compiz-fusion : Xgl not present...


Hi,
I'm trying to install compiz-fusion on my Debian/etch with AIGLX and KDE 3.5. Direct rendering and composite are both enabled. My Graphic Card is an ATI X1900 GT. But when trying to run
Quote:
compiz-manager --replace
I ever get the message

Checking for Xgl: not present.
How can I run compiz-fusion without Xgl?


My xorg.conf :

Any ideas? I've been searching for solutions for hours and didn't find anything. So, any supposition would be welcome...

Thanks

From what I have read, and I could be mistaken, you have to have XGL with ATI cards.

^^^ DISREGARD ^^^

I just found something that may help you out:


Using the latest ATI proprietary drivers (fglrx) released January 18th, 2008, you should be able to get compiz working quite well. AIGLX is now supported by the driver, and using compiz it is both quite stable and rather fast. If mostly works out-of-the-box, however, you'll need to tweak your xorg.conf a small bit in order to fix a few graphical issues with fonts and icons. Make sure your xorg.conf file has the below in the Device section.

Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        Option      "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
        Option      "EnableDepthMoves"      "on"
        Option      "VideoOverlay"          "on"
        Option      "TexturedVideo"         "True" 
        Option      "TexturedVideoSync"     "True"
EndSection
