Fedora 18 mate and compiz fusion


I nstalled Fedora 18 (Fresh install) then added the mate desktop... all good then i added compiz fusion which brings me to my 2 questions.

1) How can i make compiz start automatically at log in? I remember googling this before and solving it before in previous releases but cant find anything now.
2) When i start compiz in the terminal i get this output

[root@localhost Nemesis]# compiz-mate-emerald
compiz (video) - Warn: No 8 bit GLX pixmap format, disabling YV12 image format

now compiz starts... i know because I get the effects... cube, wobbly windows, etc but i dont know how to describe it easily so here is a screen shot of before enabling and after.. is it just a setting that needs to be changed?

You can autostart just about anything by placing its desktop file in ~/.config/autostart. If you need an example. I offer:
Code:
~/.config/autostart$ cat compton.desktop 
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Exec=compton --config /home/a/.config/compton/compton.conf
Name=Compton
Comment=Another compositing manager for X

this may be solved by having compiz auto start idk yet but in the terminal if i do this compiz starts and my border issue does not surface

[root@localhost Nemesis]# compiz --replace ccp & emerald --replace &
[1] 2665
[2] 2666
[root@localhost Nemesis]# compiz (core) - Warn: SmcOpenConnection failed: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported
compiz (video) - Warn: No 8 bit GLX pixmap format, disabling YV12 image format

You can just create the file and the directory if they doesn't exist
