Compiz-check - Vesa driver problem

Postby ris1989 on Sun Jun 19, 2011 7:52 pm

I can't run compiz, I used a script compiz-check and it gives this output:

Code: Select all
Gathering information about your system...

Distribution:          Linux Mint
Desktop environment:   GNOME
Graphics chip:         Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) (rev 03)
Driver in use:         vesa
Rendering method:      AIGLX

Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system...  [SKIP]

Checking for hardware/setup problems...           [SKIP]

At least one check had to be skipped:
Error: vesa driver in use

Would you like to know more? (Y/n)    y

The vesa driver is not capable of running Compiz, you need to install
the proper driver for your graphics card.

I can't configure my intel driver, on other distro I just change the xorg.conf file but LMDE doesn't have it.
There is a way to change the default driver to Intel?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
