This test case tests whether compositing_manger setting of metacity is successful with the Intel video driver, with kernel mode setting enabled. You must be using a video adapter supported by the driver, and Fedora 11 or later (or Rawhide from any time after mid-February 2009).

How to test

  1. Ensure the 'nomodeset' kernel parameter is not enabled in your bootloader configuration
  2. Ensure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist, or is a known-good configuration file that uses the 'intel' driver
  3. Shut your system down entirely, then start it up again
  4. Run gconf-editor (yum install gconf-editor)
  5. Follow apps->metacity->general from navigation toolbar left, check 'compositing_manager' checkbox. See whether everything works fine.

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.
