Installed the new compiz-fusion everything good until I started xine to play a short video got this in terminal...
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.5.
(c) 2000-2007 The xine Team.
xiTK WARNING(_x_error_handler:258): X error received: 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  20 (X_GetProperty)
  Resource id in failed request:  0xe00072
  Serial number of failed request:  43
  Current serial number in output stream:  43

When I change my selection to window manager Xfwm4 from compiz icon, xine runs fine.

I want to try compiz fusion, but gslapt says I need libgsf-1.14.7-i586-2vl59. I can only find 1vl59. Looked in testing, extra, patches and packages.

Installed along with libgsf-1.14.7-i586-1vl59.  Open windows wouldn't react to mouse unless max/restore cycled for each mouse action.  When attempting to logout, logout screen blank.  Found this item on the compiz-fusion website
       http://forlong.blogage.de/article/pages/Compiz-Check.  Ran it, and was told I need libdmx.  Gslapt libdmx, problem fixed. Will not show video in VLC.  Running VL5.9 Light RC1, LXDE.
