Compiz won't start! [Solved]

Postby cmost » Sat May 28, 2011 1:05

I've been using Sabayon for 18 months now and I absolutely LOVE it. After using Debian for years and years I installed the original 5.x KDE Edition 64 bit and have been updating to each successive version. Sabayon is probably the best kept secret in the Distro universe! About a month ago, Compiz just quit working. I didn't knowingly change anything; I simply rebooted one day and Compiz wouldn't start. I tried to get assistance via another thread but no luck. I've also wracked my brain trying to figure out what's gone wrong and I have literally spent hours and hours researching the problem, trolling through other forums trying to track down clues or a solution; all to no avail. I'm hoping that someone on these forums can provide the crucial key that gets Compiz back up and running. Before anyone suggests that I just stick with Kwin, let me say that I've been using Kwin and I really don't like it as much. I much prefer Compiz and I want it back!

I've decided that I'm going to post this and wait a week. If I can't get a solution, I'll have no choice but to reinstall my system. That might mean I'll be tempted away from Sabayon by Arch or Aptosid but I'd really like to keep Sabayon. I'll try to provide as much information as possible and if I leave anything out, please don't hesitate to ask. I humbly ask: Please help!!

Here's the basic error that I receive when trying to start Compiz on the command line:

Code: Select all
cmost@cmost-sabayon64 ~ $ compiz --replace && emerald --replace
compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin 'yes'


Here's what the log file says:

Finally, here's what I've tried so far:

-- Completely removed and then re-installed Compiz and all dependencies - no effect
-- Re-installed Python and all Python-related programs and their dependencies - no effect
-- Renamed my ~/.compiz folder to ~/.compiz-bak - no effect
-- Uninstalled then re-installed the official Sabayon nvidia drivers - no effect
-- Uninstalled the official Sabayon nvidia drivers and compiled the latest version direct from nvidia - no effect
-- Renamed my xorg.conf to xorg.conf-bak to let Xorg / Xserver create a new one -- no effect except that Kwin effects also quit working!

I don't know what else to try! :(

I don't know what else to try! :cry:

Uninstalling and reinstalling Compiz does not delete the directory ~/.config/compiz/ if I recall correctly. Did you delete that manually before reinstalling?

What I do when Compiz is working nicely is to make a backup of ~/.config/compiz/ and use it to recover ~/.config/compiz/ when Compiz stops behaving sometimes when I change something using CCSM.

Fitzcarraldo, thanks for your suggestion. I did delete the directory you mentioned and re-installed Compiz. This unfortunately had no effect. I also have seen that link you posted. I wish I could figure this out!!! Is there a way to completely wipe all traces of Compiz from the system, manually deleting directories if need be, then re-installing and configuring it from scratch?

Code: Select all
equo install compiz dbus --empty --ask


Try this.
Perhaps reinstalling this whole dependency tree fixes whatever is broken on your end.
Maybe something a while back got installed in an incorrect order (perhaps with the glibc update months ago)

It's just a wild guess but it might work. I have no problems with compiz on my systems at all.

i saw in your xorg.conf file, that you have a lot of options placed under section "Device"
i have them too, except mine are placed under section "Screen"
i don't know if that matters......
i also saw you placed Option "Composite" "On" under section "Extensions"
which i don't even have, but im running Compiz perfectly.
here's mine xorg.conf:

you know, if you had Compiz running perfectly before, it should be just running perfectly again.,
and i mean not by typing: "compiz --replace", but by simply running "fusion-icon"
and when Compiz is running, you can load Emerald within Compiz.
Can you tell me what happens if you start fusion-icon?
Kick-off starter --> programs --> system --> fusion-icon
if nothing happens, run the command in konsole (as root) and place the output here

-- Uninstalled the official Sabayon nvidia drivers and compiled the latest version direct from nvidia - no effect

never just install drivers from Nvidia.com
i did that too before, and it went well, but it CAN break some symlinks, needed by the system.
The official Sabayon nvidia drivers are working perfectly...

about fusion-icon,
if you run fusion-icon in konsole, it should look like this:
Code: Select all
aposteeltje@bwg-inc ~ $ fusion-icon
 * Detected Session: kde
 * Searching for installed applications...
 * NVIDIA on Xorg detected, exporting: __GL_YIELD=NOTHING
 * Using the GTK Interface
 * Starting Compiz
 ... executing: compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp --loose-binding --indirect-rendering

i had some errors too (not displayed), but that's because compiz was already running when i entered the command.

Joost, I went ahead and followed your suggestion which resulted in the re-installation of 180 packages. Afterward, I rebooted the system and once again tried to startup Compiz. Here's what happened:

Quit anyway? (y or n) [answered Y; input not from terminal]

For the heck of it, I tried the compiz --replace command in the terminal and as expected, the following error still persists!

Code: Select all
cmost@cmost-sabayon64 ~ $ compiz --replace
compiz (core) - Error: Couldn't load plugin 'yes'


What the hell is this plugin 'yes' anyway???

As for my xorg.conf, it's one that I've recycled for quite some time. I've always found it to be completely reliable. Nevertheless, I'll try the other user's xorg.conf file and see what happens.

i don't think it's your xorg.conf. you better leave that as is, 'cause you're using it for quite some time.

a year ago the same problem occured.
problem then was a broken libcompizconfig, and the solution (for some people, not all)
was downgrading the libcompizconfig package, and i believe uninstalling iniparser.
i assume you're running libcompizconfig version 0.8.4-r2 and that's fine, 'cause im running the same version., in fact;
it's the only version available in entropy.
But in portage, version 0.9.2 is available.
maybe we have to look in this direction.

or something wrong or missing in /usr/bin/compiz-manager (wrong plugin path for example...)
example of /usr/bin/compiz-manager :
Code: Select all
COMPIZ_BIN_PATH="/usr/bin/" # For window decorators and compiz
PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/lib64/compiz/"
GLXINFO="/usr/bin/glxinfo"
KWIN="/usr/bin/kwin"
METACITY="/usr/bin/metacity"
COMPIZ_NAME="compiz" # Final name for compiz (compiz.real)

# For Xgl LD_PRELOAD
LIBGL_NVIDIA="/usr/lib64/nvidia/libGL.so.1.2.xlibmesa"
LIBGL_FGLRX="/usr/lib64/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2.xlibmesa"

# Minimum amount of memory (in kilo bytes) that nVidia cards need
# to be allowed to start
# Set to 262144 to require 256MB
NVIDIA_MEMORY="65536" # 64MB
NVIDIA_SETTINGS="nvidia-settings" # Assume it's in the path by default

# For detecting what driver is in use, the + is for one or more /'s

Hi, I've experienced the same problem with latest Amd64G DAILY version...
Solved in this manner (with Compiz already launched) in order to get a functional window manager:
Code: Select all
$ metacity --replace

kill fusion icon process:
Code: Select all
$ pkill fusion-icon

and copy my old CONFIG files into ~/.config/compiz/*.* then launch fusion-icon simply from program menu and it finally works... :roll: :shock:

This is my configuration files for compiz and emerald:
compiz_configs.7z

Ciao

Latest daily had a faulty skel package (sabayon-skel.6-r1 was empty so ALL configs were missing).
So if alonsoty had the simular problem (no logs? we just have to guess) try to copy the config from /etc/skel

Offtopic: The empty sabayon-skel package has been in the dailies a couple of days and didn't affect any excisting systems. Ok only if you created a new user while having sabayon-skel.6-r1 installed.
