2.I added xeffects overlay
Code:
layman -a xeffects
& I put this in /etc/make.conf
Code:
PORTDIR_OVERLAY="/usr/local/portage /usr/local/portage/xeffects"
3.I installed Xgl
Code:
emerge -nav subversion
I added this to /etc/portage/package.keywords & /etc/portage/package.unmask (both)
Code:
# Dependencies
dev-util/git
media-libs/glitz
media-libs/mesa
x11-apps/mesa-progs
sys-apps/man
x11-libs/cairo
dev-python/pycairo
x11-libs/qt
x11-misc/util-macros
x11-proto/glproto
x11-apps/xvinfo
x11-apps/xlsclients
x11-libs/libwnck
x11-misc/xwinwrap
virtual/xft
gnome-base/gconf
gnome-base/libgnomeui
x11-libs/gtk+
dev-libs/glib
x11-libs/libdrm
x11-libs/pango

#XGL Package
x11-base/xgl
I added this to /etc/portage/package.use
Code:
x11-libs/cairo glitz svg X
& reinstalled cairo
Code:
emerge --ask --verbose cairo
I rebuilded pango and gtk+ against the newly built Cairo package.
Code:
emerge --ask --verbosglproto and libdrm are installede pango gtk+
I verified whether glproto and libdrm are installed

I installed Mesa & Xgl
Code:
emerge --ask --verbose --noreplace mesa
emerge --ask --verbose xgl
& reinstalled the nvidia-drivers
Code:
emerge nvidia-drivers
4.I installed compiz-fusion (0.60 -> stable)
I added the following lines to /etc/portage/package.keywords
Code:
dev-python/compizconfig-python 
x11-wm/compiz 
x11-wm/compiz-fusion 
x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-main 
x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-extra 
x11-plugins/compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported 
x11-wm/emerald 
x11-themes/emerald-themes 
x11-apps/ccsm 
x11-libs/libcompizconfig 
x11-libs/compizconfig-backend-gconf 
x11-libs/compizconfig-backend-kconfig 
x11-libs/compiz-bcop
& then installed compiz-fusion with all his depencies like emerald, etc.
Code:
emerge -av compiz-fusion
5.The Problem!
Now when I want to start compiz-fusion the problem starts!
first of all, do I start compiz-fusion the right way?
Code:
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 INTEL_BATCH=1 compiz --replace --indirect-rendering --sm-disable ccp &> /tmp/compiz.log
because on a other forum they recommended this line

Then compiz starts.
I'm sure it works because when I press alt+tab I get an effect of the alt+tab function that is for sure from compiz.

But I don't have any borders!!

On http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_compiz-...window_borders
they say I have to try
Code:
emerald --replace
but that just does nothing!

Thay say It might be that 'XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS' is somewhere written in a file in '/etc/env.d/*' But that is not the case..
Code:
oldsko0l@localhost ~ $ grep "XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS" /etc/env.d/*
oldsko0l@localhost ~ $

Anybody here who knows how to fix this? It'd be well appreciated by me

I tried to give as many info as possible, maybe you still need to know a certain detail to help me, just tell me what u want to know & where I find that information & I'll give it to u

I hope someone can help me, Thanks!

OMG! Just made the biggest topic in my, life and 5 minutes later I figured it out myself!
I just had to do
Code:
emerald --replace
& after that start compiz-fusion!!
Code:
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 INTEL_BATCH=1 compiz --replace --indirect-rendering --sm-disable ccp &> /tmp/compiz.log
Anyhow, I hope maybe someone else is helped by this topic So id would have any use :')

Glad to see you figured it out. Also nice to include what you did to resolve it for others that may run into the same problem. Seen this question here before on here a few times.

tnX dude!

After 2 days of googling and testing every trick I've found on the net, I tried my last chance and it was your post!!

With your solution, now I have Xfce+Compiz-Fusion/Emerald on my Gentoo box with NVidia 6600.

Even in 2009 it's useful.

So many people had/have this problem
Code:
compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin 'yes'
without any solution.


You're r0ck man!!
