I have been trying to get the advanced graphics for compiz, emerald, and cairo dock working for a few days now, but alas, I have failed horribly. I tried to uninstall compiz and emerald a few days ago (stupidly) and since then, these problems have arisen. I tried seeking help on ubuntuforums.org, but they were unable to help. You can see the entire thread at the following link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1694800&page=2
If you want a detailed list of everything I've done, you can go to that site, but here's a summary:
I entered a series of code that I was lead to believe would eradicate compiz from my system so that I could go through with a full reinstallation. However, the result was that I now can't load any advanced graphics from emerald, compiz or cairo dock. I've tried reinstalling the entire operating system, but I'm getting the same problem. I also tried a live CD for 10.10, but with the same results.
I don't know if this is a relevant piece of information, but one thing of note is that I typed "compiz --replace" into the terminal and got the following:
WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXCreatePixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!
compiz (cube) - Warn: Failed to load slide: /usr/share/gdm/themes/Human/ubuntu.png
WARNING: Application calling GLX 1.3 function "glXDestroyPixmap" when GLX 1.3 is not supported! This is an application bug!
Again, I don't know if that helps at all, but there it is...
Gathering information about your system...
Distribution: Ubuntu 10.04
Desktop environment: GNOME
Graphics chip: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
Driver in use: intel
Rendering method: AIGLX
Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system...
Checking for texture_from_pixmap... [ OK ]
Checking for non power of two support... [ OK ]
Checking for composite extension... [ OK ]
Checking for FBConfig... [ OK ]
Checking for hardware/setup problems... [ OK ]
Sorry about the problem. I just didn't understand why you wanted it posted at your link... But there it is.
OK, looking good. Are you trying to get compiz back up and running, or just your drivers working?
Compiz is working, at least sort of. I'm able to use the cube functions and all that, but the animations like Burn can be selected but don't show up. In addition, similar animations for cairo dock are also not showing up.
