1 Hello. I have been experimenting with xcomposite in xorg, to enable
2 transparency and other effects.
3 I added this to xorg.conf:
5 Section "Extensions"
6 Option "Composite" "Enable"
7 EndSection
9 and this under the Device section:
10 Option "RenderAccel" "true"
11 Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
13 Things are working fine. I can now call on xcompmgr and transset to enable
14 transparency on windows. However, things are incredibly slow. Only effect
15 that doesn't seem to cause a slowdown are the shadows and menu fading. All
16 the rest, pretty slow.
17 I'm running gnome 2.12 (with metacity), xorg-x11 6.8.2-r5, and nvidia
18 drivers (7676).
19 GLX seems to be working fine (I can run glxgears in composite enabled
20 server).
21 Also, I have experienced a few problems. Firefox window got fully
22 transparent somehow and I couldn't get it back. If I try to log out, the
23 dialog where it asks logout/restart/shutdown doesn't appear also.
24 gnome-panel goes to the back, and windows appear in front of them. Kinda
25 small bugs, but still bugs!
26 Has anyone managed to get it working fine and fast?
