OpenSUSE :: 11.2 Bizarre KDE Window Get Stuck With Desktop Effects Turned On

Feb 20, 2010

when using desktop effects windows seem to get stuck in mid-animation and produce ghost windows which will disappear and go back to normal if i click on a blank area of the desktop.Its not a huge problem, everything else works really well and the issue goes away when i turn the desktop effects off. was wondering if anyone else has seen this?? I am running SLI on quad nvidia gpus so maybe this is a driver issue??

Fedora :: Desktop Effects Turned Off?

Nov 20, 2010

After I updated to KDE 4.5.3 in Fedora 13 I've had 2 things stop starting up when I boot up. They were working fine before the KDE update.

The first is desktop effects. I turn it on, but once I reboot then desktop effects are disabled again. When I turn them on I get a KWin message that it has been turned off by another application. How can I find out which application that is and why?

The second is Yakuake, which I want to start automatically when I boot up. I don't see where I can set it up to start automatically (and I don't remember how I did it before, or if it was automatic when I installed it).

UPDATE: I just found the autostart configuration and added Yakuake. It worked, now it runs whenever I start.

OpenSUSE :: Disable KDE Desktop Effects On A Single Window / Application?

Aug 17, 2010

When Desktop Effects are enabled in KDE the window for Tecplot 'bleeds' through, as if ~40% transparent in various regions. Disabling desktop effects fixes this, however, I would like to keep them. Is there a way to disable desktop effects on a single window/application?

OpenSUSE :: Desktop Effects Switch Off If Window Opens Maximized?

Aug 6, 2011

If any window opens initially on full screen (maximized) the "desktop effects" switch off. I then have to reset "enable desktop effects".

It happens with any window from any application that opens full screen.

If a window is maximized after it has already opened all is fine, it does not stop the desktop effects.

Running: openSUSE 14.4

Ubuntu :: Stuck With Human-clearlooks Window Controls When Using Compiz Effects?

Sep 2, 2010

I cannot change my window controls to Ambiance theme when compiz effects are on. When I turn off compiz effects, theme selection works as a charm, but when I turn compiz effects on again, I get back to human-clearlooks. In Appearance Preferences -> Theme I can still see Ambiance is selected, but window controls are from human-clearlooks. Every theme changes only colors, icons, fonts etc, but window controls remain. And remain on the right side of window. Everything works as expected when I turn off compiz effects.

In CompizConfig Settings Manager -> Effects -> Window Decoration Command is specified to /usr/bin/compiz-decorator What can I do to have buttons of the left side? I tried to change in gconf-editor in apps -> metacity -> general -> button_layout to "close,minimize,maximize:menu", but it still has no effect on compiz

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - VNC Window Size Stuck At 1024X768

Apr 16, 2010

I have 11.2 32 bit running in ESXi on a Dell 2850 in my colo and its working just fine. I even set the VM to allow large resolutions and am running the console at 1440x900. At first I also had the issue with just a black screen and white X pointer, but after reading I found that going into YaST > etc/sysconfig > Desktop > Display Manager > Setting of: DISPLAYMANAGER_REMOTE_ACCESS: > and changing the value from yes to no then back to yes again then rebooting, all was good.

Now on to my actual issue. Now that I can get to my system remotely via RealVNC and don't have to keep an open session logged in (ala Remote Desktop) I am finding that the window is stuck at 1024x768. I just cant find where I need to change the geometry settings to make it 1440 x 900 like my console window is in ESXi. Have been doing a lot of reading and have tried a bunch of stuff but none of it works, too much to list. I am obviously missing something and its probably really simple, but I am just not getting it.

OpenSUSE :: KDE Desktop Effects Cannot Revert To OpenGL

Jan 27, 2011

Last night I was playing around with Desktop Effects and set the composting engine to Xrender, it was openGL. And things started to slow down tremendously. There is now lag on Alt+F1, lag when mousing over hidden taskbar, lag when moving windows, etc. I was trying to get rid of a trail of images when moving windows around. I created more problems. Things got even better when I tried to change back to openGL:

"Failed to activate desktop effects using the given configuration options. Setting will be reverted back to previous values. Check your X configuration. You may also consider changing advancde options, especially changing the composting type." The same thing happens when I click on "Default", the default options disable desktop effects.

OpenSUSE :: Directly Enable 11.3 X64 KDE Desktop Effects

Feb 13, 2011

I've a question about KDE desktop effects. How do I directly enable KDE desktop effects in KDE? Now I have to enable Gnome desktop effects, then KDE desktop effects will be enabled. When I select "enable desktop effects" and press "OK" in KDE, it will tell me "... X configuration ..." something. What the hell is that? I never met this problem in Gnome. Is it a KDE's bug?

OpenSUSE :: Distorted Fonts With Desktop Effects?

Apr 11, 2011

I'm getting this weird behavior when I have Desktop Effects enabled. When it is on, it's like there are two or three vertical and horizontal lines running across my screen that distort any of certain font characters that are under them. In some cases these characters are trimmed slightly, in others they have an odd skew to them, and in still others the letters are completely removed/missing/invisible. With Desktop Effects disabled, everything appears as normal. I have attached a screenshot in which you can see there are at least three letters missing from the left side (Desktop Effects enabled) and not from the right side (Desktop Effects disabled). There is a missing 'l,' a trimmed 't,' and a distorted 'p.' I'm on a one-week-old 11.4 install with nVidia drivers installed from that repo.

As far as I can tell, Desktop Effects works with few other issues, although there are some aggravating ones (having to click task tray items multiple times to get a response, multiple windows highlighted in the menu bar as though they all had focus, etc) that I will look into once I get this one key issue taken care of.If any other diagnostic information might be useful, please let me know and I will provide ASAP.

OpenSUSE :: Lost KDE Desktop Effects After Updates

Aug 27, 2011

I am Running opensuse 11.4 (64 bit) KDE desktop with all the updates & proprietary ATI driver installed. My processor is Athlon II X2 250 & motherboard is gigabyte MA785GPM-UD2H. I have 4 GB (2 +2) of DDR 2 RAM installed. I have turned off automatic updating & usually update my machine once a week. But just couple of days ago I had just updated my system and KDE desktop effects stopped working!!

I went to the Application launcher -> Configure Desktop -> Desktop Effects and everything was grayed out!! except for the following message Desktop effects are not available on this system due to the following technical issues:"

But, what technical Issue?? there was nothing else written! Googling for the issue has actually left me more confused; but I am still posting the content of my ~/.kde4/share/config/kwinrc file

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Enable Desktop Effects

Apr 7, 2010

When I first installed OpenSuse, the sound and video drivers worked fine. But now, even after a new install and some basic driver-installation procedures, I can't get either one to work properly: I can't enable desktop effects (and when I try, metacity window decorations become invisible), and sound doesn't play through my headphones. I know the headphones are fine because they work on my Sansa, and I know general sound is fine because sounds work when I just use my laptop's speakers, but both combined somehow simply don't work.

I have a Dell Studio 15, and my output of lspci:

Code:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 PCI Express Root Port (rev 03)
00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 (rev 04)

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Can't Get Desktop Effects To Work

I have tried just about every thing I can find to get this to work on my laptop but have had no luck.Now this is the weird thing I can boot a Live CD of openSUSE 11 Gnome and make the Desktop Effects work no problem, but installing ATI drivers and unstalling ATI drivers still will not let the Desktop Effects work. I have tried all that I know and here are the xorg confs from both.

SUSE :: Enabling Desktop Effects In Opensuse 11.3

Aug 14, 2010

I am a new user, and installed opensuse 11.3 on my desktop pc about a week ago, now the problem with my computer is this that the graphical performance is very slow, I have Intel Pentium 4 2.8 Ghz processor, with 512 mb ram plus a shared graphic card memory of 32 mb on an IBM thinkcentre. The default graphic driver loaded (as seen through YASt hardware information) is i915 while I read somewhere that default driver for this accelerator is intel. I get about 60 FPS on Glx gears while after applying vesa it goes to about 200 FPS. With default driver the CPU usage is head aching. I created a manual xorg.conf file via Xorg -configure command and set the driver intel and then intellegacy with gaining no boost in performance. The glxinfo says 3D Rendering being enabled while KWIN's desktop effects are too slow and laggy. The CPU keeps working at about 70-100% while movies on ..... and vlc/kaffeine are being played unsmoothly. On the same system, the Kubuntu Live 8.04 gives 500 FPS in glxgears.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 - Desktop Effects Not Supported On Current Hardware

Oct 14, 2010

I have a Nvidia GEforce 8400 GS card, and the drivers from the Nvidia repository. When I try to enable Desktop Effects, I'm told that "Desktop effects are not supported on your current hardware / configuration." Clicking no, something starts using up 90-100% CPU, I can't tell what the rogue process is, top only shows the gconf daemon using 10-11% CPU. I have to log off to end it. What's up with the card not being supported? I can't find a list, but I'm sure this is new enough to be included. Is there a way other than top to trace the rogue application? I've never seen anything like this before, top has always been reliable. I have Gnome 2.30 on openSUSE 11.3.

OpenSUSE :: Weird KDE Desktop Effects Caused By Down Arrow Key

Sep 6, 2011

I have a logitech coreless keyboard that has always "just worked" and I've lived without programming any keys, no factory. no tumbleweed, recent fresh re-install of 11.4, updated generally and with kde 4.6.5, xorg 7.6, nvidia driver 275.21 Mysteriously, the down arrow key no longer works as it should, (up, left, right are fine)

Rather it has the effect of crashing the transparent task manager and adjusting the focus of open windows. If I repeatedly hit the down arrow key the focus toggles and then transparency is re-enabled. The best way I can describe the effect is that it is as if I were using [tab] to toggle through a text based menu (e.g., YaST launch in terminal mode)

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.
