What information do we exactly need to know in order to sort out the VGA problem? I mean I just simply need the detailed info on the VGA? That's it?
EDIT:here is the info I extracted using that inxi command. So.....the rendering says "yes". I do have 3-d acceleration. When I used cinnamon everything looked good...but I just had this problem that every now and then when using the expo mode or scale mode...it got slow.
