Talking I just can see white in compiz-fusion!!


I'm having a strange problem in compiz fusion!!
When I do this command: LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=true compiz --replace ccp && emerald &

no error appears, but the screen becomes white! I just can see white!! hehe
If I put the mouse at the upper-right corner, the background becomes light gray and some white rectangles with the icons of windows open appers. I can rotate the cube too, but is always white!!

What should I do to correct this??

I have a ATI graphic board and I used this how-to: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...645/page2.html

try running :

Code:
compiz-manager
instead. I had the exact same problem as you and when I used compiz-manager, everything was good. Also, you can script it and make it start automatically.

good luck,
