    Thankyou for your help. glxinfo now gives me this:

    Code:
    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on RV710
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.10-devel
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
    I still cannot get Kwin compositing to work under KDE 4.5.1 (Kubuntu 10.10). I presume now that I will need another ppa for KDE 4.5.2 or something?

    I will go to the "KDE doesn't work thread and check there.

    But thanks for your help anyway. Gallium is going to be very interesting.

    PS: I tried KDE 4.5.2 as described here:
    http://www.kubuntu.org/news/kde-sc-4.5.2

    with this driver:
    Code:
    $ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
    OpenGL vendor string: X.Org
    OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on RV710
    OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.10-devel
    OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20
    OpenGL extensions:
    Still no joy. Kwin crashes (and then I presume re-starts) when you try to enable compositing, and Kwin reports that it cannot run any of the compositing effects.

    I am more than a bit frustrated with Kwin right now. It used to work fine.

    Does it work with r600c?

    A few days ago, when I last tested r600g, it could not run KWin on my system. r600c is perfect.

    You could try a drm next kernel. For ubuntu you can download compiled packages from:

    No, compositing does not work on my Kubuntu 10.10/KDE 4.5.2/Kwin system with either r600c or r600g.

    Something seriously borked within Kwin I would think.
