Thread: OpenSuse 11.1 & Compiz Fusion WTH?

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse 11.1 & Compiz Fusion WTH?

    Its that time again folks. I searched the forums and tried some of the fixes suggested but they didnt seem to work or i didnt understand them.

    I have opensuse 11.1 64Bit
    Core 2 Duo @ 3GHz
    2 NVIDIA 7900 GS w/ sli bridge
    1TB Barracuda SATA
    500GB Barracuda SATA
    350GB Barracuda SATA
    4GB DDR 2 RAM.

    The problem i have is i cant seem to be able to get compiz fusion working on opensuse 11.1. Im running Gnome ( the new kde has its own composite manager ) and i have the composite option turned to "on" in my xorg.conf file. I installed compiz fusion from the community repos, the latest version, and i compiled my own nvidia driver ( using the latest version from the nvidia site ). Any help would be awesome. Thank you in advance!!

    Hi,

    When you say you can't get it working, does this mean no effects work whatsoever, or that only some effects work, or you have no window decorations? Please be a little bit more specific.

    It means, when i turn it on the window decorator bar is gone, and no effects are in place. I tried re-installing the driver afterwards ( it was the fix in 11.0 ) but that didnt work so....any advice?

    Hi,

    Windows Decorations are easy to fix. Open up the CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM). I guess I probably should have asked what version of compiz you were using. You can get this by opening up terminal and typing

    compiz --version

    Regardless, under Window Effects, if there isn't already, put a check next to Window Decoration. Click into Window Decoration and where it says command type

    emerald --replace

    Then restart and see if that'll clean up the missing title bar part.

    Hope this helps,

    Ian

    And also could you post your xorg.conf on here?

    It's located at /etc/X11/

    What worked for me (same problem, about the same specs) was to delete all c-f and re-instaal the Git version, that did it.

    Hi,

    First you'll need to add AIGLX to your xorg.conf.

    hit alt+f2 then type

    Code:
    gnomesu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Add this under the "ServerLayout" section.

    Code:
    Option "aiglx" "true"
    Also, under the Section "Module" erase this

    Code:
    Load         "dri"
    Save it then try running these commands as root in a terminal.

    Code:
    su
    enter root password to become root.

    Code:
    nvidia-xconfig --composite
    nvidia-xconfig --render-accel
    nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals -d 24
    Then restart your computer and see if the effects work.

    Good Luck,

    alright, so i did what you told me, reinstalled the driver at the end ( cause x found no screens ) and compiz works now, but emerald doesnt give me window decorations i had to select metacity. But now however, sound doesnt work! This had never happened so i dont know how to fix it. Any input on how to fix both these issues?

    Hi,

    Not sure on the sound. You'll have to wait for caf4926 to pick this thread up or post a new thread with your sound problem.

    Make sure that CompizConfig Settings Manager has Window Decorations on and that the command under that plugin is

    emerald --replace

    Good Luck,
