That will get you OpenGL 2 support. It works with KDE 4.9 in openSUSE but I didn't try it with the default 4.8.5.Code:
I don't see any performance improvement with KWIN_DIRECT_GL=1 and radeon hd 5670 (KDE 4.9 and fglrx-updates in ubuntu 12.04... I know it's not the newest driver but it will be always the same)
fglrx-updates != 12.9
In precise it is still version 12.4 - so it is ofc that you don't see any speedup.
Catalyst 12.9 Beta (at least for Windows) is going to be released *next* week. So this is nowhere near final.
Guys first of all it does NOT work with xserver 1.13. I installed the whole stack of packages with the latest code from X11:Xorg repository for openSUSE 12.2(I did all the needed stuff first, like uninstalled catalyst via amdconfig --uninstall command, rebooted, then I did the package updates, logout-login, installed catalyst 12.9, reboot) and I couldn't login at all!
I reinstalled the old packages from the standard repo, reinstalled catalyst 12.9 with Kano's mod and all is working now again.
@foxifire: I did what you said but I created the folder ~./kde4/env cause it didn't exist and put inside the file as you described with the code you gave me.
Can I find out somehow if openGL ES 2.0 really works??
I'm sorry that I can't test this effect anymore as I'have nomore kde on my system. However if you find some performance improvement with opengl 2 let us know as I'm very interested about this.
