    Default (Gutsy + Intel 965GM) compiz Howto

    Intel G965 chipset + gutsy

    Ubuntu sites say that all settings will be done automatically as i install gutsy. but compiz doesnt run and when i try to enable desktop effects it fails.


    Can somebody give a comprehensive guide or a pointer to it to make compiz fusion work on the above board using AIGLX.


    PS.. Aiglz seems to load ok and composite is enabled as well.

    PS2.. noe that it is a fresh install.

    Usually compiz is enabled, but it is a bit "hard" to see that it is really compiz as the default config is very restricted.

    but essentially my prob is that it is not running at all.

    compiz --replace ccp & fails
    saying Xgl not found or somthing similar

    Maybe your gfx card is blacklisted (pciid) in the compiz startup script. You see the pciid using:

    lspci -n|awk '$2=/0300:/{print $3}'

    Your card is probably blacklisted because of Xvideo issues. Try "SKIP_CHECKS=1 compiz" in the commandline to force compiz to load nonetheless. For a more permanent fix, you can simply uncomment the blacklisting lines in /usr/bin/compiz.

    (AFAIR Xv should work okay if you switch to EXA)
