    Installation worked flawless for me on Ubuntu Gutsy. Whitelisted fglrx in /usr/bin/compiz on line 54 (someone asked how to do it previously).

    Performance is not really good. Worse than the opensource ati driver (like kirý said). Did I miss enabling some options in xorg.conf?

    Greetings...

    What hardware are you using? What's your xorg.conf look like?

    * Installing fglrx module
    * ati tree 'lib' -> 'lib32' on system
    install: cannot stat `/var/tmp/paludis/x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.42.3/work/arch/x86_64/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2': No such file or directory
    install: cannot stat `/var/tmp/paludis/x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.42.3/work/arch/x86_64/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so': No such file or directory
    * ati tree 'lib64' -> 'lib64' on system
    install: cannot stat `common/etc/ati/fglrxprofiles.csv': No such file or directory
    install: cannot stat `common/etc/ati/fglrxrc': No such file or directory
    arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now no apps are starting because of the libgl.s0.1.2 not being there... how could i fix this?! if i cannot fix it i cannot use the driver...
    for me the driver can be called 8.42.3 the baby is born... dead!!!!!!!!!

    Then added (compiz)
    Code:
    # Driver whitelist
    WHITELIST="fglrx nvidia intel ati radeon i810"
    and (xorg.conf)
    Code:
    Section "Module"
    	Load		"glx"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Extensions"
    	Option "Composite" "1"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerFlags"
    	Option "AIGLX" "on"
    EndSection
    I'm running Gutsy with ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. When I try to enable Compiz there's a white-screen.
    Code:
     fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)
    You've got Mesa there instead of ATI. You should be getting something similar to this:

    Code:
    display: 0:0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technolgies Inc.
    OpenGL rendered string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 release
    Try installing it manually via method 2 found here:
    (uninstall all previous instances of fglrx first, but don't reboot till you finish the manual install)

    What kills me is that compiz-fusion is running at a usable speed -- just completely graphically corrupted.

    Oh yeah, and et:qw crashed the X server after about 20 seconds into the game.

    Wish I was more impressed, but...

    I get the same error in Ubuntu Feisty... (so, clearly this is a general Ubuntu problem).

    Oops, yeah, didn't mean to say "Gutsy Gibbon" in my previous post.

    Any clue which options I should activate in my "Xorg.conf" config file in order to enable Compiz via AIGLX? When running
    compiz.real --indirect-rendering --replace I'm getting a message telling me that the composite extension is not enabled on my system.

    Also, when I installed it (on Gutsy), it seems the package did not create a necessary symbolic link (ie. in /usr/lib libGL.so.1 was not found, but libGL.so.1.2 was, so I created a symbolic pointing from libGL.so.1 to libGL.so.1.2 and it did the trick).

    EDIT: If you have the Composite extension disabled in your xorg.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, make sure you re-enable it.
    ok, thanks for the composite extension tip, i didn't read the post first.
