Project Looking Glass


I know this isn't very popular, but I really like LG3D, except for one thing. It's lags so much I wonder if its related to windoze. I would like to know if there is something I need to change to make it run better.

Here are the LG3D requirements...

My stats...

I have a Intel Celeron D 3.333GHz processor, 1 Gigabyte of RAM, and an ATI Radeon Xpress 200m. Graphics card info here.

My xorg.conf file:
Code:
Section "Files"
	FontPath	"/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"
	FontPath	"/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"

I simply don't know what to look for that is causing the lag. Any ideas?

Thanks,

phantom

I have ran PLG in the past. It ran really slow. The PLG website says that thats due to the fact PLG isn't ready for production work yet. When it's finnished it will be faster.

Why not just use compiz-fusion? It works and has lots more eyecandy than LG3D.

I can't. It doesn't like my graphics card.

You should either switch to the latest ATI proprietary driver which just came to support AIGLX or use a open source driver.

They have been working on LookingGlass for something like 6 or 7 years now ? at least I recall checking out the project on Suns website back in 2000 or 2001...

At that rate I wouldn't be holding my breath for a completion date, since it's obviously not a high priority project for them.
