    Fail to query the GLX server vendor

    Hello everybody.

    I am a new ubuntu 9.04 user. I'm currently running it on a HP Pavilion dv6000 with an NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7400. I have a problem I cannot solve. I installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.51-pkg1.run providing me the right drivers for my graphic card. All seems to be fine but I can neither activate the "norma" or "extra" visual effects nor make compiz-fusion working. Apparently when I go into the NVIDIA Xserver settings, under the OPEN GL/GLX Information I have "Fail to query the GLX server vendor".

    Does anybody know what I should do to fix this trouble.

    Thank you so much in advance for your help.

    i got the same problem. Here is the output of compiz in terminal
    Code:
    Checking for Xgl: not present. 
    xset q doesn't reveal the location of the log file. Using fallback /var/log/Xorg.0.log 
    Detected PCI ID for VGA: 
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present. 
    Trying again with indirect rendering:
    Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present. 
    aborting and using fallback: /usr/bin/metacity
    I have an nVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS graphics card.

    I had a similar problem. I was getting lots of errors including both of the above issues since installing the latest NVidia drivers 180.51. I had to uninstall them and go back to the 180.44 drivers. Use this in the directory where you have the driver file downloaded:

    sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.51-pkg1.run --uninstall

    That totally fixed the problem for me. Nothing else seemed to work. I searched everywhere. There must be a problem with the 180.51 drivers and Ubuntu.

    Re: Fail to query the GLX server vendor

    Hi everyone,

    I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 with a NVIDIA GTX 295. I've got this message in the NVIDIA X Server Settings

    Code:
    Fail to query the GLX server vendor.
    I've installed driver 180.44. There's some incompatibility with 9.04?

    If this gonna help, there is my xorg.conf file.

    From now, thanks

    Re: Fail to query the GLX server vendor

    Hey, got exactly the same problem.
    I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 with Nvidia GeForce GO 7300 and currently installed Nvidia driver 180.44 with EnvyNG.
    Everything was running fine until when I tried to upgrade the driver to 180.60 and everything went wrong.
    In addition to the GLX message from the Nvidia X Server Settings cannot enable the Desktop Visual Effects and compiz-check fails.
    Have been spending the last few days looking around for solutions but nothing yet.
    Just saw on Nvidia website that they posted on 5th June a driver version 185.18.14 but I'm now scared to try..

    Re: Fail to query the GLX server vendor

    Hey guys, managed to fix my problem!
    Here is what I did:
    1) Run nvidia-bug-report.sh to generate nvidia-bug-report.log.
    (this log file will be placed in the current working directory that in my case was the home directory).

    2) Opened the nvidia-bug-report.log and scrollin down (it's quite a long file) I found
    [ 28.487014] NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 180.60, but
    [ 28.487017] NVRM: this kernel module has the version 180.44. Please
    [ 28.487018] NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
    [ 28.487019] NVRM: components have the same version.
    This problem appeared to be similar to the one I found in this thread http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=132346 and the suggestion was to remove all the nvidia stuff and re-install.

    3) Removed everything about nvidia following instructions fund in http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=481887
    sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-glx* nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-settings
    sudo rm /etc/init.d/nvidia-*
    sudo update-rc.d nvidia-kernel remove
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`
    (some of this instruction may be reduntant as they were referred to Ubuntu Feisty).
    I then rebooted. X crashed but I let Ubuntu fix it through the various options it was throwing at me and managed to get it running at low resolution.

    4) Re-installed driver 180.44 with EnvyNG (http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html, thanks Alberto!) and now everything works like a charm.
    Compiz-check gives all positive and same for the GLX drivers and glxinfo.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah...
    I'm not too sure if I'm just missing something, but this doesn't seem to be working for me... I'm running on a GTS250, so I'm not sure if there's a bit of discrepancy in detail here, but after three tries of this procedure, I'm still getting this "Fail to query the GLX server vendor" in my Nvidia X Settings... :/ Any other suggestions? I can't seem to find anything other than what has already been suggested.........

    Hi XanGabriel,
    have you tried run the nvidia-bug-report.sh and do you have the API mismatch in the nvidia-bug-report.log?
