compiz (core) - Fatal: No composite extension


Installed the lates compiz-fusion according to this thread:
[HTML]http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/how-to-install-compiz-on-slackware-12-the-simple-way-nvidia-videocard-584645/?highlight=compiz[/HTML]

I can run glxgears fine: 47891 frames in 5.0 seconds = 9578.058 FPS

I run compiz --replace, and I get: compiz (core) - Fatal: No composite extension

Video Card is a 8600GT with the latest Nvidia Driver on a DRI Infinity Board with a Athlon64 X2.

What gives with Slack12? I've tried different setting in xorg.conf to no avail and I know I have the Option "Composite" "Enable"

Am I still missing something in my xorg.conf?

Code:
Section "Module"

# This loads the DBE extension module.
# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
# This loads the font modules
# This loads the GLX module
    Load           "dbe"  	# Double buffer extension
    SubSection     "extmod"
        Option         "omit xfree86-dga"   # don't initialise the DGA extension
    EndSubSection
    Load           "type1"
    Load           "freetype"
    #Load        "speedo"
    Load           "glx"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
    Option         "Xinerama" "0"
EndSection

Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# For most OSs the protocol can be omitted (it defaults to "Standard").
# When using XQUEUE (only for SVR3 and SVR4, but not Solaris),
# uncomment the following line.
#    Option     "Protocol"      "Xqueue"
# Set the keyboard auto repeat parameters.  Not all platforms implement
# this.
#    Option     "AutoRepeat"    "500 5"
# Specifiy which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1)).
#    Option     "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#    Option     "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a European
# keyboard, you will probably want to use one of:
#
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc102"
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc105"
#
# If you have a Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "microsoft"
#
# If you have a US "windows" keyboard you will want:
#
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc104"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#
#    Option     "XkbLayout"     "de"
#
# or:
#
#    Option     "XkbLayout"     "de"
#    Option     "XkbVariant"    "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#
#    Option     "XkbOptions"    "ctrl:swapcaps"
# These are the default XKB settings for X.Org
#
#    Option     "XkbRules"      "xorg"
#    Option     "XkbModel"      "pc105"
#    Option     "XkbLayout"     "us"
#    Option     "XkbVariant"    ""

I don't know wether or not xorg.conf is case sensitive or not, but I have "Composite" "enable" with "e".

I have the lowercase e as well -- try it and see if it works.

I know... it'll sound pretty dumb, but, change the "Enable" from the "Composite" option to "on"... after that restart the X (ctrl-alt-backspace)

I had spend one entire day to solve that... it's working fine right now. Let me know if you couldn't get any success.
