    I am having a problem with my RAT 5 mouse though. I used to be able to (in 11.4) add:


    Section "InputClass"
    Identifier "Mouse Remap"
    MatchProduct "Saitek Cyborg R.A.T.5 Mouse"
    MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
    Option "ButtonMapping" "1 2 3 4 5 6 7 2 9 10 11 12 0 0 0"
    EndSection

    To the end of xorg.conf but now when I try, kwin crashes after a while.

    The artifacts are normal ... or more precisely they are NOT, but caused by a bug in the driver, not related with atiupgrade or another way to install the driver. This is neither your fault ... nor mine. However I don't know what's behind this in KDE.

    Don't mix methods! If you used atiupgrade, you didn't need aticonfig --initial!
    Look at the last lines of the atiupgrade script (using the "tail" command for example):

    Code:
    $  tail -4 /usr/bin/atiupgrade
    
    # otherwise generate a basic /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    /usr/bin/aticonfig --initial    
    exit

    You should enable - more exactly un-disable - compositing for full screen windows in KDE. See this post and my answer: http://forums.opensuse.org/english/o...ml#post2422525

    Hello there,

    I also have a problem with AMD drivers. I'm running Suse 12.1 x64 on a Radeon HD 6850.

    First I installed Catalyst driver using the '1 click method (64 bit)' as Hipster_Doofus said. Everything was ok during the install and I had Catalyst Control center, etc but I couldn't use any desktop effects. Then I reinstalled the driver with atiupgrade, same result. I also ran aticonfig --initial after that just in case, didn't help either.

    Now whenever I try to use OpenGL in KWin it gives me errors saying 'the following desktop effects cannot be activated: < long list >' If I try to use one anyway, KWin crashes, saying it might be a driver problem. The only way I can get transparent taskbar and stuff is by using the X-Render option @ Desktop effects, but it's slow and can't use every effect with it. I have no experience with Suse (not much with other Linux systems either), I would be glad to get it working, installing Ati drivers has been a nightmare on every distro I've tried so far. Thx in advance!
