    DXTn texture support

    I'm looking for support for DXTn textures.
    It appears alot of my 3D graphics fritz.
    I ran worldwind in terminal and got the following error message:

    May 6, 2009 5:28:12 PM gov.nasa.worldwind.layers.TextureTile initializeTexture
    SEVERE: Exception attempting to read texture file
    javax.media.opengl.GLException: DXTn compressed textures not supported by this graphics card

    Heres my graphics controller:
    Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller

    I'm running 8.10 on a Dell Inspirion with Intel Core2
    Any suggestions?

    Also, the image actually renders for a second, I see it and then it dissappears

    From http://forum.worldwindcentral.com/sh...ad.php?p=45020

    sudo apt-get install driconf
    driconf

    Under "Image Quality" change "Enable S3TC ..." to yes.

    Save.
