GoogleEarth still runs slower than dirt, but I've been having that problem on this laptop since it was first ported to Linux. I have a a 945GM, by the way.

    Thank you psyke!
    I'm running Jaunty on a HP Mini 2140 with the GMA950 card. I can only use the Safe config with stock kernel and updated X drivers - EXA is fast enough for Compiz while enabling UXA means the computer doesn't wake from sleep properly. Using the Optimal or Bleeding Edge configs, while faster, ended up hosing support for the Broadcom Wi-fi card due to the new kernel.

    How can I run Intrepid X drivers on a Jaunty install? Can the existing Jaunty stock kernel be used or do I have to switch to the Intrepid kernel? I'd love to eke out a bit more performance in Tuxracer

    Thanks!

    psyke83,

    I'd like to thank you. This guide helped me with my tearing problems on my Intel G31.

    Thanx!

    Sweet!!! The Safe Configuration worked for me! Here are the results of lspci on my machine:
    Code:

    3f:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5755 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
    FYI I also set "Tiling" to "false" like it says in the Part A Step 1 note. I hope this helps anyone else who has the same chipset/mobo/graphics as me.

    I recently upgraded from 8.1 to 9.04 and noticed a bit of a slow down. I noticed my CPU load stayed around 2.00 while running Virtual Box and Firefox. My system was usable but I could definitely feel the slow down.

    I eventually came across this thread and safe config works for me. I haven't tried the Optimal or Bleeding Edge configs but I don't see a need to if the safe config works.

    Thank you psyke83 and all the contributors for this thread!

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Thanks - I had all the xorg.conf options from the guide... - I was quite careful when doing that.
    The barebones xorg.conf that I have now was obtained after rolling back..
    Best,

    Here are instructions for reverting to the Intrepid intel drivers. There's no need to install a different kernel, the stock Jaunty kernel works fine for this. It's also really easy to switch back to the Jaunty drivers if this doesn't work out for you. How to is here:

    Best of luck!

    Extra VISUAL effects still cannot be enabled.

    I am new to UBUNTU and i need help.

    I have spent many hours on the internet to solve this problem. But still cannot find any.

    I have the same graphic chip and it is blacklisted in Compiz, hence no visual effects

    The 2.6.30 kernel is pretty buggy when it comes to resume from suspend.

    I did notice that things seem far less stable with compiz's wobbly windows enabled (specifically, using shiver on window mapping). There may be something more specific happening with that feature that isn't intel-related -- but that's far from certain.
    Looks like I was right. Freeze-free performance (using xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.7.99.1+git20090605.66ceedc0-0ubuntu0sarvatt2~jaunty) since that post until now after disabling wobbly windows, even when trying to induce freezes purposefully. Where should compiz bugs get reported?

    Don't report these kind of bugs against compiz - it's clearly an Intel driver bug. Read the guide thoroughly (Important Note -> Reporting Bugs) - you're using xorg-edgers, so you can't report bugs to Launchpad. You can report them upstream if you want, though.

    Thank you very much for this thread - just made me stop returning to arch linux for now
    Compiz runs fine on a Thinkpad T61 w. X3100 using the "bleeding edge" method.
