    Re: How to play openGL based games with full 3D acceleration on XGL/compiz

    got compiz and Xgl working great, with the non Xgl script I had to put the DISPLAY=":0" and openGL games run okay. This is with a radeon 9800 np. The only problem (and I'm guessing is a bug in compiz), if I right click an icon and hit properties, then hit close, my session crashes and brings me back to GDM. This happens when I hit the close button with screen resolution and other programs as well, however if I hit the X at the top right of the window, it's fine. Is anyone else having this same problem?

    Wooow ATI XGL ON DISPLAY :0
    I tried it yesterday & its amazing i also thought to run XGL on DISPLAY :0 & see if ATI fixed there issue & use tried
    xv:fbo
    instead of
    xvbuffer
    & guess what
    IT WORKED as well as the script arnieboy made *thx man great work*
    So the full line i used is
    /usr/bin/Xgl :0 -fullscreen -br -accel glxbuffer -accel xv:fbo -xorgAc
    But still wondering what is -xorgAc do???

    Thanks jakster for the tip

    BTW i'm using ATI RADEON 9600 XT 256

    **PS ONLY WORKS WITH ATI 8.25.18 DRIVER**

    unselect the Dock plugin. that's very unstable. this solved my "quit to GDM" problem...

    Thank you for the info, however, an upgrade to the latest packages also fixes the problem.

    Heres what Im getting when trying to launch UT2004. I followed this easy guide to a "T".

    nonXGL /home/atm/.ut2004/ut2004 is the command.

    Code:
    Could not launch menu item
    
    Details: Failed to execute child process "nonXGL" (No such file or directory)

    From Xgl --help:
    -xorgAc disable access control restrictions

    I read on the Compiz forum, that it enables you to do DISPLAY=:93 <program> without being root.

    just tried it with warsow, the game runs fine, but my mouse movement is inverted (which is very annoying) does anyone know how to prevent this?

    Too bad the window decorations go missing in windowed applications, but hey at least most games don't need the title bar buttons to exit.
    I used this for running Netbeans 5.5, but indeed annoying that I can't maximize the window & stuff
