xcompmgr No composite extension


Hi. I have been working around to try to use xcompmgr with xorg. But no matter how I try it just doesnīt work for me. Iīm using slack 10, xorg 6.8.1 I had modify xorg.conf to enable composite and render, I restart my X server several times, but when I want to run xcompmgr in the konsole I get:

surfer@10:/home$ xcompmgr -c
No composite extension

No matter if I run xcompmgr -a, xcompmgr -f, whatever I get the same answer No composite extension. Any help will be very appreciate cause I already search google and found nothing.

Add this to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
Code:
Section "Extensions"
        Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

I'm trying to do basically the same thing as above, but just a quick question: where do I put in the extensions section? I tried adding it to the end of the xorg.conf file but then got an error when I tried to restart X (Fatal Error : No Screens Found). Does this go in the Modules section or somewhere else? Thanks. Oh I'm using Gentoo with Xorg 6.8.0-r3 and xcompmgr 1.1 with an ATI Rage 128 (or something) card. (sorry I didn't realize this was the slackware forum when I first posted but I thought maybe somebody could help nonetheless.)
/Jeremy.

Comicowboy I already had the same issue as you when I was trying to use xcomprg, the problem about the screen not found, in my case, was the section of keyboard. I read that to make xcompgr work you have to change driver or device keyboard, with the word kbd or keyboards, When I change that I was getting the error no screen found. Even if I modify the section of my video card for another like nvidia_driver. In case this help I give you the xorg.conf that works for me, and I copy from an user that post it here in linuxquestions. I must say this xorg.conf only works well under kernel 2.6.x under kernel 2.4.x I donīt know why my mouse donīt work

If your mouse still doesn't work try adding the line:

Code:
Option "CorePointer"
right below where you have

Code:
Driver "mouse"
in your xorg file. that works for me, though I still can't get the wheel to work. Oh and the problem was I put in the "RENDER" option though I don't have nvidia. Hope this works for you.
