{Daryna}Problem with CompizFuzion

Postby DimitrisZ » Thu Nov 01, 2007 11:39 am

Hi guys,
How's all the mint going?
Look, I have an ATI HD2600 Pro graphic card and today I installed the latest
drivers (using ENVY).
From what I've heard these drivers provide 3D Accelaration and the ability
to run Compiz/Beryl.
But when I try to enable Compiz Fuzion on Daryna, I get an error message
saying: "The Composite extension is not available".
What do I have to do to enable this extension and make Compiz run

Check your xorg.conf file and see if composite extensions and/or AIGLX have been disabled.

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Look for anything similar to this:

Code: Select all

Section "Extensions"
     Option     "Composite"     "0" # 0, disable, false, etc...

Same for anything mentioning AIGLX. I haven't tried the latest Envy, but Envy used to disable those by default. If you find those sections you can delete them or comment them out.

Aloha, Tim
