Compiz Fusion only work in indirect rendering mode ASUS Eee

Postby Sanva on Thu Sep 04, 2008 4:18 am

Hi!

I have my Linux Mint running in an Asus Eee 900. When I installed Linux Mint, Compiz Fusion works fine, but now it doesn't. I really don't know what I have done, but now it only works if I use Fusion Icon to reload it.

Well... I'll write you my steps and the output of Fusion Icon, maybe you could see something relevant:

1. I turn my computer on. It's supposed to have to run compiz, but never happens and I have no effects.

2. I open a terminal and run fusion-icon. It outputs

* Detected Session: gnome
* Searching for installed applications...
* Intel detected, exporting: INTEL_BATCH=1
* No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with direct rendering context
... present with indirect rendering, exporting: LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1
* Using the GTK Interface
* Starting Compiz
... executing: compiz.real --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp --indirect-rendering
compiz.real (core) - Error: Could not acquire compositing manager selection on screen 0 display ":0.0"
compiz.real (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0


and next the window's decorations go out and I can't move windows or change the workspace.

3. I right-click fusion-icon in the notification area and I select Reload Window Manager. It outputs

* Reloading compiz
... executing: compiz.real --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp --indirect-rendering

GConf backend: There is an unsupported value at path /apps/compiz/plugins/scale/allscreens/options/initiate_edge. Settings from this path won't be read. Try to remove that value so that operation can continue properly.


and next I have window's decorations, compiz effects, etc.

The problems are: To need to do all of this every time I turn on my computer and the option --indirect-rendering.

I have reinstalled Linux Mint –saving my /home partition, of course– but the problem persists...

Do you know what could I do??

Thanks for your time.

I think this could be the answer
No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Seems that there's some mismatch as you obviously have a working screen
Post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
And you did not say which version of Mint

It says
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Xandros"

and the original Linux is Xandros but maybe this is misplaced in the Mint context - and where did it come from?

It comes from the Internet, but I don't remember from which page: Few months ago I had some problems with xorg.conf (I think that the problems appears after an incorrect shutdown) and I couldn't fix it, so I copy one from an Asus Eee 900 user from a web page.

It could be a good idea if one of you show me their xorg.conf to look for differences.

Could someone help me??

I really need help with my xorg.conf, because I'm having a lot of performance problems with my Asus Eee and I don't know if it could be fault of a xorg.conf misconfiguration –Previously I could run Firefox even with 20-30 tabs and everything works, more or less, fine, but now it is really slow with two or three.

Thanks for your time.

You have a lot of Section Display I just discovered
Here is an obviously working xorg.conf but only 800x480.
I have not even seen an ASUS Eee not to talk of tinkered with one....
Code: Select all
# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
