Hmm... I may be wrong, but is this message tells You, that there is a problem with one of the graphic files used by cube plugin. The file is named "freedesktop.png" and is used as a top cap for the desktop cube. The file may be changed in cube's settings and accepted are png or svg images.
Best regards

But it's still a harmless warning and won't impact whether or not the cube actually works.

not to start a new thread, I would like to test compiz but I can't get it to work.

In my xorg.conf I only have
Code:
~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
        Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "Module"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        Option      "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
        Option      "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
        Option      "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Driver      "fglrx"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
        Device     "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
        Monitor    "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
        EndSubSection
EndSection
No matter whether I run
Code:
compiz --replace ccp&
or
Code:
compiz --replace ccp emerald --replace
I get windows without decorations (no titlebars) and following errors:
Code:
:~$ compiz: /usr/lib64/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by compiz)
compiz: /usr/lib64/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by compiz)
compiz (core) - Error: Plugin 'text' not loaded.

compiz (thumbnail) - Warn: No compatible text plugin found.
There was a guide on compiz fusion forums how to set properly ati card but now I can't find it. I tried adding different sections to xorg.conf such as extensions composite enable etc. but it doesn't work either.
I use Slackware13 x64 with multilib and fglrx drivers 10.2, all compiz packages I complied by myself using slackbuilds posted in this thread.

Have you checked that the window decoration plugin is enabled? Some essential plugins you should always check for before starting compiz are "resize window", "move window" and "window decoration". If you have emerald installed, place 'emerald' in the Command field in the window decoration plugin, and then try starting compiz again with 'compiz --replace ccp &'... Actually, given that you are using fglrx, I would recommend, 'compiz --replace --indirect-rendering ccp &'

The errors regarding libxml do have me intrigued, though, as I've never seen them before.

I ticked all necessary plugins in ccsm and replaced kde4 window decorator with emerald in decorator plugin. After that kde complained about libpng being outdated so I updated them (with compat) from current. Then there were errors that application was compiled with old libpng and now it is newer and kde crashed. I will rebuild compiz packages later but so far the output is:
Code:
~$ compiz --replace --indirect-rendering ccp &
[1] 7333
janas@slackware:~$ compiz: /usr/lib64/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by compiz)
compiz: /usr/lib64/libxml2.so.2: no version information available (required by compiz)
compiz (core) - Error: Plugin 'text' not loaded.

compiz (ring) - Warn: No compatible text plugin found.
compiz (core) - Error: Plugin 'text' not loaded.

compiz (thumbnail) - Warn: No compatible text plugin found.

here is a patch for compiz

http://www.mail-archive.com/pld-cvs-...msg210781.html

Just apply the patch and recompile compiz and you should be set.

If I had to guess, I'd say that most/all of your problems here stem from running different packages from different versions.

to be more precise I've installed from -current only ntfs-3g, compiz and libpng packages. The rest is from stock 13.

Hi Daedra,

Thanks for mentioning the patch. I'm using Slackware -current (13.1) with XFCE on Intel GM45.

I've been a long time Slackware user but got recently interested in compiz and spent past two days hunting this thing like crazy. I have build all the packages by hand and everything went fine except I won't get any window borders.

I had the png image plugin enabled in ccsm but whenever I start compiz, I won't get any window borders and starting from console would sometimes give me an symbol undefined error for libpng.

I also found a libpng 1.4.x patch for compiz here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/pld-linux/+bug/522344

Once I rebuilt compiz, I've everything working perfectly.

Just want to confirm that you either have to disable the png image plugin in ccsm or apply this patch (and keep the png plugin enabled) for compiz to work.

Thanks for a useful guide.

hey guys in having an issue w/ a Slack64 compiz install any help?

trying to install CF in the order above and getting this error:
Code:
checking for CCS... configure: error: Package requirements (libcompizconfig >= 0.6.99 glib-2.0 >= 2.6 ) were not met:

No package 'libcompizconfig' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables CCS_CFLAGS
and CCS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
Yet I did install libcompizconfig first.... noob needing a little help, thx.

Code:
bash-3.1# installpkg /tmp/libcompizconfig-0.7.8-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz 
Verifying package libcompizconfig-0.7.8-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz.
Installing package libcompizconfig-0.7.8-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz:
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:
# libcompizconfig (a configuration system for compiz)
# 
# CompizConfig is an alternative configuration system for
# compiz.
# 
Executing install script for libcompizconfig-0.7.8-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz.
Package libcompizconfig-0.7.8-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz installed.
