Can GLX / Compiz cause, my OpenGL game apps work only in windowed mode?


I have Ubuntu 6.06 Drapper distro, with XGL ,and compiz installed.
After I installed Quake 3 Arena and Enemy Territory OpenGL based games, I experienced, this games work only windowed mode.
I tried to set in the Otions menu of this games into Fullscreen modes, but nothing happened. The games unvariably shown in windowed mode.

Could anyone help?

Here's my xorg.conf file:

Thanks Wolfdale!

This is is exactly, that I've been looking for!
I've checked the link, you submitted, but I haven't tried the solution, described on that page, yet. That will be my first task as soon as I arrive home!
