Comment 9 for bug 438000

I switched to metacity ( metacity --replace ), then connected the second screen (yes, it works!).

When I try to get back to compiz (compiz --replace), then I get the following error:

xset q doesn't reveal the location of the log file. Using fallback /var/log/Xorg.0.log
Detected PCI ID for VGA:
Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present.
Checking for non power of two support: present.
Checking for Composite extension: present.
Checking screen 1Comparing resolution (2560x1024) to maximum 3D texture size (2048): Failed.
aborting and using fallback: /usr/bin/metacity

This probably sums up the problem quite well.
