Mclaren F1 Long tail
Recently I installed 3d desktop and 3d chess from the synaptic package manager but it did not work so I proceeded as per the instructions on the compiz page in ubuntu ;i.e;by adding third party repositories and then installing them.Now when i go to the compiz settings manager it doesn't open.Please help i am using ubuntu fiesty fawn.

Ok here is the error message that I get on typing ccsm in terminal
"no python found but don't worry its an optional component ".I installed python 2.5 from synaptic but I am still getting the same old error message.

sorry for bumping this not-so-old thread.

I installed gutsy gibbon a few days ago.I thought compiz fusion would be activated by default but it isn't.I tried preferences-->appearance-->Visual effects-->normal/extra but it shows "Desktop effects could not be enabled".What am I missing?

I tried
Code:
sudo apt-get install compiz compizconfig-settings-manager
it shows:compiz is already the newest version.
E: Couldn't find package compizconfig-settings-manager

what is the problem?

BTW I have a c2d processor,intel 946gzis mobo,512mb ddr2 RAM,and all the other normal stuff.

Think Zen.
dri - Direct Rendering Infrastructure
To know whether dri is enabled try this,
Code:
glxinfo | grep direct
and post output here.

Think Zen.
Hmm,dri is enabled.
i cant think of anything else that might be the reason for compiz effects being disabled.
Btw,did the effects work when u used the live-cd?

X3100 is blacklisted hardware but X3000 is not, I don't understand what's going wrong :?

Try starting compiz from CLI and see if it says some unique error?

Yes there are many problems with Intel's onboard chipset (involving compiz) it seems. here take a look at these links. Hope it helps

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/compiz/+bug/152226
thanks mate.The very first link is useful I tried
Code:
SKIP_CHECKS=yes compiz
it forced compiz but it is pretty buggy(on my system of course).Even the berly effects in linux mint were better than this.

Code:
root@edubuntu:/home/ravi# SKIP_CHECKS=yes compiz
Checking for Xgl: not present. 
Blacklisted PCIID '8086:2972' found 
SKIP_CHECKS is yes, so continuing despite problems.
Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present. 
Trying again with indirect rendering:
Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present. 
Checking for non power of two support: present. 
Checking for Composite extension: present. 
Comparing resolution (1152x864) to maximum 3D texture size (2048): Passed.
Checking for nVidia: not present. 
Checking for FBConfig: present. 
Checking for Xgl: not present. 
Starting gtk-window-decorator
/usr/bin/compiz.real (core) - Warn: SmcOpenConnection failed: Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed
/usr/bin/compiz.real (video) - Warn: No 8 bit GLX pixmap format, disabling YV12 image format
:(
now as soon as I close this terminal window my system almost halts(all messy).Looks like I'll have to live without compiz.
