ok, the odd's at my end. i tried downloading the file from winxp (running in parallels) and no problem.. i simply can't access some websites from OSX!!



the none working sites so far: the above mentioned / youtube. .. i have tried it with safari, firefox and camino... NONE WORK!!!

if anyone has an idea of what might have gone pearshaped let me know.


EDIT: it was too obvious.. it was peer guardian.. how can i turn off http blocking.. aargh.-

I added Quartz Simple to my startup list but I still need to disable Beam Sync every time. Isnt there a way with Automator or with an applescript to have it done autmaticaly? because I really notice the difference

In Terminal, just type this command and it is disabled for all reboots:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0

After doing
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0
is there any way to get BeamSync back?

It's making weird colours when I open x-chat

Why when I open Quartzsimple and click in tool >>> I can not use Quartz 2D Extreme because It said that "Quartz 2D Extreme not supported"? :D

I changed the "deferredUpdates 1" to "deferredUpdates 0" but it does nothing for me...
When I open the plist I see "deferredUpdates 0" but when I reboot the BeamSync remains loaded...
The only way for me was put quartzdebug on startup and disabe manually the beamsync every time I reboot my PC...

Sorry, my english is so so... but I think is understandable ^^

You want QuartzSimple.

Follow the QE2D link in my sig (which takes you back to posting #1 of this thread!). Be sure to Force-Quit the program or it will undo your setting when it closes.

If you are referring to this:

1. Download QuartzSimple (Mirrored on my website, Click Here)
2. Copy Quartz Debuug to your Applications Folder and open it


There is a typo there. You download QuartzSimple. Then you copy QuartzSimple to your Applications folder.

However, to get Quartz Debug:

Go to Apple Developer site: http://developer.apple.com

Sign up as the lowest level developer - it's free.

Download the XCode development environment (around 900 MB).

Then either install the whole thing, or use Pacifist (download from Charlessoft) to examine the PKG installer file and extract the Quartz Debug tool from one of the folders like Apps or Utilities or Tools.

ok rammjet, so i had a fresh install of 10.4.6 (JaS) and I even copied and pasted your line directly into the terminal and when I rebooted, no Quartz 2D Extreme. I didn't install 10.4.7 (I could though) but that didn't work for me...any other ideas? I'll keep looking around and if I find something, I'll mention it here.

The terminal command:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0

is for disabling BeamSync. This speeds up performance with LCD monitors.

To enable QE2D, you should run QuartzSimple, enable Quartz Extreme 2D and then Force Quit QuartzSimple. If you simply quit QuartzSimple, it will disable QE2D as it quits. See the first posting of this thread.

There is an edit to be made to the windowserver.plist to enable QE2D, but I don't know it off the top of my head.
