I recently updated my systems packages to newer versions, if available (with no dependency issues)(suse 11/kde 4.1).
However, after i logged back in I got the “checkerboard” problem (KDE 4.1.1 Upadate Checkerboard Problem - Page 2 - openSUSE Forums).
After adding the qt44 repo and updating that problem was fixed, however…I have a new problem:
Compiz is not started (even though my ccsm settings remain the same). I tried going to session manger but there is no longer an option to change the window manager there…
If I try to “enable desktop effects” under settings (even though I dont use those effects, I use compiz effects) I get the message:
"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, long story short…I can’t get compiz working again. Am I missing something simple or is this related to the reason the checkboard problem has come up?
Maybe the window manager was reset to default and not compiz? I dont know how to change that anymore since the option isnt under sessions anymore…
Any help would be appriciated!
Ok, so I found the window manager, duh, its under default apps under settings. Ok, So compiz is selected…but not running…
If i click configure, it says running the config tool failed.
anyone? could use some help here…
I don’t use KDE, but do use compiz, I wonder if you tried deleting
compiz and re-installing? Else maybe update compiz from the X11

Well with the latest everything from a yast update, kwin doesn’t work with 4.1.x factory. Compiz window manager works however effects and window decorations do not work.
For me running xgl and fglrx driver the kwin manager crashes my X server. So it is that or no gui.
I switched the window manager to say ICEwm and I get my window decorations, no compiz of course and doesn’t play as nice but it works.
