I finally got compiz working on Suse 11.1 64 bit on an HP 8530p with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 but…
The cairo-dock that ships with 11.1 as well as the slight upgrade on packman aren’t transparent in Gnome.
The AWN navigator is transparent, but seems to slow down the window decorator.
Also, emerald --replace window decoratior takes away my title bars on the windows. How to fix that?
