Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 220270
Unable to run enable desktop-effects
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
I am unable to use desktop-effects to enable compiz on a Vaio SZ3, running an up
to date FC6. It soon after inatallation, but with subsequent updates appears to
be broken now. Compiz runs happily when I have the Nvidia chipset enabled (and
the proprietary driver) but not with the Intel chipset.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'desktop-effects'
There is an error message and compiz is not enabled
Compiz should be enabled
This could be a compiz bug, I suppose.

I have booted without any xorg.conf file and it is still impossible to enable
aiglx appears to be initializing fine. The question is why compiz doesn't run.
You haven't specified whether compiz just doesn't start, or whether it fails to
What output do you get from running:

Comment to make bugzilla happy
Hm, so aiglx looks like it works. Does compiz print any error messages, or does
it just not render properly, or does the desktop effects applet revert you to
metacity after the timeout, or... ?
Compiz prints some messages and then the applet reverts to metacity:
compiz: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work.
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
I've upgraded the machine in question to rawhide, and desktop-effects is working
with the newer drivers.
Marking worksforme as per comment #12. Please reopen if this comes back.
Thanks for the report!
