Trying Xgl and compiz

June 21, 2007

I’m testing out Xgl, the OpenGL accelerated X server for linux, along with the compiz compositing window manager. Most things seem to work.

One annoyance is that the opening window animation that is standard in gnome is incredibly slow for some reason when using Xgl. To solve this I got some internet advice and messed around with gconf which I haven’t done before:

ben@calamity:~$ gconftool-2 --get /apps/panel/global/enable_animations
ben@calamity:~$ gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/panel/global/enable_animations false
