    reinstalling the latest nvidia drivers fixed my problem. It did blow out my restricted modules which caused me to lose my wifi... annoying, but everything is fine now.

    Glad that you got it fixed.

    That's the problem, apparently.
    Sorry, I have no experience with manually installed nvidia driver problems. You should consider starting a thread in a better fitting section of the forum about this.

    I would agree that is where the problem lies. Fixing it is what is stumping me! I did start a thread about this a few weeks ago. No replies..... Thanks for the help regardless.

    this is what I get after running the Compiz-check ... what do I have to do ?

    Distribution: Ubuntu 8.04
    Desktop environment: GNOME
    Graphics chip: nVidia Corporation GeForce 8500 GT (rev a1)
    Driver in use: nv
    Rendering method: None

    Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system... [SKIP]

    Checking for hardware/setup problems... [SKIP]

    At least one check had to be skipped:
    Error: No rendering method in use (AIGLX, Xgl or Nvidia)

    You need to install/enable the nvidia driver through System → Administration → Hardware Drivers

    I am watching your situation with great interest. I have a different card, 8400 GS, but other than that the Compiz that you just posted is identical.......

    Re: Compiz-Check -- no more "Desktop effects could not be enabled"

    Hey Forlong,
    As many others, I was attracted by the fancy graphic possibilities of Ubuntu. I installed Ubuntu on my pc a couple of days ago but - what do you know - I got the "desktop effects could not be enabled".
    Some browsing quickly brought me to these forums, and your thread was found quite immediate, too. I downloaded your program and when running, the first problem was that I got a black screen and was logged out. I haven't seen a similar problem on this thread, so I thought I'd post it.

    Here's some information about my system:

    Ubuntu 7.10 - Gutsy Gibbon
    Graphics card: VIA Technologies VT8378 [S3 UniChrome] Integrated Video

    I think you'll probably ask what driver I've installed, so I'll just reply: none that I know of. That must sound stupid, but I really don't know. On Gutsy, there's nothing like System > Administration > Graphics Driver, but I do have System > Administration > Screen and Graphics (although that might just be the translation...)

    I know, from previous tries, that the log out has something to do with the glxinfo. If I try that in the terminal, I'm logged out too. I believe it's a driver problem, but I really don't see how to solve it or where to download/install the correct driver.

    I really appreciate the effort you put in this script and thread and hope I don't cause you too much trouble.

    There should be System > Administration > Hardware Drivers or Restricted Drivers. The translations may have an impact..

    Thanks for your fast reply. Indeed, I can run the Restricted Drivers and I forgot to mention that the outcome is "Your hardware does not need any restricted drivers". I've never run it before, either...
