Depending on the kind of graphics card or integrated graphics solution installed on your computer, there are different steps involved in preparing them for a 3D composited desktop. The guides below, organised by manufacturer, will discuss your options, inform you about potential problems, and show you sample configurations that have been known to work well for most people.

Thanks.
I run compiz-check (the script to know if compiz is ok) and the answer is:

./compiz-check
No protocol specified
xdpyinfo: unable to open display ":0.0".
No protocol specified
/usr/bin/xset: unable to open display ":0.0"

Gathering information about your system...

Help me.
The asus eeepc 901 works without problem with ubuntu, guadalinex, auroraos...with compiz. In all of them glxinfo and glxgears runs without prblems

I have exacly the same problem, need glx support for Google-Earth and Java rendering libraries.

I ran:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri libgl1-mesa-glx

Then:
Code: Select all
bulva@Emperor ~ $ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card Intel Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller X.Org 1.7.7 Res: 1280x800@60.0hz, 848x480@30.0hz
           GLX Renderer N/A GLX Version N/A
bulva@Emperor ~ $

So nothing, even after restarting X's. I noticed there is no xorg.conf under /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Ran:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
and pasted there:
Code: Select all
Section "Device"
   Identifier   "Configured Video Device"
   Driver   "intel"
EndSection


Works for now.
