Minimum FPS for spinny cube desktop effects?
I'm running Fedora Core 6 i386 on this (moderately) old Dell 1.8Ghz somebody let me install linux on, and am just wondering what the minimum sort of fps rate you need in order to get the spinny cube with Beryl Desktop Effects working smoothly.
The card is an
" Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Intergrated Graphics Device " , using the standard mesa GL drivers.
Glxgears and some of the GL screensavers work well, and I am currently around 655fps. But is this sufficient fps to get that spinny cube /etc.?
NB. Which should I use: XGL, AIGLX, Compiz, or Beryl? I am a little confused about what the differences between them are... I'd also like to be able to have the effects on XFCE, if this should make any difference to the choice
