Question Please help! Compiz don't wanna run my computer!! ;(


Hi,

I have big problems with Compiz, it just wont work! I have read on the Internet for hours and I just don't seems to get it right.. =/

First here is some info about my computer and grafik card:

HP pavilion w5500

Athlon 64 X2 (W) 5000+ 2.6 GHz
Memory Installed 2 GB
ATI Radeon x1600XT (HyperMemory)

* 512 MB DDR3 memory
* I/O Ports: DVI-I out, DIV-I/VGA out, S-Video/Composite out

Link with full specs:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...28176&lang=en#
(don't know how to make it shorter...)

First I have followed this tutorial:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...eocard-584645/

After I had everything on that one I ran the script:
LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=true compiz --replace ccp && emerald &

Then all the windowdecorations disapairs and KDE are more or less useless... After some searching I ran "kwin -replace" and everthing started to work again, but compiz is still not working! =S

Before I tested it added:
"
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "enable"
EndSection
"
To the bottom of the xorg.conf file but that did not solve my problem...

And the tutorial were for Nvida cards... and becuase of thet I didn't followed step 4:
"
nvidia-xconfig --composite
"

Instead I have search for things for ATI-card and found some info at compiz.org, "http://www.compiz.org/ATI" I added the things from there, but still no compiz.... ;(

Copy of my xorg.conf:

If you want to run Compiz like that you'll have to get the latest version (you can get packages from slacky.eu or you can download and compile the sources). It provides more utilities, including a settings manager. If you want to just use the (old, unstable) version included with Slackware 12.0, you'll have to start Compiz differently (like the following):
Code:
$ compiz --replace decoration wobbly fade minimize cube move place resize rotate scale switcher water zoom &
If your window decorations disappear, then run
Code:
$ kde-window-decorator &
Your kwin --replace command restore KDE to its natural goodness and disables compiz -- the CORRECT command to use is the one above (kde-window-decorator &).

Good luck. Try searching the forums -- there are a few good threads about Compiz.

one thing you could try is choosing the window decorator using the compiz fusion icon, i got as far as windows with no borders then doing that to enable emerald seemed to work

Forgot to say that... I have already installed all the new packages from slacky.eu... Still I cant get it upp and running.. =/

I'm trying to first do this

LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=true compiz --replace ccp && emerald &

and then

kde-window-decorator &

But it doest work... =/

Edit:
Should also say that I can open "Emerald theme manager" and "CCSM", but they I run the script above everything freezes.... =(

What am I doing wrong or what is wrong???

make sure you have this in your fstab and mount it.

Code:
tmpfs	/dev/shm  tmpfs    defaults  0   0
I was looking at all the options in your "Device" section most of those are on by default, I don't think most of those options are needed. Backup your current xorg.conf and try this one. I cleaned it up a bit so it is more manageable and added some things you need. Look over it though to notice the changes or if I left something out.

Code:

Hi and thanks for the replies!

@agentc0re

You gave me "git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/users/crdlb/fusion-icon" and I have tried to search and find out how to get that but I'm a little confused, cant find how to download/install it..? =/

@symatic

I added the
Code:
tmpfs	/dev/shm  tmpfs    defaults  0   0
as you said but now then I try to start compiz (with my old xorg.conf) it all just gets black... =S

Sorry bout that, I see the error with the file.
Replace this:
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "X.org Configured"
	Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
With this:
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"	
        Identifier     "Simple Layout"
	Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
Give it a try now.

The line I told you add to your fstab is needed by the ati driver for opengl(3d rendering). One way to test this is once you give X started is run "fglrxinfo" in a terminal. If it says ATI..etc, good to go. If it says mesa you are using software rendering and this is not a good thing.

Well, lets start the process over, a clean slate.

from the init3(not X) lets do this. This must be done as root( no su).

run "xorgsetup" this will set you up with a decent xorg.conf file. Then do "aticonfig --initial". At this point lets make sure we can "startx". If so we are doing good so far. Lets go ahead and edit the xorg.conf with the following entries.

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "on"
EndSection

Sometimes it is just better to start over. If xorgsetup says something like fglrx driver not found(which it has happened to me before). You will have to uninstall it reboot and start the process over. To uninstall the driver if you did not use the --buildpkg Slackware option is in the /usr/share/ati directory. Something like sh ./uninstall...etc, you will see the file. If you need to install it again please issue a --listpkg with the installer it will give you the option to make a .tgz(slackware pkg). Makes it easier to admin the driver. It will give you a X server pkg and a module pkg which is specific to your kernel. Tell me what happens and I'm sorry if I confused you during the process.

I tried to do a new xorg.conf using xorgsetup but something goes wrong and it cant finish it.. =/ tried to use xorgconfig instead but got stuck at the part about the screen... But is the first original xorg.conf good enough? cause I have saved a new backup for all the changes I have done... So I have a copy of the first one.

Another thing a notied right now then I was switching between the sessions was that at tty1 it comes a lot of stuff all the time, but pretty often this comes:

"/bin/bash: nvida-settings: command not found"

I just thought that it look weird when I have an ATI grafik card...

Right now I feel that I just wont it to work.......... puh.. =/ And about all that you wrote in the end, the ATI-driver I downloaded directly from ATIs homepage and after that a ran the ".run" script and installed it...
