I recently did an update, I'm running backtrack 5 r3, the update is listed below after I did this update Desktop Effects were broken could someone please point out what part of the update broke desktop effects.
Note that I can still run Xrender compositing but not OpenGL compositing as KDE gives the excuse that it was disabled by another application and reverts back to Xrender each time I select OpenGL.
I would be ok with this except for Xrender is slower that OpenGL. Listed below are the files that were updated.
