I run backtrack as a main OS, and recently I wanted to dress it up a bit with Compiz.
Linux bt 3.2.6 #1 SMP Fri Feb 17 10:34:20 EST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have followed all directions on the tutorial here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=29035 the only thing I wasn't able to grab was ' compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported ' but everything installed fine, in my rc.local file I added everything just like the tutorial but left out the compiz-fusion-plugins-unsupported package. What happens is when I reboot everything loads fine with no errors before prompting root log in. After I startx everything loads fine, but the blue icon for the Compiz Fusion isn't in my upper bar, and my settings which are woggle windows do not work.. When I manually load Compiz Fusion Icons it loads fine > right click I have tried each option differently with no success. The screen flickers and nothing happens..
When I type just 'compiz' in my terminal this is what happens
Unrecognized deviceID 126
compiz (core) - Fatal: No valid GL extensions string found.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
Launching fallback window manager
I have been googling the issue for a day now and suspect its something to do with my intel card..
The computer I have is a Asus laptop, I have tried to get compiz to play nicely with my intel i915 card, because this has worked before on bt5 32bit for me

I have also followed another tutorial on here when I first installed to load my i915 driver here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=48904 , not sure if this is of any help I have got this to work before on another install of bt5 32bit.
apt-get purge nvidia-*
apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
update-alternatives --remove gl_conf /usr/lib/nvidia-current/ld.so.conf
Any advice or a pointer in the right direction would be much appreciated
