    Default compiz , fusion , X11:XGL , repo broken ?

    I updated compiz today on one of my workstations now everything is all out of order. windows freezing , no window decorator running.
    Code:
    compiz-decorator --replace &
    doesnt help either. After looking at the versions all the compiz fusion stuff is at .7.x release and the gnome compiz stuff is at .82 , is something wrong with the official repos ? Even the one click installer on the suse/compiz page is bringing dependancy errors. Tried 1 click, didnt help. deinstalled everything and tried everything manually removed the ~/config/compiz and let zypper do its magic but its still broken . Only thing is to completely deactivate all effects. Am I missing something here ?

    Hi,

    Did you remember to remove all your previous compiz packages before trying to upgrade? If not then you'll get dependency errors that are easily fixed. I've found out through a lot of reading and work, that you just need to do a few things to get it to work right. Check this thread out on getting compiz up and running.

    Thanks for that link very useful, I guess my search foo wasn't to good yesterday . I did finally manage to update to .8.2 The problem was somewhere in my user profile. (With a fresh test user everything was working, but with my user account I wasn't getting a window decorator, even after complete reinstall like in the post, and deleting ~/config/compiz) So after creating a new one it started working again. I'm not sure as to what exactly but something somewhere got corrupted in their.
