AIGLX NVIDIA and Compix - no window decorations

Recommended Posts

I had Compiz working with XGL and 8774 drivers, but upgraded to 9629 drivers from NVIDIA proper and now have to use AIGLX - XGL won't work. Also, in AIGLX, the windows lack the window bars and decorations as well as I can't move them with Alt-drag. Any suggestions what is causing this? Card is Geforce FX AGP 8X/64MB on AMD Athlon XP 3200

Doing some homework - finding out that this probably relates to a gtk-window-decorator or something. Someone recommends installing gnome-window-decorator RPM, just wondering - I'm using KDE, will this be the appropriate RPM?

Ok, now I'm really in trouble - Compiz isn't working at all. Tried some fixes from the Compiz.org discussions, but now it won't launch at all. Manually launching at command line says there's another manager running on screen 0 and no screens available 0:0


# compiz
compiz: Another composite manager is already running on screen: 0
compiz: No managable screens found on display :0.0


I've uninstalled all the nvidia RPMs, uninstalled compiz, ran the pkg1.run file from NVIDIA for 9629 drivers. Verified OpenGL and GLX is running via glxgears and an openGL screensaver and game. Reinstalled compiz RPMs. rebooted, ran drak3d to enable with AIGLX. Won't launch. drak3d to enable with XGL, get a white spash and then nothing but white screens.


As a sidenote, running beryl with beryl-manager also results in the same message, but running beryl with

# beryl

works fine. Personally, I don't like the feel of beryl as much as compiz, so I'd prefer to use compiz.


Any advice?
