OpenSUSE Hardware :: Video With 11.4 32 Bit & The Intel 865 Graphics Controller - Disable "Desktop Effects"/XGL/compiz?

May 1, 2011

Just put 11.4, 32 bit on a system with an Intel D865 GLC motherboard and 865G built in graphics controller. While the install went OK it turns out that X is totally hosed. After fighting with things for a while and discovering that Sax2 had disappeared I poked at Google and discovered some other poor folks that have had similar issues with Intel video cards. Based on a suggestion for a doc in OpenSuse.org I edited the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf

and added the line: Driver "intel" to it - after that things got better. Obviously the install process had not identified the video card correctly. I'm now left with another issue - while the system now identifies the driver and can talk to the monitor correctly, a Samsung S23A350H I can't open a window after X comes up and I login - basically the same issue as the unresolved Bug 673873: [Bug 673873] intel [865G] Windows flash rapidly or don't appear if Desktop Effects are on in KDE and GNOME

The workaround is to turn Desktop Effects off but since X doesn't work I can't figure out how to do that. I can't find the gnome-xgl-switch or a xgl-switch that used to exist to do it on the command line so that's out. Someone said you could drop the empty file "disable-compiz" in the ~/.config/compiz directory and that would do it but in 11.4 that directory doesn't exist. how to disable "Desktop Effects"/XGL/compiz or whatever it is now called on the command line in OpenSuse 11.4 without a gui if that is still possible?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lenovo T400 - Intel Video Card And Compiz - Desktop Effects Cannot Be Enabled

Apr 4, 2010

I'm running Karmic Koala 64 bit on my Lenovo T400 laptop with switchable graphics having both Intel and ATI video cards. I've set my bios to use the intel card only and turned the automatic switching off. So far so good, but I'd like to turn on compiz for basic window animations. When I try to start compiz by selecting

Code:

"Appearance Preferences" -> "Visual Effects" -> "Normal"

I get an error message saying "Desktop effects cannot be enabled"

Code:

"System" -> "Administration" -> "Hardware Drivers"

doesn't show any new drivers that could be installed. This was working out of the box when I first installed Karmic Koala a few month ago, but things got messed up when I installed the restricted drivers for my ATI card. Now I can enable compiz if I switch to ATI from my bios settings and install the drivers but I don't want to use it due to high power consumption and I've removed the ATI drivers.

Here is my xorg.conf file:

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intel Integrated Video In Maverick - Can't Enable Desktop Effects

Oct 17, 2010

I am fairly new to Ubuntu, so I'm sorry if I don't include any necessary information. Installed 10.10 rc from CD about 3 days prior to official release and everything was working fine... went about installing software and setting up laptop for use. About one week later, got prompted for upgrade and went ahead through update manager. Now can't enable desktop effects. Right after upgrade had a period where title bars of windows would not display... menus were present, but no title bars, no maximize/minimize/close buttons and no dragging windows to new locations on screen That has since resolved itself. Spent quite awhile searching forums, created xorg.conf at one point, later deleted it.

compiz-check says this:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Graphics - Enable The Desktop Effects

Jan 15, 2010

i just installed this operating system because i've been trying all the linux distrobutions and i've used ubuntu and am used to it, so far i like this operating system i just dont know much about it yet. Here is the problem so far at first i wasnt able to get online then i some how got it to work by using yast. now i'm trying to enable the desktop effects but at first it said that my graphics didnt support it, i have a nvidia geforce 9400gt PCI-E 512MB video card, it works with ubuntu desktop effects with no problem. i noticed that it didnt ask me like in ubuntu something about the drivers not being open source and what not.

so i looked at the hardware information and it said the drivers weren't active so i went to the the nvidia site, downloaded the drivers but they wouldnt install so i found a website that said something about one click install, that wouldn't work. so i found on this forum from someone that i needed to add nvidia in the respetories, so i did, it installed the nvidia software and drivers, the video card is show and now in the hardware it shows the drivers as active. but when i activate desktop effects it asks the yes or no question then flashes after i click yes, the graphics work for one second if that, and then the bar and windows disapear and it goes white, i can still see the mouse then goes back the desktop and acts as if its enabled still but no transparent windows or wobbly windows, so i click close open it and its disabled, and its just a loop everytime i try and enable it, not sure how to post a pic but i took a screen shot of my graphics hardware.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Video With Intel HD 3000 Graphics?

Aug 19, 2011

I recently installed openSUSE on a new Toshiba and i'm getting very choppy video while watching videos on ....., justin.tv, etc. The video is fine as long as I don't full screen. However, when I try to fullscreen a stream on justin.tv or a ..... video, it instantly becomes choppy and video is extremely delayed in relation to the sound. The sound still continues at it's regular pace, however the video lags behind and is just choppy in general.Also, not sure if this helps, but i'm running an i3 2310M.

Ubuntu :: Lost Compiz On Lucid With Intel HD Graphics?

Jul 23, 2010

I honestly have no clue how this happened, but compiz now refuses to start. I discovered that somehow GLX had been uninstalled and replaced by SWX (the software rasterizer - this gives Brian Paul as the OpenGL/GLX server vendor strings). Reinstalled GLX, currently have Direct Rendering and the proper vendor strings (SGI and Tungsten, I believe).Still nothing. OpenGL seems to be working fine, as Nexuiz runs pretty well.I tried running compiz --replace from the terminal to get any errors, but it just spits out "Falling back to default window manager", without so much as a hex code to tell me why--------Update---------Ran compiz --debug --replace to see if I could get anything else. It gives the following:Quote:taintsauce@the-****ing-fury:~$ compiz --replace --debugcompiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /home/taintsauce/.compiz/plugins/libcore.so : No such file or directorycompiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /usr/lib/c

OpenSUSE :: When Run Tvtime With The Desktop Effects Enabled Xorg - Compiz And Tvtime Use A Lot Of Cpu

Jul 16, 2010

When I run tvtime with the desktop effects enabled Xorg, compiz and tvtime use a lot of cpu. It's even worse with tvtime in full screen. This doesn't happen with the desktop effects off or when I use vlc for example. The system is a 3GHz P4 Prescott, 1.7GB Ram, Nvidia FX5500. I'm running 11.3 with the nvidia video driver (173.14.27).

Fedora :: Setup Desktop Effects With Compiz?

Jan 2, 2010

When trying to set up desktop effects with Compiz I get this message: Accelerated 3D graphics is not available Desktop effects require hardware 3D support.

I have used Fedora 10 last year and the 3D effects worked fine. I have a Nvidia Geforce 6100 video. I also have another hdd on the PC with Mandriva 2010 which I use and the 3D compiz effects work fine. I'm running Omega 12. Isn't it Fedora 12 w/ codecs added? isn't video detection the same?

Ubuntu :: No Desktop Effects And Non-functioning Compiz

Feb 22, 2010

So I was messing around on my laptop this morning and I noticed that my desktop effects were turned off. So i decided to turn them on but as soon as i pressed the "normal" option a pop up opens up and says "searching for drivers" then the screen flickers and finally it tells me "desktop effects cannot be enabled". Also my compizconfig wasn't functioning. for exmaple: I turn on wobble windows and nothing happens. No wobble windows.

Ubuntu :: Get Compiz / Desktop Effects Working?

Jul 2, 2010

I hope this is the correct section. I have recently updated to 10.04 and now Compiz/desktop effects wont work. When I try to turn visual effects on I get a message saying they could not be enabled. I'm a bit new to all this so not sure if I'm doing something wrong.I've looked at many threads regarding this problem and nothing they say has worked. iv tried using Hardware Drivers (in systems administration) but this says "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system".

Also I don't know whether this effects anything but when I open NVIDIA X Server Settings (in systems administration) i get a message saying "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."Does anyone know how I can get Compiz/desktop effects working?.

General :: Compiz And Desktop Effects On Netbook With External Monitor

Jan 28, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire One AO150 and am having trouble plugging in an external monitor under Ubuntu 9.10. There were no problems under 9.04. If I plug in an external monitor once the machine is already up, then bring up the 'display' application to activate it, it basically hangs. There are no problem under these circumstances if I have desktop effects turned off.

A few more details after a question below. The machine does not respond to its keyboard commands to switch to an external monitor, nor does it respond to Ctrl-Alt-F1, etc to switch out of X. The pointer is visible on the monitors (at the edge of each) and is frozen as a 'busy' cursor, but with no animation. The kernel does respond to SysReq commands (REISUB).

In the latest attempt I had the external monitor active earlier, then removed it and activated desktop effects. Upon plugging in the eternal monitor then bringing up the display application, it hangs.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 On Intel Core I5 With Integrated Graphics + Intel H55 Express Chipset

Aug 18, 2010

! I'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intel´┐Ż 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...

I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Intel HD Graphics (Intel Core I3) With Suse 11.3 - Poor Resolution

There is only one remaining issue : I get a very poor resolution (1280x1024) instead of the 1920x1080 allowed by the screen. The graphic card is an intel chipset (HD graphics) integrated to an intel core i3 CPU. Here is (part of) the X11.org log :

Fedora Hardware :: No 3d Support For ATI GPU Graphics In The Desktop Effects?

I'm unable to use 3d accelerated graphics in the desktop effects. I'm getting the infamous 'Desktop Effects require hardware 3d support' error. My GPU is an ATI Radeon HD 5670, and I've already tried the proprietary driver from ATI. It hung my system and gave me loads of issues, and to be frank, the ATI driver has NEVER worked for me. I'm using 32-bit Fedora 14, but if I remember correctly the 64 bit version of Fedora 14 did let me do this without an installer.
