I think openGL ES 2.0 is disabled by blacklisting fglrx at kwin for KDE version prior 4.9... Does anyone know how to force the procedure??

XVBA works via VAAPI mod through VLC output:
Code:
libva: VA-API version 0.33.0
libva: User requested driver 'fglrx'
libva: Trying to open /usr/lib64/dri/fglrx_drv_video.so
libva: Found init function __vaDriverInit_0_32
libva: va_openDriver() returns 0
xvba_video: XVBA_GetSurface(): status 2
[0x7f8d38c6dba8] avcodec decoder: Using VA API version 0.33 for hardware decoding.
[h264 @ 0x7f8d38002a60] Cannot parallelize deblocking type 1, decoding such frames in sequential order
Let's see if it works under Xserver 1.13...


For reference I have Shadow Primary enabled with no problems. KDE runs smooth for now.
Create a file in ~/.kde4/env with a name ending in '.sh'.

The file should contain:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
export KWIN_DIRECT_GL=1
That will get you OpenGL 2 support. It works with KDE 4.9 in openSUSE but I didn't try it with the default 4.8.5.
