    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
    For a KDE compiz install

    Code:
    su
    yum -y --noplugins install compiz-kde fusion-icon-qt compiz-bcop ccsm emerald-themes compizconfig-backend-kconfig compiz-plugins-unsupported compiz-plugins-extra
    For both KDE & gnome

    Code:
    su
    yum -y --noplugins install compiz-kde compiz-gnome fusion-icon-all compiz-bcop ccsm emerald-themes compizconfig-backend-gconf compizconfig-backend-kconfig compiz-plugins-unsupported compiz-plugins-extra
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ________________________

    xorg.conf options for the intel, nv, radeon & radeonhd drivers ( should help graphics lag and CPU load )

    add to the device section

             Option          "AccelMethod" "EXA"  
             Option          "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"

    Running great now.

    Beautiful, just beautiful. And, so far, stable.

    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.

    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

    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?
