I'm trying to get desktop effects to work in KDE 4.1.3 (openSUSE 11.1
x86_64) and not having much luck. I'm curious if any of you have have
similar hardware and are having any luck.

Anyone willing to take a shot at this?


Make sure your /etc/X11/xorg.conf includes the following at the bottom

Section "DRI"
Group "video"
Mode 0660

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "true"
Option "DAMAGE" "true"

** Also, be aware that ATI broke 3D in the 8-12 driver you installed, but
unfortunately, that is all we have until the 9-1 driver is released. Also,
performance of the 8-12 driver sucks compared to earlier versions. 8-9 is the
last good performer, but that doesn't support 11.1 :-(
