Thread: KDE4.3 Beta1, Kwin and Nvidia

  1. #1

    Angry KDE4.3 Beta1, Kwin and Nvidia

    I'm using KDE4.3 Beta1 from Factory repo, and Kwin effects are very slow with OpenGL compositing method. I had no problem with KDE4.2.
    I'm using openSUSE 11.1 64bit, my video card is a Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS, Nvidia driver version is 185.18.10 (it's a beta driver, but I have the same problem with the stable versions). This is my xorg.conf:

    xorg.conf

    KDE 4.3 beta 1 is for testing purposes only. If you want functionality and stability, give 4.3 a miss and go back to 4.2.3.

    Additionally, there is a specific pre release/beta sub forum.

    Well, I'm using KDE 4.3 Beta 1 with Kwin and nvidia 180.51 and a 8600 GTS and 3d effects are working fine.

    Edit: In fact, glxgears shows about 4500 FPS.

    The problem was the Nitrogen window decoration: I switched to Oxygen, and now I've no problem... strange...
