This is not a question but some comment to help other users to speed up compiz
I have been using compiz since the beginning of times:) but every new opensuse
version has changes that affect how do you set it up. I spent some time to
make this one to work, of course now is very easy.
There is no xorg.conf anymore. X is configured by HAL/autodetection instead of
SaX2. In previous opensuse version often we have to do changes in the
xorg.conf, under opensuse 11.2 there is no more xorg.conf. Read release notes
(YaST and X.Org Configuration (Keyboard, Mouse, Graphics Board, and Monitor)
1. Be sure you have the nvidia modules loaded. You have a nvidia card during
installation most likely you load the opensource nvidia modules, they are
great but they do not work with compiz, so you have to remove those and load
the proprietary drivers.
2. Remove all compiz done with the initial installation
yast/software manager/search compiz and delete all compize stuff
3. Install one click
This will install all kde4 and fusion-icon
4. Install compiz-emerald and themes.
5. Be sure all the version are the same if you have libraries or programs from
previous version remove them. If you have problem do a manual installation and
start with the basic one and then keep adding. I have one of the piece of the
previous version (from the opensuse 11.2 initial installation. This was a
clean installation so there was nothing from 11.1)This drove me nuts, after I
removed it everything worked perfect.
6. Go to configure desktop
and be sure <enable desktops effects> are disable. This is only to activate
kde4 effects. If you want them do not use compiz. One or the other.
/Default Applications/Window Manager/Use a different window manager
select Compiz (NOT Compiz custom....)
7. Restart the X server or reboot and you should have compiz running.
8. To customize it you can use CCSM or fusion-icon.
