Default Re: Can't enable Desktop Effect after upgrading to snv_111

It looks identical to yours. The only difference is they started it with the command "compiz-bin, it's basically the same, compiz is a shell script to start "compiz-bin". So we established you have the same problem, so you should require the same solution.

At the root prompt enter:

# svccfg -s application/opengl/ogl-select setprop options/vendor=nvidia
# svcadm restart application/opengl/ogl-select

This time I discovered an error with the previous post. The word application doesn't end with an "s". If you look at the previous posts there was an "s" showing as "applications". So just copy and paste the above entry and you should be good.
Hello Paulgress,

amazing! now the Desktop Effect works, Thanks Paul, I have wasted you too much time.
