This test case tests whether compositing_manger setting of metacity is successful with the Nouveau driver.

How to test

  1. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a valid file that uses the nouveau driver. If you are using the live image, ignore this step
  2. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  3. Install gconf-editor by typing su -c 'yum intsall gconf-editor'
  4. Next, run the command gconf-editor
  5. In the navigation toolbar on the left, follow appsmetacitygeneral, and enable the compositing_manager checkbox.

Expected Results

  1. The graphical desktop should be displayed correctly when 'compositing_manager' is checked
  2. With metacity's compositing enabled, window shadows and ALT-TAB with window screenshots should be displayed correctly.
