I've tried to install the last radeonhd 1.3.0, upgrading xorg, mesa and kernel as well.
The 2D acceleration works perfectly for my needs, but I'm not be able to have the compositing in Gnome and Kwin.
Can I please have support to find out where is the issue?
Some info at http://pastebin.com/m40597c37 and I've enclosed some logs and conf files.
Thanks you very much!

According to glxinfo and the Xorg log file, you have 3D acceleration working. What happens when you try to enable compositing in KDE or gnome? Please attach the output of 'xdpyinfo'.

Thanks a lot Adam, really fast answer!!! Much appreciated.
This is the error message:
Failed to activate desktop effects using the given configuration options. Settings will be reverted to their previous values.
Check your X configuration. You may also consider changing advanced options, especially changing the compositing type.
Enclosed you have the xdpyinfo log
Unless someone else here has any ideas, this sounds like something you should take up with the KDE folks. 3D acceleration is enabled, compositing is enabled in the X server, but KDE is refusing to enabling its own compositing manager.

I'm not so sure... Unlucky I've the same problem in Gnome that use Compiz for the compositing.
Any idea how to find the right components that has the problem? I'd like to open a bug to right group... or do you advice anyay to start with kde?
What happens if you bring up a terminal and run 'LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 compiz --replace ccp &'? Do you get any errors or does compiz start up properly?

Hey, this is a good news!! It works!!!
I've switched to Gnome and executed it and it works.
So now I've the problem just in KDE, should it work as well with Kwin.
With the same hardware, I get a segfault, as detailed in bug 25281.
By me this problem is not fixed, I changed the status (sorry if it's a mistake).
Thanks a lot

This appears to be a kde configuration issue rather than a driver bug as according to your logs 3d is working and manually starting compiz works.
Thanks a lot.
I'll look further in that direction and post here the resolution if of any interest.
