XSnow and Compiz

Hi there,
Im using opensuse 11 and am trying to run xsnow. It starts fine and doesn’t report any errors, but i cant see anything related to xsnow, so im assuming it’s a problem with compiz running?

Ive searched around but found nothing to help =(


Not running at all on 11.2 with desktop effects turned off.

…and the snow effect in KDE windows settings is really lame! No snow piling up on windows or at the bottom of the screen, no Santas flying across the screen…and it slows the desktop stuff down horribly…
