Cannot open /usr/bin/compiz


Hi Guys,

I'm trying to bypass "Blacklisted PCI ID 8086:2562 detected" as mentioned in many tutorials by editing /usr/bin/compiz but could not open the file
with this error.

gedit has not been able to detect the character encoding.
Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file.
Select a character encoding from the menu and try again.

can someone help me?

Normally when you get the message you have tried to open a binary which is nothing but 0's and 1's. But I look at the file and its a shell script. I open just fine for me with gedit. So Im not sure why you are getting that issue. try using
"sudo gedit /usr/bin/compiz"

Hi!

You can skip blacklist checks by Compiz if you run;
Code:
./compiz-check
...and follow the instructions.

As for the Gedit thing, you can have a look here; http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1578615

Hi again, nuxnoob!

If you are still with us and with Linux, tell us the name of the package that you have downloaded? Does it end with .bin or .run or alike?

Post the output of:
Code:
./compiz-check
and
Code:
compiz
Tell us more about your machine and post one more output:
Code:
sudo hwinfo --gfxcard
Enter password when asked.
