    320M no vis effects on 8.04

    how do i get visual effects? system > administration > hardware drivers says i´m not using any proprietary drivers so i´m guessing the open source driver is what i´m using (preferred because i like to be able to hibernate since my battery life is horible).

    Re: 320M no vis effects on 8.04

    and why does my xorg.conf not have anything specified for drivers or monitors? i tried to initialize the driver and it came back saying there wasn´t a line for a driver and pulled a segmentation fault.

    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
            Identifier      "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier      "Default Screen"
            Monitor         "Configured Monitor"
            Device          "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
