Talking DISABLE desktop effects (In Fedora 8)!

Umm... I know its an odd request but, Compiz Fusion appears to be a little too hardware intensive and buggy for me!

But despite disabling all the effects (via Compiz Config Settings Manager) some of the artifacts/bugs of the program still persist and my computer is running far slower than before I managed to enable desktop effects.

If it helps it would appear I managed to break my Compiz setup as I was experimenting with the ability to draw fire on the screen, and the next minute, window title bars disappeared and everything froze. Since then I have been unable to get any effects to work (despite multiple reboots and restarts of the X server) and this, I think, is the reason why the thing is being so bl**dy difficult!

Any help in resolving this problem will be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks

Try disabling the compositing in the xorg.conf file. This can be done by disabling in the Extensions section the "Composite" option.


compiz, desktop effects, fedora, fusion
