I have a Dell XPS M1710 Laptop with an nVidia GeForce Go 7900 GS (rev a1) Video Card.
When trying to run 'compiz' from the terminal, I recieve the following output:
Checking for Xgl: not present.
No whitelisted Driver found
aborting and using fallback: /usr/bin/metacity
I tried going into System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, unchecking the nvidia_new driver, restarting and then rechecking the nvidia_new driver and restarting to no avail.
In that window, although the nvidia_new is checked, to the right of it is a red dot that says 'Not in use'. I'm not sure why.
I openly admit that I am a novice user. I have gone through this (and several other) forums with no luck.
What else can I do at this point to get compiz fusion working?
Thanks in advance.
