    If you are using a blob, who knows?

    I was talking about Metacity in Gnome 2.x. I didn't run Gnome Shell. I'm running Mesa, but I suppose there won't be any problems with compositions running Gnome Shell.

    Sorry about that

    I know that Metacity is no longer getting new features, but I wonder if some of the non-Clutter additions to Mutter (like the new extensions) were pushed to Metacity? If so, that might explain why your Mesa stack can't run it. Have you tried installing Mutter? I'd be interested to see if that composites for you.
    I'm sure I asked this before but I take it you queried gconf to verify it was on?
    gconftool-2 -g /apps/metacity/general/compositing_manager
    should be true.
