Without the line in xorg.conf. the extension still tries to load and I get the
error message. I did get a reply off list from Darren Kirby who's reply
on-list didn't post:
control center --> Window behavior --> Translucency
uncheck "use translucency/shadows"
I finally found where to disable the translucency and diabled it. No more
annoying messages. Thanks again Darren.
