Composite, Damages, XFixes
by Dennis J. on Thu 24th Mar 2005 13:08 UTC

@finalzone:
Thanks for trying to help. I did restart X properly and the Composite extension is running (fglrx reports it has deactivated DRI due to the enabled composite and xdpyinfo lists it too) but Damages and XFixes are not. I even put the following in the config file:

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
Option "XFIXES" "Enable"
Option "DAMAGE" "Enable"
EndSection

and in the logfile I get:

...
(**) Extension "DAMAGE" is enabled
...
(II) Initializing built-in extension DAMAGE
...

yet xdpyinfo doesn't list Damage and xcompmgr and luminocity complain that they need the Damage extension. I'm really puzzled about this.
