My setup: Lenovo thinkpad x60 (gfx chip: intel 945GM) (this article is "work in progress..)

  • As root do: Compile compiz-fusion
compiz-fusion and all its dependencies will get compiled and installed
  • Modify thoses xorg.conf sections:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Xorg Configured"
	Screen         0 "Screen0"  0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
        Option         "AIGLX" "true"
EndSection
Section "Module"
	Load  "glx"
	Load  "extmod"
	Load  "xtrap"
	Load  "record"
	Load  "dbe"
	Load  "dri"
	Load  "type1"
EndSection
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Card0"
	Driver      "intel"
       	BusID           "PCI:0:2:0"
        Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
	Option "DRI"     "true"
EndSection
Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Card0"
	SubSection "Display"
            Virtual         2048 2048
	EndSubSection

EndSection
Section "DRI"
        Group "video"
        Mode    0666
EndSection
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection
  • Restart Xorg
  • Run compiz with :
keisangi@kanzume ~] LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 INTEL_BATCH=1 compiz --replace --indirect-rendering --sm-disable ccp &
keisangi@kanzume ~] emerald start &

Compiz-fusion is really snappy despite the lowend gfx chip on x60
