X11R6.8.0 [Update 4]


By Yaba
Published: Sep 8 2004

X11R6.8.0 is released! Sources are available. Unfortunately I cannot find release notes anywere. I will update this as soon as I know more. All I have until now is a posting on Slashdot.

You all know what this means: Real transparency is no longer a dream on X desktops.

[Update 2004-09-09]

Obviously the release was pulled back after someone made an inofficial announcement too early. Nevertheless SuSE 9.1 users can already download binaries. If SuSE did not do much patching, maybe users of other distributions also can use the source rpm?

[Update 2004-09-09/2]

Sources are available on ftp://ftp.x.org/pub/X11R6.8.0/tars/, however the server is pretty busy. So please try a mirror:

I placed the release notes on my web server (please don't submit this link on /. ;-) ).

[Update 2004-09-09/3]

Emerge package for gentoo users: http://www.gentoo-portage.com/ebuild_download.php?e=x11-base/xorg-x11/xorg-x11-6.8.0.ebuild

[Update 2004-09-09/3]

All files are also available via eDonkey/overnet:

X11R6.8.0-src1.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src2.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src3.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src4.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src5.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src6.tar.gz
X11R6.8.0-src7.tar.gz

[Update 2004-09-12]

Finally there are official pages about the X11R6.8.0 release.

May be its a stupid question but it would be very nice if somebody could help me.
I have XFree86 installed with my Suse 9.1.
How can I change to use the xorg-x11-6.8.0 instead of the XFree86, after installing the rpm`s?
Do I have to uninstall the XFree86 rpm`s?
Please help me I already googled but I could not find an answer:

Check /etc/ld.so.conf and if the path to this lib is missing, add it and run ldconfig afterwards.

Thanks a lot for your quick answer!
The PATH is correct in /etc/ld.so.conf
and I did ldconfig.
xcompmgr comlains about missing libXfixes.so.0. I checked /usr/X11R6/lib and I have libXfixes.so.3.0 installed with the Suse rpm`s.
Do you think it`s a problem of the version?
I got xcompmgr yesterday from freedesktop.org,shouldn´t it use the newest libraries?

Thanks for your help!!

I copied the librarie-version libXfixes.so.0 to /usr/X11R6/lib.
Now after running ./xcompmgr -c I have
this:Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Invalid XDM-AUTHORIZATION-1 key (failed key comparison)
Can't open display
Do you have an idea?
Thanks a lot!!!

Obiously you've messed up your .xauth file.

Check man xauth (Sorry, don't have more info at my fingertips available)

Here's a howto on how to do the transparent windows...

Just look at the bottom section. Replace the paths with the ones appropriate for your setup.

 Testing in Debian

I've compiled it and tested it in a Debian unstable system. Everything but the keyboard configuration is ok. With x.org I can't change to virtual consoles and I can't write some important symbols like @ or [.
I'm using the same configuration that with xfree86.
What has changed in x.org config file?
Why I get it running well on xfree86 and not in x.org 6.8 having the same configuration?

See this link, posted above: http://ruinaudio.com/xorg-cvs-howto.txt

There something is explained regarding necessary changes in the config file for X.org

I tried that. I've changed the driver option, but nothing happens. On every change I make, everything it's the same.
All the keys are working except Alt Gr and the CTRL+ALT+Fi. It's strange, because it's restarting when I press CTRL+ALT+BACK but not with F1, F2, ...
I've changed xfree86 to xorg. I've tried with PC104 and PC105 models and it's all still the same.
With PC104 I get this on xfree86, but with PC105 I get all keys working.
With xorg I get the wrong keymapping no matter what model I choose.

Well, it's a strange bug not related (maybe yes) to xorg but with kdm and gdm.
I have kdm starting automatically at boot, but if I quit kdm, and start a session with xinit or startx I get the good keymap.
I switched to gdm thinking that kdm was the problem. It worked at first, but after a restart, everything it's like it was with kdm.
Have anyone tried it in Debian with a non-us keyboard?

You need to change the keyboard driver from Keyboard to kbd. More notes here.

 uninstall x.org ?

 
 by rocket on: Sep 12 2004
 
Score 50%

Suse 9.1 Questions and Probems:
I installed x.org using the rpms on the ftp site mentioned above. (using rpm -Uvh)

Here are the list of problems I have had on testing it:
1. xcompmgr does not remove shadows on resizing windows.
2. xcompmgr does not support dual head Xinerama mode.
3. actually after installing x.org i am unable to switch between virtual consoles (ctrl-alt-f1) when in dual head mode. My screen just freezes with a screenshot of the time when I try to switch consoles.
4. saX2 does not start when using x.org. The error I have is:
xc: sorry could not start configuration server

5. xcompmgr and transset are very very slow on my machine. I have only enbaled "composite" in my xorg.conf.

I change my display configuration often, and I use two monitors a lot (my laptop display plus another monitor) so it is important for me to get back to the way things were.

Given that these things were working well before, I wanted to find out if there is a safe way to return to my old config?

any ideas would be much appreciated.

thanks in advance.

OK. I managed to reinstall the old X by using YaST to remove the new packages and then install the old ones.

cheers.

Suse is amazing.

 settrans - simplify

Here's an ugly little script which proves to be a great help when placed on the kicker bar:
(Just write this into some text file like transdialog.sh and make it executable , now add a button via kicker rightclick menu)

opacity=$(kdialog --title Transparency --inputbox "Opacity" .75)
/home/schmucker/xorg/xcompmgr/transset/transset $opacity



Now, if you want a window transparent, just click on the button, enter the opacity in the dialog and click the window you want to become transparent. Could it be any easier?

P.S. I'm on SuSe 9.1 as well and I dare say that, after enabling nvidia acceleration, Xorg works like a charm.
