    Default Simple CompizConfig Crashes

    Hi all. I've recently started on openSUSE, with no Linux experience otherwise but a quick look at Ubuntu. It's awesome, really is.
    Having some trouble with desktop effects though, Simple CompizConfig....
    On first install of suse, I didn't leave enough memory on the partition to add such things as VLC, codecs etc, but I did try out desktop effects, they worked fine. Now I've sorted the partitions and reinstalled, got VLC working etc but I cannot open the desktop effects tool (Simple CompizConfig) without it freezing and needing Force Quit to close. Aside from this I've encountered no other problems.
    Any advice would be great, cheers.

    Tell us what desktop environment you have, tell us if you installed graphic drivers, tell us about Your hardware, tell us if you made all the updates.

    Next show us

    How does a linux geek make love??

    i would add the X11:Compiz repository and do an update and see if that don't fix your problem

    I can't find the X11 Compiz repo, have tried the suse disc also. Could it be installed already? Also tried downloading it from the resources area of the site, but either I've downloaded the wrong item or I'm trying to use it incorrectly...
