Unhappy Radeon 9800 Pro versus OpenGl


Hello
I am a complete newbie about Ubuntu, have Ubuntu 10.10 installed. Somehow Cairo-dock OpenGl refuses to work, the display appearances will only work in its poorest mode and so forth... Webupd8 tells that Cairo Dock OpenGl now works with the very latest Open Source drivers for ATI and Intel video cards. Is there anything I can do to my Radeon 9800 Pro to get it working?
Help, anybody???

Hi Adam

Good to hear someone responding.
As I said, I am a complete idiot about Ubuntu, tell me where to look for "glxinfo", the terminal???
(Donīt feel very comfortable trying to get into this from Windows...)

Run 'glxinfo' from a terminal and show us the output of the command.

It tells us that your drivers are just fine. What happens if you try to enable visual effects in system --> preferences --> appearances --> effects?

It keeps looking for drivers, after a while it tells me that it cannot take any special effects into use. Only the poorest one is enabled (the first one), all the others are off limits!!!

What happens if you bring up a terminal and try to start compiz with 'compiz &' ?

Run 'metacity --replace &' if you can. If not, log out, log back in or restart X. What's the output of 'xrandr'.

Did "system - preferences - appearances - effects" once more, that restored my screen to normal. xrandr gave me this:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-0 connected 1280x1024+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 337mm x 270mm
1280x1024 60.0*+
1024x768 60.0
800x600 60.3
640x480 60.0
720x400 70.1
S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

To be more specific, glxgears told me this :

IRQ's not enabled, falling back to busy waits: 0 1
Running synchronized to the vertical refresh. The framerate should be
approximately the same as the monitor refresh rate.
300 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.825 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.038 FPS
298 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.419 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.015 FPS
298 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.418 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.006 FPS
301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.027 FPS
298 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.408 FPS
XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0.0"
after 2541 requests (2540 known processed) with 0 events remaining.


Any conclusions from that???

Your output from glxgears is normal. And the output from xrandr shows that you are only using one monitor. By all accounts, compiz should work fine. What's the output of 'dpkg -l | grep compiz' ?
