    It really sounds like a driver issue to me. I had same thing happen, but
    with my Nvidia card...

    Do you get any 3d acceleration at all? or is your only problem with
    desktop effects not working?

    I think your right because google earth just doesn't work and the
    catalyst control center is a bit messed up in the 3d section.

    I can't really see much happening on the ATI opensuse page.. Do you
    think we need to wait for a fix?

    I found this on the forums:

    'ATI driver for 11.1 openSuSE - openSUSE Forums'
    (http://tinyurl.com/8ljfej)

    "There may be problems with the driver, caused by the new kernel
    version, 2.6.27 used in 11.1; if that's the case then you'll have to
    wait until ATI release in January, or someone's found a work round, or
    patches go into SuSE kernel." ~robopensuse

    try removing your old compiz config dir.

    logout and log back in then try and enable the desktop-effects

    I think there's a dir like that some where in kde but not sure of
    location.

    could be located in .kde dir, sorry not real good with kde these days.

    I have the same problem, using KDE 3.5.10 release 20.11 and Intel 965G
    graphics card.
    Everything was working great on SuSE 11.0, I think was a big mistake
    the update to 11.1 too many bugs. Nothing work

    I feel your pain!

    I was really excited to update, It seems like we all made the same
    mistake!

    I don't even think I can watch videos properly, they are so laggy and
    unwatchable.. It must be a driver problem like the guys said.

    I'll tell you what richyf89....
    I fix the compiz problem here:
    'Compiz Fusion - openSUSE' (http://en.opensuse.org/Compiz_Fusion)
    for the version 11.1
    Now emerald is the pain, I don't have window frames. GRRR !!!
    I saw several people with same problems here in the forums with
    emerald. Just we have to continue fixing this big mess.
    BTY, about multimedia well another nightmare for me, after the update
    all my multimedia programs were deleted, smplayer, VLC, realplayer, XMMS
    even the codecs. Now I have to reinstall each one of them.
    This update 11.1 killed my weekend.

    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "On"
    EndSection

    I added this. Is that right? Is there anything more you need to do
    after adding this to the xorg.conf file?
