Description Bojan Smojver 2008-04-19 20:02:32 EDT
Description of problem:
Compiz refuses to start with:

[fedora@localhost ~]$ compiz --replace
compiz (core) - Error: Could not acquire compositing manager selection on screen
0 display ":0.0"
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Either attempt to enable desktop effects or start compiz from the command
line with compiz --replace.
Actual results:
Cannot attach itself to the display.

Expected results:
This works in F8.

Additional info:
I will attach lspci and X.org logs. The system is Dell Inspiron 6400 with
embedded Intel graphics. I have two such machines and they both cannot start compiz.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 7 Bojan Smojver 2008-05-14 17:44:11 EDT
Indeed, this is still a problem in Fedora 9 release.
Comment 8 Bojan Smojver 2008-05-16 01:06:43 EDT
Strangely enough, on my other Dell Inspiron 6400, with Intel graphics but 1280 x
800 screen size, compiz runs just fine. Go figure...
Comment 9 Bojan Smojver 2008-05-16 02:59:36 EDT
Unfortunately, there is no resolution string of USERISANIDIOT, so I am closing
as NOTABUG :-( The solution is, of course:

gconftool-2 --set --type bool /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager false

(hence the the message "Could not acquire compositing manager selection")
