Enabling Translucency, KDE3.4, nvidia geforce4 ti4600 -UPDATED
Pentium4 2.8, HT, 800FSB (Northwood)
MSI 865PE Neo2 LS800
Geforce Ti4600 ( Leadtek/Winfast A250 Ultra TD)
Creative Soundblaster Live
Well, i'm using Gentoo-linux, 2.6.12-r8.
So, I saw this function in KDE (translucency), with what you could fade windows, so I thought, COOL
First I saw that the 'nv' driver was not going to do the trick, cause I had very low FPS, I think it was rendering the shadows and fades on software.
So I emerge nvidia-kernel, nvidia-settings, nvidia-glx.
I Added the 'Composite' 'Enable' under extensions
I Disabled the Load 'dri' (outcommented), and enabled
AllowCompositeWithGLX, RenderAccel, and last but not least, changed the "Driver" to nvidia.
Well, all things whent well , but as soon as I turned translucency on in KDE, and restarted xdm with /etc/init.d/xdm restart. Now, I get the login, well, I type my password *enter* get the loading screen of kde, it all goes well. BUT
My icons and taskbar etc dont appear ? I'm also not able to start any programs (like ksysguard).
So, i looked for my logs ...
First, what happens if I start with startx ->
Xorg.0.log : http://paste.uni.cc/7595
What happens if I start with /etc/init.d/xdm start
Xorg.0.log : http://paste.uni.cc/7596
kdm.log : http://paste.uni.cc/7597
Can anyone help me ?

Bump. I want to hear what the deal is also. I've been having problems trying to get translucency to work with my nvidia card.
Take a look at that wiki entry, it will get you translucency in KDE. It has never failed for me. I have an nvidia card also.
