Starting Desktop Effects fails FC6 - Missing RPM?
 
Hey guys, I've gotten desktop effects working flawlessly on my desktop and am trying to do the same on my laptop. However, I am getting an error. And just as a note I had compiz and xgl working flawlessly on my laptop in fc5 so I know it supports it. I also know that FC6 uses compiz and aiglx but I also know that is supported as well.

Here is the error, this is probably something really simple so please don't make me feel too dumb... :D Thanks all...

[root]# desktop-effects
compiz: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
gnome-window-decorator: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a decoration manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current decoration manager.
Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".

Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".
[root]# Xlib: extension "SHAPE" missing on display ":0.0".

I've tried desktop-effects --replace and got nothing.
and also
gnome-window-decorator --replace and it just sits there...

anyway thanks for your help.

you should try going to yum and possibly remove compiz then re-install it. perhaps a dependency was left out.

good idea but unfortunately, it didn't work...
Anyone got any other ideas?

Ive gotten through a lot of my errors but I'm now stuck at the following:

gnome-window-decorator: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" already has a decoration manager; try using the --replace option to replace the current decoration manager.
compiz: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No managable screens found on display :0.0


anyone got any ideas?

thanks

in your xorg.conf, did you add

Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

under section "Device" ?

Also, I'd recommend you install beryl and use that instead if compiz. Beryl allows you to change themes, for one thing.

I put the option you suggested into my xorg.conf and im afraid I got the same error.

Here is my xorg.conf

Ive never heard of beryl but I'll look into it.

----------------------------------------------------

Well just took a look at Beryl and found this


"Fedora Core 6 is shipped with X.Org 7.1 and therefore with AIGLX. Make sure that you use graphic card drivers which are working with AIGLX"

So I need to get compiz and aiglx working first before I go to install Beryl. Anyone who will work with me is awsome!!!

Two Device sections?

I have nvidia myslelf, and I currently need to use beta-drivers in order to use aiglx.

Fresbeeplayer 01-26-2007 10:22 AM

just add Load "extmod" to the right section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf

nomb 01-26-2007 10:28 AM

actually that wont make a difference. AIGLX isn't supported by the fglrx drivers.

3D acceleration works out of compiz? For example some opengl games, or glxgears?
If the problem is only AIGLX, you can disable it putting
Option "AIGLX" "0"
in ServerLayout section
