    Default Getting Compiz to work with fglrx

    I must warn you that is isn't working like a charm here. It's slow and some windows don't render properly, nevertheless here you go:

    Installed to HD
    I installed the drivers from ati.com
    pressed ctrl+alt+backspace to get out X
    did 'aticonfig --initial'
    ran startx
    On the usb version there is a file /bt3/optional/cubez.lzm
    cd to it's directory and run 'lzm2dir cubez.lzm /' this will extract it to /
    now edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add:
    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite"
    EndSection

    Restart X again, it should now work

    Big question now: how to properly remove it again, changing between windows is real slow. The benchmark just dropped from 250 to 15 fps

    if you run cubez, it will save the original xorg.conf in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old . Just copy it over your original xorg.conf.
    Also: the compiz forums may have some tips to adjust your device settings for better performance with fglrx. The cubez script does optimisation for opensource drivers only.
