    Default Lost compiz on KDE 4.5?

    Hey guys,

    Last night I upgraded my KDE installation from 4.4.4 to 4.5.1 but suddenly, I lost desktop effects. If I remembered correctly, KDE uses compiz for its desktop effects. I also installed fglrx 8.771 (didn't work before but finally got it working) but that didn't get compiz happening again.

    Please help?

    Fixed:

    You need to add this line to your .bashrc
    Code:
    export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1
    You need to also change the lines in your ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc file:
    Code:
    CheckIsSafe=true
    DisableChecks=true
    OpenGLIsUnsafe=false
    As always, it's a screw up on the part of ATi's fglrx driver.
