    Default Compiz not working in OpenSuse 11.1

    Hi, I have been using OpenSuse 11 for quite a while and it runs hassle free. I've set it up as primarily as a file server (samba) on a windows network for backup purposes. With this OpenSuse machine I can always impress my fellow employees with some nice eye candy - compiz fusion.

    Last week I installed OpenSuse 11.1 hassle free, but compiz fusion does not work out of the box. I remember the first thing I tested was compiz fusion when I installed OpenSuse 11, it worked straight away.

    I am not too clued up with the graphic configuration, why does compiz not work in OpenSuse 11.1. I have a standard Intel dual core with onboard Intel graphics.

    Thanks
    Henk

    Hi,

    Are you using KDE or Gnome and which version? What specific Intel graphics do you have?

    Take Care,

    Hi Ian, thanks for your quick response.

    I am using KDE 4. The intel graphics is the 915m family.

    Thanks

    Then why use compiz. Kwin offers a lot of compiz's features. But AFAICS you don't have compositing enabled.

    Can you post output of:
    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Intel graphics cards SHOULD work out of the box.

    Follow these instructions to getting the newest compiz fusion working with any version of KDE other than 4.2.

    The one click installer is located here:
