XGL Setup Issue?
I have followed the Gentoo wiki on setting up XGL. Under the Windowed Mode subsection of the Running XGL section, I (an nVidia user) run:
And the standard grey nested X window pops up. Upon following the next step (being a compiz user), I run:
# Xgl :1 -ac -accel glx:pbuffer -accel xv -fp /usr/share/fonts/misc,/usr/share/fonts/other_fonts
This causes my nested window to turn black, freeze and quit rendering. I can just click the X of my window manager, or ctrl+c in the terminal I created it with, to stop it. In fact, I can ctrl+c in the terminal I called compiz with, and it reverts to a grey screen. Nonetheless, it's not getting me anywhere. I am stuck here in the setup process. Any ideas? TIA.
# LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib/ \
# DISPLAY=:1 compiz gconf
It may be just related to xnest, that step is just for testing so you can skip it. It may work ...
when I write "compiz start" it shows me this:
compiz. real: Screen 0 on display ":0.0" alredy has a window manager; try using --replace option to replace the current window manager. compiz real: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
If I write
"compiz --replace gconf &"
This causes my current window freeze. I can't click the X of my window, because that tab disappears, and I can't change the current window. The only thig I can do is to restart my computer by clicking ctrl+alt+backspace... please help
BTW, I have nVidia GForce 5200 FX
