I don't know if I should post my question in here viewtopic.php?f=141&t=55107&p=315512&hilit=compiz+debian#p315512 but as I have a different graphics card, I thought I open a new topic...
Compiz doesn't work. I already tried the following:
- compiz --replace &
as I tried this the first time, everything crashed. At first the window decorations disappeared and after that the whole system stuck
- then I have done some settings in the gconftool: apps --> desktop --> gnome --> session --> required_components -----> and there I have set the windowmanager to compiz.
This does not do anything at all. When I now set wobbly windows in the compiz config manager, nothing happens. The system works as before. No wobbly windows, no other effects, I noticed.
Then I had a look into my second computer, which runs Ubuntu and saw that the actual package "compiz" is installed in Ubuntu, but not in LMDE. So I installed it and tried the first command again:
compiz --replace &
this time it gave me
- Code: Select all
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
compiz (core) - Fatal: Root visual is not a GL visual
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
Launching fallback window manager
thats strange. Because on this computer I also have had Fedora up and running and Fedora activates the desktop effects by default, because the Intel driver are in the system - no need to install proprietary stuff like with nvidia or ati.
So what do I have to do to activate desktop effects?
Any hints and tips would be very much appreciated!!
besides that, LMDE is great!!
thanks & regards
