    Default Re: Steps to install Compiz

    Ah, Gnome, I've used KDE throughout my whole linux experience. Have you tried installing it with the one click installer here?

    Compiz Fusion - openSUSE

    Also doesn't Gnome have compiz-fusion installed by default?

    Take Care,

    Ian

    Default Re: Steps to install Compiz

    I think it is installed by default. Not sure if that's the case from the CD.

    Maybe all you need is to do this from su terminal:
    Code:
    xgl-switch --enable-xgl
    Leap 15.1_KDE
    My Articles Was I any help? If yes: Click the star below

    Question Re: Steps to install Compiz

    Thanks for your sooner replies.

    After installed some packages I found two new options about Compiz.

    "CompizConfig" and "Desktop Effects" at Utilities section.

    I can set up some options in CommpizConfig but I need to activate it.

    For what I read I can activate Compiz using Desktop Effects though when I click over Desktop Effects it doesn't show up anything.

    I am not sure if Desktop Effects is well installed.

    Any ideas/comments/suggests will be welcome.

    Thanks

    I typed and this was what I got.


    linux:/home/lunavf/Desktop # xgl-switch --enable-xgl

    Warning! MD5DIR is not set: you probably called this script outside SuSEconfig...!
    Using MD5DIR="/var/adm/SuSEconfig/md5"...
    No changes for /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers
    No changes for /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config

    Question Re: Steps to install Compiz

    Hi yall,

    My Desktop Effects doesn't work yet.

    I tried this

    HTML Code:
    linux:/home/lunavf/Desktop # compiz --replace glib gconf
    compiz: Trying '/usr/$LIB/libIndirectGL.so.1'
    After a few seconds my display changed. I can do some 3D Cube effects with Ctrl+Alt+Down but thats all.

    I ve been playing with CompizConfig Settings Manager and no matter what option I chose it doesnt work.

    I believe my Nvidia is working fine ... though GXL it doesnt work.

    Any ideas/comments/suggestions would be welcome...

    Thanks in advance,
