Hey guys,

I am an absolute newbie so please pardon if im a lil slow on the uptake lol. Im running ibex (installed 10 min ago lol)

When i typed in cpmiz-manager into the terminal i got this...

Checking for Xgl: not present.
Detected PCI ID for VGA:
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 Software Rasterizer: Not present.
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

now i assume this means that i lack the necessary drivers or hardware to run it... i doubt its the hardware because I posted a topic a few says ago and someone with the same hardware as me was running it cube and all just fine...

Im running a toshiba laptop with an intel dual core 1.6 1.7gh processor 2gig of ram and the "intel chipset" for a graphics card. intel should be suppprted so i have no idea where to go from here lol.

Lovin Ubuntu cant wait to love it more!

Thanks in advance everyone!

if need be i can fall back to vista (im using wubi) if i need to find more info as i have no clue how thru ubuntu yet lol

oh also... since i typed that in i have the whole wiggly window thing going on but no other effects or ways to edit them as the manager wont open.

Have you installed the provided drivers for your video card?

December 12th, 2008, 02:33 AM
how do you do that? I updated the system but i didnt do any special installing

Go to System->Advanced->Hardware drivers and see if there is an intel driver for you to enable. After that, try enabling compiz.
