    I have Intel Mobile 945GM in my Dell Inspiron E1505 as well. I have no problems here.

    Do these effects work with a live cd? Is your compiz up to date? I know the latest Compiz (0.8.2) had some bugfixes in it.

    thank you for the answer.
    compiz version is 0.7.8-9.1
    xorg-x11 version 7.4-1
    the driver used in xorg.conf is intel
    kernel linux-su9e 2.6.27.7-9-pae
    only the windows scaling doesn't work. After the correct scaling the computer hangs you cannot select the window.
    I did the installation in both computer using the network install.

    Hmm... Same for me, except for the kernel-pae. And my compiz version. I'm using kernel-default 2.6.27.19-3.2.1 and version 0.8.2 of compiz.

    Try upgrading to the latest compiz and see if that helps.

    Compiz Fusion - openSUSE

    You can one-click install from the above site. This will upgrade you to compiz 0.8.2.

    Glad I could help,

    Remember to do at least one little tweak for compiz to correctly function. Open CompizConfig Settings Manager. Go to the section Window Management. Put a check next to Window Rules then click into it. Find the rule "above" then type

    Code:
    state=fullscreen
    This will allow videos and anything else that's fullscreen to cover the panel.

    Good Luck,

    Ian
