    Compiz will not start... Intel Integrated Graphics Card Driver Problem??


    Hello, I have a problem here... Compiz installed fine but I am unable to start it. I have the most recent version of xorg, and compiz installed. I have a Intel Integrated Graphics Card on this Toshiba L300.

    I originally posted this question on the Compiz Forums but after 3 pages of communication with a guy there, he said he could not help me.

    Here is the link:Unsolved [GENTOO] Compiz will not start... Composite Extention not found??? - Compiz Community Forums

    Here are some commands here:

    At the end of xorg.conf add this:

    Code:
    Section "Extensions"
      Option "Composite" "Enable"
    EndSection
