X11, Window Managers "In the last few months, there has been a lot of talk about Xgl, compiz, AIGLX et cetera. It seems that 'Xgl' has become a synonym for fancy desktop on Linux - but no one seems to talk about the alternatives or how it all works. I have had a little look into this and am going to summarize it for y'all. I will explain where the following come from and how they work: Xglx, Xegl, Luminocity, and AIGLX."

I don't know anything about AIGLX and the link in this post doesn't really enlighten me much, so could someone for example briefly explain if AIGLX is better than GLX, and why?

EDIT: nevermind. And I lost my interest anyway when it said XVideo doesn't work. Sucky.

XV works with AIGLX. Also works with XGL, those problems where solved long time ago.

On this machine (pavillion ze4900, i810) mplayer works fine with XV. Granted the window turns all blue whenever I move it or change ist's opacity, but hey, it's an i810.
And when i stop moving it it just goes back to normal.

Other than that, and the fact that the water plugin does't work (witch i realy don't care about anyway), it works fine... the cube its just... essential ;)
