nvidia-glx-legacy & GLX errors


Ok, I've gotten the nvidia-glx-legacy drivers installed (My card is an MX200). I get the nVidia splash screen at start-up, so I'm positive they're installed properly. However, when I run anything that requires GLX (such as glxgears) I get this error:

Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't get an RGB, Double-buffered visual


Any ideas as to how to fix this?

Have you made the edits required to the xorg.conf or XFreeconfig file? (they are located in /etc/X11)

You may have been better off downloading the required file (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pkg1.run) from the Nvidia website and installing it yourself.

Do a search here for Nvidia there are numerous instructions on how to install and make the required changes to (hopefully) get your card working correctly.

With dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, I made sure that it was 'nvidia' that was selected and not 'nv'. I also made sure that GLX was being loaded in the xorg.conf, too.

Have a look at this thread, it seems some else had the same problem. The solution is near the bottom. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ay#post2498295

Thanks, but I don't believe the newer drivers are compatible with my card.
