    Nvidia restricted driver = invisible menus when using VNC

    I'm installing 9.04 on a box that was running 8.04. It's an HTPC, so I often VNC in to work on it from my laptop.

    After the initial install, I updated everything, and it all went fine. I was able to VNC in with no problems.

    I then installed the 180.xx (I forgot; it was whatever the default option was) nvidia drivers and rebooted. Everything worked fine on my TV, but when I VNC'd into it, all I could see was the background and title bar. When I'd pull down a menu, the menu was visible on the TV but not over the VNC link.

    I assume that means the GUI started using some sort of overlay for the menus, which is fine, but what's the best way to make them visible over VNC?
