View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems with compiz and nvidia geforce 7100 on Intrepid

Hi everyone!

I have a big graphics problem when compiz is on. The screen displays lots of multi-colored pixels. Please look at the attachment. I have an Nvidia Geforce 7100 and the driver's version is 177(Nvidia accelerated graphics driver). Even when compiz is not enabled I have this graphics problem but it appears very rarely.

I also dual boot with windows and there is no problem there, so the graphics card is not defective.

Any help would be very useful.

Thank you,

Try Envy to install and uninstall nvidia or ati drivers.

A hit to thanks if this help you please :)

I did try that by installing envy before and uninstalling nvidia but compiz cannot run without nvidia's driver in ubuntu 8.10.

So I had to install nvidia 177.

Any other ideas?
