F13 + open Nvidia driver + compiz display issue


Hi all,

I have just upgraded to Fedora 13, and am trying to use the experimental Nvidia driver to enable Compiz desktop effects. The driver appears to be working correctly, but when I enable desktop effects, my text/icons/option menus are inverted (mirrored on both x and y axis's). Can anyone help me solve this issue? am i going to have to go to the proprietary Nvidia graphics driver?

Thanks!

In a terminal window, try
Code:
xrandr -o inverted
If that leaves your screen unchanged, then try
Code:
xrandr -o normal

xrandr -o normal had no effect. xrandr -o inverted caused my display to rotate 180degrees (so the screen was just mirrored about the y axis. also, the mouse now moves in the opposite direction (makes sense, since i believe the command simply tells the screen it's upside down, i guess.
any other thoughts/suggestions?

thanks

I'm not on my Rawhide/Compiz system at the moment, but it uses the experimental drivers from F13, and displays normally. Is there a desktop image orientation setting you can tweak using ccsm?

I was asking the OP for his /var/log/Xorg.0.log file. I was not asking you for your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file :-)

Well your log file looks fine. I've seen that kind of problem reported with compiz in the past by intel users who somehow managed to get the nvidia GLX module loaded, so I thought that might be the case here, but, in your case, the glx module is the correct Xorg one. I highly recommend opening up a bug report with fedora.
