    Textures do not load in 3d games, some screensavers slow.

    Hi.

    When I play FlightGear the textures do not load (the planes are black). Also, some screensavers don't run as fast as on my old (slower) computer.

    I am wondering what the problem is.

    My screen resolution is 1280x1024, in case that helps.

    Code:
    flyingfisch@Office-OptiPlex-745:~$ sudo lshw -C display
      *-display:0

    I remember reading somewhere that the i915 driver is bad but I don't know. Maybe its not even a graphics card problem. Any help would be great

    Also, I don't know why it says I have 2 displays... I only have 1.

    Did blacklisting the i915 driver do anything? I haven't tried it yet, but I was just wondering.

    I tried using "nomodeset" in grub, but all that happened was I lost my 3d support, and could not log in to Ubuntu 3D.

    GLXGears gives me 35fps without nomodeset and 25fps with it.

    Compiz check output (without nomodeset):

    Code:
    flyingfisch@Office-OptiPlex-745:~$ ./compiz-check

    Would you like to know more? (Y/n) y
    
     The vesa driver is not capable of running Compiz, you need to install
     the proper driver for your graphics card.

    Umm, bump. :-\

    EDIT:

    OK, even though I do not have a 64 bit version OS running and it seems unrelated, this worked for me: http://askubuntu.com/questions/73909...intel-graphics


    In compiz I added the two options in workarounds.

    EDIT2:

    That only worked for some 3D things. FlightGear looks like this. My old computer did better than that.
