You also need to make sure you are not using Xinerama. If you have dual
monitors you must use twinview to get composit working (don't ask me why
becaue this seems like a very dumb rule to me and I have yet to see an
explanation that makes sense to me for why this is required). Unfortuneately
using twinview introduces other problems that may or may not matter to you. I
have used KDE4 composit on my dual monitor setup with a GT7950 card using
twinview although I normally run Xinerama on my machine. I am hoping that at
some point soon I can start using the Nouveau driver (please let it be sooner
rather than later) so that I can stop putting up with this nonsense.
