compiz fusion icon

I was looking for compiz fusion icon for 11.2 gnome desktop. Is there a package for it.

I have a feeling it’s more a kde package, but I could be wrong
Check here
Compiz Fusion - openSUSE
There is a gnome oneclick which will add all the gubbins
But read this too first: Installing and Configuring Compiz

It works on Buntu gnome. It is a great help really when we switch windows decorator and as such.

I have used it too. I agree.
My search says it’s here
Index of /repositories/X11:/XGL/openSUSE_11.2

I see that is added in Ian’s instructions or the Oneclick

Found it at Index of /repositories/X11:/XGL/openSUSE_11.2/x86_64


Got the icon but it wont show up anywhere, tried search but it failed too.

In a terminal do


that’s a guess

This is what i got -

david@linux-zsof:~> fusion-icon

  • Detected Session: gnome
  • Searching for installed applications…
  • No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with direct rendering context
    … nor with indirect rendering, this isn’t going to work!

It works on buntu with same hardware. Wonder what is biting it in suse.

Have 64-bit and Nvidia. BUT I use KDE. I am also getting errors when trying to use the fusion-icon. Any particular reason you need it?

Here’s my output:

I’ll try installing Gnome and see what I can get in there. Will report back

Take Care,



Compiz on suse works well in kde, with gnome it slows down the system. I’ve already made some modifications in order to avoid crashes. Fusion-icon is a great help for switching over to emerald and metacity. I wish it works with 11.3 in near future.

Compiz on suse works well in kde
You know a plain kde install does not have Compiz?! But uses native kwin.
I have tried Compiz myself recently and it worked fine in kde and gnome (This was in 11.3), but I didn’t ADD anything, just used the defaults from install.

Fusion-icon is useful for switching windows manager. On kde it works well but in gnome it wont show up. For other copiz setting I use simple css manager.

Like I said. I had a feeling it was used for kde
