    In Ubuntu Maverick all you need to do is install the package libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental from the Universal archive, and deactivate the proprietary nvidia driver via System / Administration / Additional Drivers.

    I also don't see any references to VDPAU in this thread. Any support for that? I thought it was pretty much an open interface, but I could certainly be wrong.

    Nouveau currently doesn't support VDPAU or any other media offload API.

    Hi,

    is this guide valid for Ubuntu 11.04?
    I cannot go through passage 3 of part A. After executing sudo Xorg -configure it says "number of created screens does not match number of detected devices".
    My hardware configuration is:
    Acer Aspire 5635WLMi
    Intel Core 2 Duo processor T7200
    nVidia GeForce Go 7300 128 MB
    2 GB DDR2

    Yes, it was tested for 11.04. The error might be due to nvidia proprietary drivers. After running the command, is "xorg.conf.new"
    file created? If it's created, could you upload it somewhere? Do you have xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/? Did you stop gdm server as mentioned in the guide?

    In the meanwhile I tried many installing/uninstalling operations so I am not sure whether nvidia drivers are completely uninstalled or not.
    After running the command, "xorg.conf.new" is in fact created in my home directory. I pasted its content at the end of this post.
    I did have a xorg.conf file in /etc/X11/ but after uninstalling nvidia drivers it prevented me to run the desktop manager so I deleted it (or left it completely blank). Now I am able to start desktop manager but only in low resolution mode (1024x768, while correct is 1280x800).
    Yes, I stopped gdm server as mentioned in the guide.

    Thanks for help.

    If you actually left xorg.conf blank, you should just delete it.
    The reason for getting low resolution, most probably is that you are using vesa instead of nouveau drivers (2D nouveau drivers should be installed by default in ubuntu - check if you have xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package installed).
    You could try deleting two Screen sections which identifiers are "Screen1" and "Screen2" (only leave Screen0) in xorg.conf.new, then rename xorg.conf.new to xorg.conf, copy it to /etc/X11 and try to restart. For some reason, you have two additional screens and two additional VGA cards listed, both of which are using wrong drivers for some reason.
