Exclamation Composite Disabled in OpenSuse


Hello Friends..I alreaddy posted this query but the answers from members did not worked.
Im new to linux and recently installed OpenSuse on my system and my configuration is Nvidia 9500Gt, Amd X2 3600+, 3gb ram.Ever since i installed this Suse, i am trying to enable the compiz Effects on my system bu failed. I followed all the instructions carefully on "configuring Compiz" from Both Nvidia and opensuse websites. But when i use the
$grep Composite /var/log/Xorg.0.log command, i get a msg that "composite" "disabled". But i can see "composite" "enabled" in the xorg.conf file. Im posting the links to a few screenshots. Plz have a look at them and suggest me what to do. The images or not in order. Awaiting any suggestions.
I attached 3 screenshots.

you would need to go here
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
download the driver from nvidia and install it, then use nvidia-config to enable the composite

But i already did that. i installed the drivers and even its showing the Drivers are active in the xorg.config file.I have screenshots of the file but only 3 screenshots can be attached. so i did not. Even its showing Composite enabled in the xorg.config file. but still when i use the Grep command, im getting the msg that composite extensions are disabled.
Please suggest a solution.

I do not use Suse but for compiz to be active I needed to install compizconfig-settings-manager from apt on Ubuntu. Once that package was installed Compiz went active.
May be you will need to replace your current window manager with compiz with --replace command.

Suse has got yast that will help you install packages. It also has package manager called zypper or something.

Use

zypper install compizconfig-settings-manager
