Hi again guys, I've been having a bit of trouble with XGL/Compiz Desktop Effects...
When I run gnome-xgl-settings
, the Desktop Effects Settings window comes up. I have an nVidia GeForce FX 5200 installed on the machine, Linux recognisees it under Hardware devices. However, Desktop Effects comes up with:
nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)
Underneath that it says:
Your graphics card is not known to be supported. It might or might not support Xgl, and it might or might not be able to run Xgl at full speed.
However, in order to use Xgl, you need to first install a special video driver for your video card. Press the button below to run the Software Updater tool to install this driver.
However, I know
for a fact that my graphics card is supported by XGL/Compiz.. and it is also listed in the xgl-hardware-whitelist. However it says otherwise.
When I click to run the Software Updater with the button underneath, it just says 'x11-video-nvidia' is not available or fully up to date.
Does anybody have any ideas?
