    Red face Problems with Compiz

    Hi

    I wanna use Compiz to customize my desktop, but I cant make it run. This is what happens when I type "compiz" in the terminal:

    maja@maja:~$ compiz
    Checking for Xgl: not present.
    Detected PCI ID for VGA: 00:02.0 0300: 8086:27a2 (rev 03) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present.
    Trying again with indirect rendering:
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: present.
    Checking for non power of two support: present.
    Checking for Composite extension: present.
    Comparing resolution (1280x800) to maximum 3D texture size (2048): Passed.
    Checking for nVidia: not present.
    Checking for FBConfig: present.
    Checking for Xgl: not present.
    /usr/bin/compiz.real (video) - Warn: No 8 bit GLX pixmap format, disabling YV12 image format
    GConf backend: There is an unsupported value at path /apps/compiz/plugins/scale/allscreens/options/initiate_edge. Settings from this path won't be read. Try to remove that value so that operation can continue properly.

    My computer is a HP dv6203 (6200-series).

    I'm not a killer on this one so please help me.

    Checking for Xgl: not present.
    /usr/bin/compiz.real (video) - Warn: No 8 bit GLX pixmap format, disabling YV12 image format
    GConf backend: There is an unsupported value at path /apps/compiz/plugins/scale/allscreens/options/initiate_edge. Settings from this path won't be read. Try to remove that value so that operation can continue properly.

    Most likely you'll need to do:
    Code:
    $ compiz --replace
    Would you expect nVidia to be present? What video card to you have?
