* For 1st generation radeons through 5th generation radeons use: ATI with AIGLX

  • For example: ATI Radeon 7000 (RV100)

* For 6th and 7th generation radeons use the fglrx drivers with AIGLX.

  • For example: ATI Radeon HD 2400 (RV610)

* For Older Radeon cards (R100, R200)

  • Users with older ATI Radeon cards, e.g. the Radeon Mobility 7500 card may be unable to start Compiz due to an incorrectly detected maximum texture size. To solve this, create a file at /etc/drirc with the following contents, then restart X:

    <device screen="0" driver="ati">
    <application name="all">
    <option name="allow_large_textures" value="2" />

* ATI Rage cards will not work with compiz

* OpenGL Composite Support was added in version 9.3 of the AMD Catalyst drivers. This news was covered by Phoronix at http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=amd_catalyst93_composite&num=1.
