[kde-freebsd] Juk 3.2.1 problem solved; Desktop effects problem

Well, I upgraded a second box to 4.2, this time using the committed
ports. I ran into the same problem with juk that I'd encountered before.
I continued experimenting though, and found that the problem went
away when I switched phonon to use the gstreamer back-end instead
of the xine one.
Now, my main complaint about 4.2 is that I can't seem to enable
Desktop Effects. On both of my boxes, I had Desktop Effects working
using XRender. One has an Intel 82945G (945G GMCH) graphics, the
other has a nVidia 7300 running the latest nvidia driver. Neither one
will start up desktop effects in 4.2, either through XRender or OpenGL.
The Intel has DRI, but I'll admit it's pretty weak. The nVidia one though
has pretty good OpenGL performance... I can play UT2004, or Guild
Wars (in WINE) with no difficulties. Still, in 4.1.4 I had to use XRender
on it too. *shrug*
I'm currently on the Intel box. The only error messages I can find are
Object::connect: No such slot
Object::connect: (sender name: 'compositingType')
Object::connect: (receiver name: 'KWinCompositingConfig')
Anyways, any thoughts? I can send along my xorg.conf if anyone
thinks that would be informative.
