    Question Problem with compiz-fusion install via 1 click

    Dear all,

    I have installed opensuse 11.1 x86 KDE on my laptop, and when i try to install compiz fusion from "install via 1 click", i will get the following warings

    compizconfig-settings-manager-0.8.2-3.18.i586 requires compiz=0.8.2, but this requirement cannot be provided

    compiz-kde-0.7.8-10.6.i586 requires compiz = 0.7.8, but this requirement cannot be provided

    I have tried to install them by ignoreing some dependencies, but
    compiz fusion didnt work

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

    Sincerely

    Hi,

    If you could provide us with the whole message output so that we can see what your choices are, we may be able to help.

    Otherwise you could just add the repositories and then select the packages yourself.

    I've explained the new one click installer here New Compiz Repositories - openSUSE Forums

    There's one more repository I didn't list there
    Index of /repositories/devel:/tools:/building/openSUSE_11.1

    You'll need to install these packages
    compiz
    compiz-branding-openSUSE
    compizconfig-settings-manager
    compiz-emerald
    compiz-kde4
    compiz-manager
    compiz-plugins-main
    compiz-plugins-extra (for extra effects like animations)
    libcompizconfig
    python-compizconfig
    simple-ccsm

    all you'll need the devel-tools repository for is
    cmake

    which it will automatically do.

    Anyways, just install those then check out that post I pointed to and that'll get your compiz up and running.

    Hope this helps!

    hi Ian ,

    Thank you for the reply.

    I have tried to install compiz from 1 click again, then when the waring message shows up, i have tried to select different version of compiz-kde, then it worked.

    sincerely

    Hi Ian,

    I have a problem with desktop cube now.

    When I try to enable desktop cube by clicking the check box of
    "Desktop cube", the check mark wont show up, so i cant enable
    cube effect now.

    When i switch the windows manager from kwin to compiz, the number of desktop shows on the right side of start up icon will reduce from 4 to 1.

    Do i have to make any changes before i can enable desktop cube effect?

    Sincerely

    Hi, you might want to open Yast Software Management and reinstall

    compiz-plugins-main

    Once you do this then right click on the pager widget (the one that went to 1) and then click configure desktops. Click the number of desktops down to 1. Then restart your computer.

    When it starts up it should show that you have 4 desktops and you should be able to use the cube.

    hi Ian,

    I have tried done the steps in your post, and after I have restarted my computer, I still only see 1 desktop.
    but when I check the settings in Pager widget it shows 4 desktops..

    Is there other things that I could try?

    Thank you

    Hi,

    Try opening up CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM) and under the category General, choose General Options. Click on the Desktop Size tab and make sure the Horizontal Virtual Size is set to 4. Vertical Virtual Size and Number of Desktops should be set at 1.

    Hope this helps!

    open up a terminal (konsole). What does

    compiz --version

    give you?
