Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

The only way to avoid having to switch to terminal every reboot is to create that directory by hand, I put this in the /etc/rc.local:

mkdir /tmp/.ICE-unix
chmod 777 /tmp/.ICE-unix
chmod +t /tmp/.ICE-unix

sure big_smile

in debian there was a script that did something like that, it fixed some permisions in tmp directory for kde, maybe it is worth to check.

Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

I found something, in mandrake 9.1:

in /etc/rc.sysinit:
# Clean ICE locks
mkdir -p /tmp/.ICE-unix
chown root:root /tmp/.ICE-unix
rm -rf /tmp/.ICE-unix/*
chmod a+rwx,+t /tmp/.ICE-unix

in debian there is the /etc/init.d/xfree86-common, i deleted my debian i can cat the file...

Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

Runing fine here (Gnome 2.6) but I did have to run xorgconfig again to set it up.  My previous version of Xorg Server had a missing Keyboard input descripter and hence 6.8.0 was winging about the entry not being in the xorg.conf file.  Will be testing it with America's Army and Red Orchestra later today to see how it responds.

Can't wait until Gnome 2.8 is released, will be very interesting.

Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

Without xcompmgr -c enabled, I truely feel xorg 6.8.0 running on my system very smoothly and a little bit faster in my opinion(if don't mention the /tmp/.ICR-unix ownership problem above); However, there are some small problems after shadows on,
1, Mozilla firefox doesn't think my gnome panel exsited when maxmizing.
2, Mplayer becomes blank screen when plays movies in the full screen mode.
3, Totem seems to work here but still has a little problem with
Otherwise, so far so good, I even don't notice much speed lose when xcompmgr runs with argue c. What's more, how can I enable shadows on by default, I mean how I can run xcompmgr -c at starting x without input command manually in the terminal after booting into gnome?

Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

I'm getting the same problem with maximizing firefox... covers up both my top and bottom menu's in Gnome...

Unfortunately I think I'm going to have to wait for awhile before I can use the shadows and transparency... they just run WAY too darn slow....

In gnome yuo can go to desktop preferences -> advanced -> sessions

go to the startup programs tab (I think, I'm not home and don't remember exactly) and you can add commands that will be executed when gnome start. Just add xcompmgr -c there and it will start smile

As for transparency, you get that by running transset and clicking a window. trannset takes as argument the amount of transparency (from 0 to 1, so 0.9 is almost opaque, 0.1 is almost invisible).

Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

I just discovered that if you enable the composite extension, Flash sites on Mozilla/Firefox no
longer work, it crashes the browser, at least in my computer (Nvidia Geforce 2 go).

Re: xorg 6.8.0 running great

does jack for me.

if i enable all the extensions all it does is disable fluxbox transparency and make my idesk icons invisible!

i am running fluxbox cvs - which has been modded to work with the new extensions - something very wrong here!   big_smile
