I tried to enable the “simple” Zoom desktop and also it doesn’t work.
I tried to google that problem and I discovered that in Ubuntu 8.10 there was the same problem posted as a bug. I think is a problemi with my video card driver (NVidia) and the integration with compiz but I haven’t idea how to fix it
Sometimes the one-click installers don’t always work, especially if you run into conflicts while installing the software. Sorry I didn’t see this thread sooner. My guess is that you probably had mixed packages, which often leads to trouble with compiz. I have an NVIDIA card as well and can use compiz without any hassles.
If you do decide to try openSUSE with compiz, please try using my step-by-step guide found here:
I see this thread is a few months old but I’m having the same problem with opensuse 11.3. Both compiz versions from the standard repo and the X11 repo behave the same (the XGL repo doesn’t seem to exist any more). 64 bit system w/ GeForce 8800 GT and nvidia’s binaries.
But I now have another problem. I got compiz 0.9.0 up-and-running in KDE 4.5.1 using the kde4 window decorator (sadly had to abandon emerald), and I can configure it with ccsm, but simple-ccsm just doesn’t run. All I get is a bunch of error messages ending with a complaint that ‘compizconfig.Plugin’ object has no attribute ‘Screens’. Also, simple-ccsm-kde crashes with a segmentation fault.
The version before that did not work with the openSUSE 11.3 milestones - or at least not on all PC/graphic cards.
As I know 0.9.0 is “the first unstable release of the Compiz 0.9 series”.
And the website for bugreports from Opencomposing gave me a “500” (Internal Server Error). So maybe a bugreport in the Novell/openSUSE bugzilla of someone would be the best? As I am still using openSUSE 11.2: Someone who is using openSUSE 11.3? http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Submitting_bug_reports on the component “Compiz”?
And as Ubuntu 10.4 is using that version of compiz just a bit longer (and maybe with more users) - you may take a look at their bugreports with different words to search for and and (if you find a good one) add a link to them on your openSUSE bugreport. Maybe one of them might at least be a bit alike ‘your’ bug?
By the way: in this place might also a good one to find additional info on the zoom issues to add to the openSUSE bugreport on that …
