There have been a couple of complaints about ATI and compiz not working on bt3, so heres the lot packed up using mesa instead of flglx.
Np got the idea from ubuntu, let me know how you get on Apparently the new ATI drivers support AIGLX. First grab my ati drivers and compiz modules below.
Then make sure "fglrx" is set for the Driver in the Section "Device". Itshould look like this
AddCode:Section “Device” Identifier “aticonfig-Device” Driver “fglrx” Option “Capabilities” “0×00000000″ Option “VideoOverlay” “on” Option “OpenGLOverlay” “off” Option “XAANoOffscreenPixmaps” “true” Option “AllowGLXWithComposite” “true” Option “RenderAccel” “true” EndSection
As well asCode:Section “Extensions” Option “DAMAGE” “true” Option “RENDER” “true” Option “Composite” “true” EndSection
And then runCode:Section "ServerFlags" Option “IgnoreABI” “on” Option “AIGLX” “true” EndSection
And you should be sweet. If it works let me know.Code:fusion-icon
If you get troubles with fusion-icon, try running with the following command
EDIT:Code:LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 compiz –no-libgl-fallback –replace ccp &
Or if you would like to make your own lzm
First grab the latest version of the ati drivers
Next build the packagesCode:wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run
This should create two packages.Code:chmod 777 ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run ./ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Slackware/All
Create a temp dir then move and extract the two packages to that dir.
Now I have had some troubles using dir2lzm so I fist pack up as a tgz soCode:mkdir temp cd temp tar xvf fglrx-x710-8.471-x86-1.tgz tar xvf fglrx-module-8.471-x86-1_kernel_*.tgz
Then create your lzm from the tgz package.Code:makepkg ati.tgz
And you are done.Code:tgz2lzm ati.tgz ati.lzm
Good stuff, should help quite a few people. Reccommend a move to Tuts Section

thanks for this! slight problem though.
your compiz link 0.7.2 link is down.
I've just installed BT3 fresh to HDD so im going to try and get compiz working.
so should we only download the 2 links in post #3 and forget about the rapidshare link in post #1?
Also, I have an ATI Xpress 1150 so I will post the results when I get time to try it.
EDIT: also does the /opt/cubez.lzm still need to be extracted?
Compiz link is working fine for me ??
however: this is what I get when I access the link
However, I have had sucess with compiz on my XPress 1150.Code:This file is currently set to private. This error has been forwarded to MediaFire's development team. When a file is set to private by its owner only the owner of the file can access it. If you are the owner of the file please log into your account to access this file.
This what I done:
1) Downloaded the latest ATI drivers from ati.com (even though the 1150 isnt listed in the integreated/motherboard section, I just downloaded the 1250 drivers)
2) chmod'd the ATI .run file and executed > completed GUI installation of drivers.
3) I then added the config changes to xorg.conf which you kindly provided - except I had to leave the (Driver “ati”) otherwise aticonfig wouldnt run
4) Ran "aticonfig --initial"
5) for some reason after extracting your compiz lzm, there was no "fusion-icon" binary. Instead I extracted cubez.lzm (from the BT3 DVD ISO)
5) executed fusion-icon
I can spin the cube, but I still have alot of experimenting/research to do as I've lost my window title bars (I think a certain theme must be set to get them back)
there seems to be alot of cool plugins but I need to do a bit more reading
thanks again for your help Dr Green!
EDIT: also, installing the ATI drivers stopped the black-screen temporary "hang" after issuing "startx" as it did from default installation.
