    Compiz with intel 82845G/GL video card on intrepid

    Does anyone know of a workaround to get compiz working with the intel driver? I know there were several bugs filed about this during Intrepid's development, but the workarounds were to uninstall compiz. Not a real workaround in my opinion. I should mention that compiz did work on this computer in Hardy and before.

    I think it is really sad that this hasn't been fixed, particularly now that Intrepid has been released.

    also, what changed that caused this chipset (correct term?) to break?

    I completely agree.

    Hardware we've been using for a couple of years is all of a sudden "buggy"

    This fixed it for me, and I have compiz working again on my 82845G/GL:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...833/comments/8

    All of the bug reports in launchpad about this problem seem to blame it on the intel driver. I think it is really caused by changes in the structure of the xorg configuration files.

    Has this been fixed in the new Kernel 2.6.29.29?

    I don't think it's a kernel problem or a driver problem. It's a problem with settings necessary for running compiz being lost during the upgrade from Hardy Heron to Intrepid Ibex, due to a change in the way x settings are stored.

    I have no experience with a fresh install of Intrepid, I think there are other issues affecting this video card that complicate that.

    I don't think this is an issue of settings not being saved, but an issue of settings not being properly detected by the xserver. This issue happens on any installation intrepid, whether it is a fresh install or an upgrade from hardy.
