Compiz crashes with nvidia on 12.04

Asked by Dirk Hoeschen on 2012-05-08

After a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 AMD64 installation I activated the nvidia driver.
At the end of the process there was an error message like "installation could not be finished".
So I restarted and repeated the installation without error this time.

The Nvidia driver is activated, direct rendering is enabled and 3D in blender or with WebGL works flawless. But compiz isn't loading.

But the composite extension can not be activated.

In .xsession-error I found the following message when I start with Unity...
* gnome-session[1582]: WARNING: Session 'ubuntu' runnable check failed: Abbruch mit Code 1

... when Try to start Gnome3
* gnome-session-is-accelerated: No composite extension.
* gnome-session-check-accelerated: Helper exited with code 256
* gnome-session[3018]: WARNING: Session 'gnome' runnable check failed: Abbruch mit Code 1

I have already tried to download and install the driver fom nividia directly. The same result.

* Driver is loaded and used by Xwindows
* Compiz refused to start
* Gnome fallback to classic mode

I tried to start compiz by hand. But it crashes with memory error.
Before the crash something like "failed to receive ConfigureNotify event" and
"Fatal: No composit extension" is printed out.

Here is my Xorg0.log. As you see the driver for the Nvidia 260GX is loading. I am using 2 screens in widemode. But that was never a problem and I already tried to use only one screen.

It seems that the nvidia "Xorg.conf" was build without composite extension.
I have no idea how this happens because it was fresh install and I never touched
the Xorg.conf.

If you have the same problem try the following:

Switch to Console by pressing Alt-Strg-1 and log in

sudo service stop lightdm
sudo nvidia-xconfig --composite
sudo service start lightdm

That was the solution for me
