Hi everybody,

I'm trying to get aiglx/compiz to work on my FC6 box, I installed the 9626
beta driver from livna, which is working fine. However, every time I try to
use the 'Desktop Effects' application in Gnome to enable the 3d effects I
get the following error message:

'Desktop effects could no be enabled'

I've searched the logs for a more detailed error message, unfortunately I
didn't find any. My card is a Geforce FX 5200, my xorg.conf is listed below:

As Alexandru Ciobanu mentioned

Option         "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
Option         "DisableGLXRootClipping" "True"

seemed to do the trick for me. You can launch desktop-effects from a
terminal instead of from the preferences menu to see more detailed error
messages (they don't seem to make it into a log file).

Is compiz the only wm enabled for this? Is there a way to change the window decorations? Or a gui tool to change the configuration? (I remember using one from the unofficial xgl repo in FC5) Or am I asking too much?
