I installed Kubuntu Quantal 64-bit fresh a few days ago, and I just today activated the binary nvidia driver. Before, I was missing animation effects for the desktop cube and blur (among others) but I didn't really pay any attention. But now I figured by installing the binary driver I would have these effects. Instead, I get this when I enable desktop effects in System Settings:
How does one get away with NOT having OpenGL in a Linux distribution? Is that even possible? I can't say I've ever been "missing" OpenGL the entire time I've been using Linux.
Blur effect requires OpenGL
Cover Switch effect requires OpenGL
Desktop Cube Animiation effect requires OpenGL
Startup Feedback effect requires OpenGL
Is this a bug?
