I have an ATI Radeon 9600 XT card. I’m sure this is good enough for desktop effects to be enabled on. Anyway I have installed the driver from the ATI website for linux. Now every time I try and enable desktop effects it just gives me the message:
Desktop effects are not supported on your current hardware / configuration. Would you like to activate them anyway?
I press yes but it just doesn’t enable it. I upgraded compiz. I used the 11.1 1-click thing. It all worked perfectly in 11.0 … I don’t understand what the problem is…
since 11.1 it has been giving me that message… Does anybody else have this problem?
“There may be problems with the driver, caused by the new kernel version, 2.6.27 used in 11.1; if that’s the case then you’ll have to wait until ATI release in January, or someone’s found a work round, or patches go into SuSE kernel.” ~robopensuse
I have the same problem, using KDE 3.5.10 release 20.11 and Intel 965G graphics card.
Everything was working great on SuSE 11.0, I think was a big mistake the update to 11.1 too many bugs. Nothing work
I’ll tell you what richyf89…
I fix the compiz problem here: Compiz Fusion - openSUSE
for the version 11.1
Now emerald is the pain, I don’t have window frames. GRRR !!!
I saw several people with same problems here in the forums with emerald. Just we have to continue fixing this big mess.
BTY, about multimedia well another nightmare for me, after the update all my multimedia programs were deleted, smplayer, VLC, realplayer, XMMS even the codecs. Now I have to reinstall each one of them.
This update 11.1 killed my weekend.
