Talking KDE+CF+SLACKWARE 12/Ultimate Compiz Fusion Guide!

This is simple, follow the steps

(Obs: Tested in Slackware 12)
(Obs 2: Make one backup of your X configuration file)

[ 1 ] Get your Compiz Fusion;

compiz-fusion.tar.bz2
http://www.zshare.net/download/2863539e58bff0/

compiz-fusion.tar.bz2 (Alternative URL)
http://www.badongo.com/file/3875260

Remove your local compiz;

# cd /var/log/packages
# removepkg compiz-*

Go to the downloaded new compiz and install the new packages;

# installpkg *.tgz

[ 2 ] Open your X configuration file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf;

In Section "Screen", add...

Option "RenderAccel" "true"
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
Option "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"

In the end of the same archive put this;

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

After this, hit CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to restart X server.

[ 3 ] In KDE, hit ALT+F2 and this;

"compiz --replace"

Enjoy! (:

Default Re: KDE+CF+SLACKWARE 12/Ultimate Compiz Fusion Guide!

and this is with what distribution?

and why is that easier than:
emerge beryl-manger
emerge compiz-fusion
choose compiz from beryl-manager menu
?

Edit: oh slackware. Still. Beryl-manager is worth a look. And don't forget that you need a window decorator with compiz or you won't have much fun.

Also, the 2 options below aren't needed if you're running xorg 6.9 (for the first) and 7.1 (for the second) or later:
Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
Option "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"
