    Default How to enable compositing support in KDE4.2?


    configure desktop (Desktop - System Settings) --> Desktop
    Message indicates:
    Compositing is not supported on your system.
    Required X extensions (XComposite and XDamage) are not available.

    I can't find XComposite or XDamage as a package to install with
    Software Management.

    Enabled repositories include:
    'Index of /repositories/X11:/Compiz/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_11.1/)
    'Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1'
    (http://tinyurl.com/94xln7)

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    in /etc/X11/xorg.conf add the lines below at the bottom of the file then
    restart the X server by logging out and logging in again


    Code:
    --------------------
    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Enable"
    EndSection
    --------------------

    Sorry. I don't know how the frowning icon got there. Here's a few
    smiles.
