Install/configure Compiz Fusion on openSUSE 10.3 for Intel onboard graphics

First up, download the required Compiz Fusion packages via 1-click install; Here are the links:

1-Click Installer for KDE

1-Click Installer for GNOME

1-Click Installer for Compiz Manager

We’ll have make some changes to /etc/X11/xorg.conf as well.

So open the Terminal and type

kdesu kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf –> This is for KDE users
gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf –> This is for GNOME users

Now scroll down to Section “Module” section and check if the below are present. If not, add them.

Section "Module"
Load "dri"
Load "glx"
Load "dbe"

Add these to Section “Device”

Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
Option "DRI" "true"

Add these to Section “ServerLayout”

Option "AIGLX" "true"

Make sure Section “DRI” looks like this

Group "video"
Mode 0660

Finally, add this to Section “Extensions”

Option "Composite" "Enable"

Next, we’ll have to modify /usr/bin/compiz-manager to ensure that Indirect Rendering is done. For that, open Terminal and type

kdesu kate /usr/bin/compiz-manager –> For KDE Users
gksudo gedit /usr/bin/compiz-manager –> For GNOME Users

Scroll down to COMPIZ_OPTIONS and add –indirect-rendering. So now, your COMPIZ_OPTIONS should look something like

COMPIZ_OPTIONS=”–indirect-rendering –sm-disable –ignore-desktop-hints ccp –replace”
Also, For GMA X3000/3100/ 965 Chipset users, Find this section

# blacklist based on the pci ids
# See http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Hardware/Blacklist for details
T=” 1002:5954 1002:5854 1002:5955″ # ati rs480
T=”$T 1002:4153″ # ATI Rv350
T=”$T 8086:2982 8086:2992 8086:29a2 8086:2a02 8086:2a12″ # intel 965
BLACKLIST_PCIIDS=”$T”
unset T

And Change this to

# blacklist based on the pci ids
# See http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/Hardware/Blacklist for details
T=” 1002:5954 1002:5854 1002:5955″ # ati rs480
T=”$T 1002:4153″ # ATI Rv350
# T=”$T 8086:2982 8086:2992 8086:29a2 8086:2a02 8086:2a12″ # intel 965
BLACKLIST_PCIIDS=”$T”
unset T

That’s about enough tweaking! To launch compiz-fusion, at the terminal type
compiz-manager
