compiz


i know there is already a compiz thread going on but i have a different issue...

i am trying to run compiz with xfce in a fresh slackware 12 install. i have removed the included compiz package and installed both the compiz and libwnck packages on robby w's site.

Code:
bash-3.1$ glxinfo | grep render
libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R300 20060815 x86/MMX/SSE2 TCL
this is the output i get:
Code:
bash-3.1$ compiz --replace decoration wobbly fade minimize cube move place resize rotate scale switcher water zoom gtk-window-decorator &
[1] 14471
bash-3.1$ libGL warning: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x4b
compiz: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is not supported by direct rendering context, trying indirect rendering context instead
compiz: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

The same here but I have not yet investigated it too much. What I've figured out so far it seems XOrg's current ati driver doesn't yet support OpenGL GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension. The only solution was to force the use of indirect(software,slow) rendering by setting LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT environment variable. Something like:
Code:
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 compiz --replace decoration wobbly fade minimize cube move place resize rotate scale switcher water zoom
Hope there's some better solution for ATI cards.

there are some settings at the compiz website that they recommend for your xorg.conf file which are missing from your xorg.conf file. Maybe that'll help
