Compiz Up and running in Debian

I finally was able to successful run compiz on debian based PC.

A lot of work has to be done on Debian to make it stand up in front of REDHAT. but even without those enhancements, It is a lot more better then redhat and other rpm based ones in terms of its support on packages both online and off line.

In order to configure COMPIZ Help taken from http://lunapark6.com/debian-40-etch.html

Befor starting to act on the below listed steps, you should know about the basic requirement of the compiz manager, The bare minimum is 3D capable Graphic’s card and atleast 512 MB of ram.

The simple procedure is as follows

Install Compiz using apt-get

#apt-get install compiz

this will install compiz along with its dependencies

now you need to manually perform some steps in the file : /etc/X11/xorg.conf

then added these two lines under the “Screen” section :

Option “XAANoOffscreenPixmaps”
Option “AddARGBGLXVisuals” “true”

then added these lines under “Device” :

Option “AllowGLXWithComposite” “true”
Option “RenderAccel” “true”

added one line under “Server Layout” :

Option “AIGLX” “on”

Finally at the end of the file I added these lines :

Section “Extensions”
Option “Composite” “Enable”
EndSection

After making the following chages with your fav. text editor

Add “compiz –replace” to “Desktop -> Preferences -> Sessions -> Startup Programs”.

Now restart the Xserver, Better is to restart the whole system.

After you login you will directly be in a compizified environment.
