kde4.2 and slackware 12.2
today i had installed kde4.2 in my slack box.
My slack with dri on and glxgears working great, but when a try to activate the effects in kde tells me this
Failed to activate desktop effects using the given configuration options. Settings will be reverted to their previous values.
Check your X configuration. You may also consider changing advanced options, especially changing the compositing type.
tha line composite in my xorg.conf exist
thanx a lot
bash-3.1$ fgrep -i5 composite /var/log/Xorg.0.log

hmm .. I don't see anything wrong -- file a bug report ?:)
A usefull example is better than day in class
a useful example of a command is so much better than reading the man page for fgrep all day
whenever an 'expert' tells a poster to run a certain command I always go to a terminal and run that command on my system. I helps me to understand the command so much better than reading the man page
Thanks and regards,
The 4.2 version of KDE is not available for Slackware 12.2 - it is for Slackware current which is different. You need to build 4.2 from source on Slackware 12.2 (a big job) or upgrade to Slackware current - instructions should be on this forum somewhere.
You may get current's 4.2 working but it's not recomended to mix versions.
