Quote:
Compiz requires direct rendering to work

so please don't bother posting saying compiz doesn't work unless you have direct rendering working .

To test

Code:
glxinfo |grep direct
The result should be

Code:
[root@localhost leigh]# glxinfo |grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
[root@localhost leigh]#
Instructions for F11, F12 & F13

1. Install the compiz-fusion-release rpm

Code:
su
yum -y erase *compiz*
rpm -ivh http://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/compiz-fusion-release-1-8.noarch.rpm
If this fails try

Code:
su
yum -y erase *compiz*
yum -y install wget
wget http://leigh123linux.fedorapeople.org/compiz-fusion-release-1-8.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh compiz-fusion-release-1-8.noarch.rpm
rm -f compiz-fusion-release-1-8.noarch.rpm
2. Install compiz-fusion ( you will need to delete the old compiz configuration files /home/username/.gconf/apps/compiz ) (For F12 use the yum commands in post #2 as I have changed the packaging scheme to match fedora)


For a Gnome compiz install

Code:
su
yum -y --noplugins install compiz-gnome fusion-icon-gtk compiz-bcop ccsm emerald-themes compizconfig-backend-gconf compiz-plugins-unsupported compiz-plugins-extra

Make sure you remove ALL compiz packages installed. I missed libcompiz* and had to find it. Then DL the correct package from Leigh above, extract and CD to that file and "rpm -i *" will install everything. I then successfully dumped my old config files back in so my setup remains unchanged.

Try

emerald --replace



or select emerald as the window decorator from the drop down fusion-icon menu

After uninstalling Fedora's packages, deleted the config files, and installed the 64-bit packages, I got hard lockups on my keyboard & touchpad within minutes of logging in. I uninstalled the packages and everything's fine now. When I have more time, I'll try to figure the problem out.

Just tried to update kmod-nvidia and noticed that there is a new kernel coming out but isnt in the repo's yet.

I'm assuming that we will have to reinstall when we update to the latest kmod ? I think that question was answered in another thread but couldnt find it.

Thumbs up

Thanks Leigh. I have been beating my head against a wall all day today trying to get compiz to work from the stock install. I could turn on desktop effects, but would immediately lose the window controls as others have mentioned in other threads.

I finally gave up and wiped the stock compiz (and all the parts I installed trying to get it to work) off the machine, downloaded your files and installed them. It went as smooth as butter, and I now am happy with the desktop effects.

Stephen

Edit after a reboot:

Woe is me, for my desktop effects are undone! I rebooted the system, and encountered a random effect in that I could not launch anything from the task bar. I found that I could launch the Compiz Fusion Icon, and than use that to switch back to Metacity, which restored the desktop behavior to normal. I am quite frustrated with Compiz at this point.

Stephen

Still can not get windows decorations and others. Here is what I have.
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# fusion-icon
 * Detected Session: gnome
 * Searching for installed applications...
 * No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with direct rendering context
 ... nor with indirect rendering, this isn't going to work!
 * Using the GTK Interface
 * Decorator "" is invalid.
 * Setting decorator to Emerald ("emerald --replace")
 * Starting Compiz
 ... executing: compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp
compiz (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
 * Setting decorator to Emerald ("emerald --replace")
 * Reloading compiz
 ... executing: compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp
compiz (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

I have problems running ccp. If I use gconf it works, but ccp gets the eye-candy going (can move the cube, switch windows using alt-tab), but I can't move the windows (i.e. picking them with left mouse and dragging the window around.).'

Nvidia 6600GT (agp) running the livna drivers.

Ideas?
