    compiz-fusion (on Ubuntu/Gutsy) and 8.42

    Hi all,

    Got the new driver compiled and all, but there's unusable display corruption when using desktop effects.
    Maybe it's using the wrong path?

    I'm just not sure...

    I'm having the same issues with the "No 8 bit GLX pixmap format..." output. I've also noticed that when using the Glide animations for opening and closing windows, they tend to glitch and go black for a moment.

    Hmm. I think I might just do a clean install in a couple days; try out the KDE4 release candidate and such in the process. Thanks for your insights.

    Yep. It's really weird actually. Its actually random though I think. On previous installs, I had to manually set Composite to 1 and remove the AIGLX section b/c it caused graphic corruption and on boot would make me reconfigure my display.

    Last night however, I was curious if the drivers finally released on the ATI site were any different. So I restored my xorg.conf from a backup, downloaded and installed the drivers from the site and neither the AIGLX section nor the composite section are in my xorg.conf and compiz is working fine. Minus the firefox stuff and flickering video.

    You might try removing the driver all together. restoring your xorg.conf. And then reinstalling. I backtracked so many times -_-

    Anyone with ideas on how to fix this?

    i also have a mobility x1400.
    after a few tries i got it working.

    on a fresh install of gutsy, after i installed and configured the ati driver. i checked my xorg.conf and found composite = 0 and no AIGLX section. when i added the AIGLX section it screwed the driver up.

    try setting composite to 1 and removing the AIGLX section. and you said you have the whitelisting done, so that should be it.

    this worked for me. hope it helps.

    wow, i'm actually a bit envious. b/c you at least have the driver installed correctly

    i always get MESA with the 8.42 driver even on a fresh squeaky clean install of gutsy. oddly enough the 8.40 driver worked fine using the exact same guide. anyway. if you have any ideas on THAT problem, i would love to know. sorry for changing topic.

    anyway, i know compiz part of the system now, but when i used it with XGL i manually installed it and got some extra options. might help you. here:s the code:

    sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager compiz compiz-core compiz-fusion-plugins-main compiz-fusion-plugins-extra compiz-gnome compiz-plugins libcompizconfig-backend-gconf libcompizconfig0

    Many people are experencing problems with compiz generally...we still have to understand if this is related to the new AIGLX implementation, to Compiz itself or to an unfortunate marriage
