    Default KDE 4.3RC3 compositing disabled on login

    I'm getting the following message on login:

    Compositing has been disabled by another application
    As soon as i press "Resume compositing" everything is back to normal.

    It happens only on login, and i don't have a clue where to look.

    Power management can sometimes do that.
    Look in system settings - advanced - power management - edit profiles
    Every profile has a checkbox to disable desktop effects if active.
    I'm not sure this is your problem because I'm not using these profiles on my desktop machine.
    It's probably there for laptop users.

    I'm not getting anything about compositing in .xsession-errors:

    had a similar experience using a ATI graphics chipset and the new Catalyst 9.7 driver, xrender was working well and then tried opengl render in kde4.2rc3. The usual switch and "Do you want to keep this setting" dialog. Subsequently, logging in left composite disabled and would start merely by activating it in Systemsettings.

    Since opengl render was not stable enough, I didn't pursue it anymore. Perhaps disabling the functionality tests (checkbox in Advanced) might have corrected it... by then I'd decided to go back to an older driver.

    I have the latest Catalyst (9.7) on two identical (regarding the software) systems. The one has an HD3200 IGP and the second (that disables compositing on login) has an HD4670.

    So it is not a universal problem of the latest Catalyst, but maybe is hardware related bug.

    You can work around the issue by disabling the compositing self-check in the window options KCM (right click on a window and select window options).

    I'm a Kubuntu user but I have the same problem with an ATI graphic card.

    First, I have opened a bug report with KDE (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202274) and it would be useful if you go there and add a me-too report to make it more likely that a KDE dev looks at it.

    Second, a workaround. Edit you kwinrc (~/.kde/share/config/kwinrc) file (you don't have to be root) and change:
    DisableChecks=false to DisableChecks=true
    Enabled=false to Enabled=true (it might already be true if you manually enabled compositing this session).

    save the file, logout and log in again, and it's sorted.

    Hope this helps and thank you for your hospitality.

    I got the same problem I am using OS: 2.6.27.25-0.1-default x86_64
    openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
    4.3.00 (KDE 4.3.0) "release 155"

    It occured after update from kde 4.2 to 4.3. tried it with catalyst 9.5 and 9.7 both the same .. no change in behavoir.

    In the above mentioned xsessions-errors there is the follwing entry.
    Code:
    X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3
    Also renamed .kde4 in Runlevel 3 and rebooted .. same effect. so it does not seem to be a user data specific issue.

    Added the bugreport to the above mentioned thread. All who have the same problem please do so aswell.

    This can be a cause too: 'older' plasmoids. There have been quite a few changes in Plasma since KDE4 4.0.0. On one of the machines I manage people loaded the desktop with plasmoids in the early days of KDE4. They caused a continuous 100% cpu load and lots of crashes.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.
