Is there an easy way to find out if compiz is loading with X starts?

try this after you reboot INTO you x session:
Code:
pstree | grep compiz
EDIT: that way you can see if emrald is running as well. pstree will show whats running and what its a child of or something like that

no that's not emerald running that's just the pid from me running ps aux |grep if emerald was running it would've had two process the actually emerald and the one from ps aux like this when I do a ps aux |grep for sshd

Code:
mark@requiem:~$ ps aux |grep sshd
root      3182  0.0  0.0   4108   976 ?        Ss   11:58   0:00 /usr/sbin/sshd
mark      4169  0.0  0.0   2208   644 pts/0    S+   12:32   0:00 grep sshd
mark@requiem:~$

That's slackware for you though, it's a great stable distro, but the GUI aspect of slackware isn't as great as compared to other distros

i hate to admit it...

but i have too. if you cant get compiz --replace to start compiz or your screen locks up ( indicates that your 3d support is not enabled) then you might check out this compiz in slackware thread

dont hate me...lol. I really am trying to help.

EDIT: how did you install compiz?
