fusion-icon problems on solaris fixed

Do not use these packages anymore, instead install the latest version of OpenSolaris or nevada everything in integrated now.

I've ported fusion-icon (it's a tray icon that let you manage compiz fusion) to solaris and the new binary package for solaris x86 is included in my latest bundle.

It fixes problems related to :
- failure to startup from the menu.
- failure to start compiz.
- failure to detect which window manager was installed on the system.
- failure to switch window decorator.

If you are still experiencing problems let me know. 

If you want to start automatically compiz automatically at login :
- open the sessions preferences dialog [menu] -> [preferences] -> [sessions]
- in the "startup programs" tab add a "new startup program" with the following :
  name := Compiz fusion icon
  command := /usr/bin/fusion-icon
- next time you'll login your previous compiz and window decorator settings will be restored.

Comments:

Hi,

The 0.5.2 packages were working fine for me, but the new release seems to die on startup with a message "compiz (core) Fatal: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't going to work". I'm using an Intel i915 and 3d hacks (eg screensavers etc.) seem to be fine. There seem to be a lot of users with this problem lately, but I haven't seen any consistant advice on how to fix it. Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Geoff
