    Default KDE 4.1 Compiz install problems


    Hi all,

    I'm having trouble installing Compiz via the one-click-install.

    I have tried the one-click for KDE and for KDE4, but I continually get
    these errors:


    Code:
    --------------------

    nothing provides libplasma.so.1()(64bit) needed by compiz-kde4-0.7.8-9.1.x86_64

    nothing provides python < 2.6 needed by compizconfig-settings-manager-0.7.8-2.4.x86_64

    --------------------


    I am running a fresh install of OpenSuse 11.1 64 bit version on an ASUS
    F8VA.

    Be gentle - I'm not used to either KDE or rpm files... or Compiz for
    that matter.

    You don't actually need to use any OneClick install - Compiz is
    installed natively in kde4.

    Config Desktop - Desktop - Desktop Effects
    enable

    All effects section to adjust settings
    use kwin as window manager (in session manager)

    Hey caf, thanks the reply mate!

    That was actually the first thing I tried, but i get this error message
    pop up when I tick the "Enable desktop effects box" and then press
    apply:


    Code:
    --------------------

    Failed to activate desktop effects using the given configuration options. Settings will be reverted to their previous values.

    Check your X configuration. You may also consider changing advanced options, especially changing the compositing type.

    --------------------


    So I did what the message says and it all seemed peachy to me, then I
    tried to update it with the one-click...

    Did I do more damage?...

    Alright - It turns out that the seocnd monitor I have plugged in was
    causing the effects not to turn on. It's disabled now and the effects
    _say_ that they're on, but nothing fancy happens... ever.

    I turned on the explosion effect when windows close... nothing.

    Is there somewhere else I need to turn 3D acceleration on...?

    Also - Kwin is my window manager, but I didn't have to change it (i
    even tried setting it to compiz, but still nothing).

    Your not the only one. I am having the same problem. I choose compiz
    as my default window manager and it isnt doing anything.
