Desktop effects enabling and configuration


I installed a legacy Nvidia driver for an older AGP graphics card I have in my PC and now have the option to enable desktop effects in Opensuse 11.1. However the desktop effects don’t seem to happen when using PC.

Is there a reason for this?

I think I read in another thread that compiz may conflict with driver. I know there are the X11 settings, configure desktop settings and the Nvidia settings.

I will be very grateful if anyone can help me get desktop effects working.

My PC isn’t very powerful- 2Ghz CPU, 1Gb Ram, 64Mb AGP Graphics card (XFX Geforce MX4). I’m not sure if this may be problem.

Thanking you.:slight_smile:

I’m not sure I would bother.
Is 3D checked in Yast - Hardware - Graphics?

Using KDE4 and an mx440 card I use Kwin instead of installing compiz and the proprietary nvidia drivers.

My specs are a bit less than yours and I find it too cumbersome in the end.
