    Compiz error; window border issues


    Hey

    When I enable compiz, my window border goes away. When I disable compiz, it appears again. I've tried to edit my xorg, by adding this:

    Code:
    Section "Device" 
            Identifier  "Videocard0" 
            Driver      "nvidia" 
            VendorName  "nvidia" 
            BoardName   "nvidia" 
            Option          "DigitalVibrance" "64" 
            Option        "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True" 
            Option         "XvmcUsesTextures" "true" 
            Option         "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true" 
            Option         "Coolbits" "1" 
            Option         "RenderAccel" "true" 
            Option         "NoLogo" "true" 
            Option       "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True" 
    EndSection
    Which is shown here: http://wiki.foresightlinux.com/confl...Binary+Drivers

    However, that is not working at all. And after a while it ruins the xserver, and I can no longer get to my graphical interface.

    Does anyone have any clues how I can solve this, and start using compiz normally?

    Thanks,
    TheRoom.

    Just reset Compiz parameters :
    Code:
    rm -r ~/.gconf/apps/compiz/
    and log in again.

    Also,
    Code:
    Option       "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"
    goes in Section "Screen", not "device".

    Plus, you are missing a few settings in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf, look here for more info :

    Thank you.

    Should I add that line from the wiki to my xorg.file before I do what you told me?
