ATI Mobility Radeon x1300:
• Emerge Compiz Fusion
• Fix GDM using this wiki: ... Xgl_Server
• Create a script to load Compiz Fusion on login.

Code: Select all

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib compiz --sm-disable --replace ccp
• Name that script compiz-start-sh.

• chmod +x the script.
• Set it to start on login in gnome.

Using latest Gnome Desktop available. Mobility Radeon x1300. Compiz-Fusion

EDIT DM: a simpler way to do it is editing /usr/share/autostart/compiz-manager.desktop and changing

Code: Select all


Code: Select all

Exec=LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/opengl/xorg-x11/lib fusion-icon
I think we'll fix that soon on every ati just emerging a new version of desktop-acceleration-helpers

EDIT DM 2: patch applied to desktop-acceleration-helpers, so just

Code: Select all

layman -s sabayon && emerge desktop-acceleration-helpers
On Sabayon @ Freenode: <ColdFlo> im not asking for support <ColdFlo> im asking for help

Thinkpad T43p: ATI Technologies Inc M24GL [Mobility FireGL V3200]

Did not work on the LiveCD, but works fine out-of-the-box on the installed system. Compiz does not start on login, I have to run it manually with compiz-start.
