    KDE has the ability to enable desktop effects using XRender (which is supported via EXA) rather than OpenGL (which is not supported yet). Maybe give that a try ?

    I heard it only does a limited set of the actual effects. It should give compositing though.

    Unfortunately i cannot also enable compositing via Xrender.
    When i run systemsettings via konsole, i get warning when im entering compositing settings:
    Code:
    unknown chip id 0x9589, can't guess.

    Try installing xf86-video-ati-git. Maybe your card was already added.

    That's to be expected, it doesn't have a Mesa driver yet. Ignore that, please.

    Were you able to go into the "Advanced" screen and select XRender ?

    I think the sequence is "click on Enable Effects => click on Advanced => choose XRender" or something like that...

    EDIT - found some instructions that might help :

    When compiling mesa, you can specify r600

    But, the package that I get sticks r600 in /usr/lib/dri. So you can put a link to /usr/lib/dri in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/dri.

    But then I still get dri disabled. I imagine the software is just not ready yet or I'm goofing it up. This for a HD3200. Your results may differ.
