Compiz Fusion on OpenSuse 10.3 AIGLX Intel


Distro : OpenSuse 10.3, KDE 3.5.8

I have installed OpenSuse 10.3 because I could not hold on to see what's new. While everything is working great but I have faced two problems.

a) The first one is regarding Compiz Fusion :

I followed the steps to install Compiz Fusion for KDE from Opensuse. I have installed Fusion-Icon also and I have also installed emerald.

Please note I was using 10.2 without any problem and with Compiz Fusion working just great with AIGLX. But when I tried to do the same here in 10.3 it's not working. The Window borders are not coming. When I am issuing the following command from prompt :

LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 INTEL_BATCH=1 compiz --replace --indirect-rendering --sm-disable ccp &

I got the following error

compiz: Trying '/usr/$LIB/libIndirectGL.so.1'
compiz (core) - Error: Another window manager is already running on screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

I have added the following in Xorg.conf
--------------------------
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "type1"
Load "extmod"
Load "glx"
Load "freetype"
Load "dri"
EndSection

Section "Device"
BoardName "865 G"
BusID "0:2:0"
Driver "intel"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "DRI" "true"
Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
Option "monitor-VGA" "Monitor[0]"
Screen 0
VendorName "Intel"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout[all]"
InputDevice "Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse[1]" "CorePointer"
Option "Clone" "off"
Option "Xinerama" "off"
Screen "Screen[0]"
Option "AIGLX" "true"
EndSection

Section "DRI"
Group "video"
Mode 0660
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection
------------------------------------

b) The second one is about the Driver "intel" for Display. The display looks bigger (I am using 1024x768). If I change the driver as i810 in Xorg.conf, then the display looks smaller just like what I was used to with 10.2. But then the problem is 3D acceleration gets off, which I think is necessary for Compiz.

Please help.

I am not sure if this can help but since I am myself using compiz fusion with AIGLX on an intel video card, with both opensuse 10.2 and 10.3, I thought I would share my experience. In my case, I had to use the "i810" driver because the "intel" driver in opensuse 10.3 was too unstable, X crashing regularly.

With the "i810" driver, things are working as expected, even though it is true that opensuse claims that 3D acceleration is off (which seems wrong since compiz fusion is working).

Here are the relevant parts of my xorg.conf:

Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Load "type1"
Load "extmod"
Load "dbe"
Load "freetype"
Load "v4l"
Load "dri"
EndSection

Section "Device"
BoardName "915 GM"
BusID "0:2:0"
Driver "i810"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
Option "DRI" "true"
VideoRam 131072
Option "SaXDualHead"
Option "NoDDC"
Option "SaXDualMonitorVendor" "--> VESA"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768-1024x768;1024x600-1024x600;800x600-800x600;768x576-768x576;640x480-640x480"
Option "MonitorLayout" "CRT,LFP"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "31-50"
Option "SaXDualOrientation" "LeftOf"
Option "SaXDualResolution" "1024x768"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-60"
Option "SaXDualHSync" "31-50"
Option "Clone" "yes"
Option "SaXDualMonitorModel" "1024X768@60HZ"
Option "SaXDualVSync" "50-60"
Screen 0
VendorName "Intel"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout[all]"
InputDevice "Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse[1]" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Mouse[3]" "SendCoreEvents"
Option "Clone" "off"
Option "Xinerama" "off"
Screen "Screen[0]"
Option "AIGLX" "true"
EndSection

Section "DRI"
Group 0
Mode 0660
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

Yes, using i810 works for me too. Actually I had disabled desktop icons which was the cause for trouble.

Thank you for the help.

That doesn't really make sense.

I have the same card and I got it to work rather easily with the i810 driver.

Here is an excerpt from my xorg.conf file:

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "** Intel i810 (generic)               [i810]"
    Driver      "i810"
    VideoRam    262144
    Option "DRI"  "true"
    Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
    Option "AIGLX" "true"
EndSection

Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection
I do remember getting similar errors when starting compiz-fusion with the compiz command. That all went away when I started using fusion-icon.
