Compiz not working?

Postby AndrewCooper on Fri Jun 27, 2008 9:22 am

I just downloaded Daryna last night and installed it. I'm really liking this distro so far. However, I have run into one minor glitch. None of the advanced visual effects will work on the desktop. I have installed Compiz and I have the Advanced Desktop Effects option in my Preferences menu. I've turned a few of them on. When I go to Appearance --> Visual Effects and click on any option other than None I get the following message...

Composite extension is not available.

I'm not sure what else I need to do to get this to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Did you install the graphics driver?

Yes, I did. I have an ATI driver and Mint found it and installed it with no problems.

Like I said before, I'm enjoying Mint. I'm not princess and moaning about this. The install was very easy and it looks like everything except this one small thing is working right out of the box. I'd just like to get this resolved at some point.

Thanks!
