I cannot get 3D acceleration or Compiz to work with Linux Mint. If I boot off a Knoppix DVD, wobbly windows etc. work and seem to be fine. So the hardware must be capable, if I knew what files or settings to copy from Knoppix, it should be possible to get graphics working in Mint.
I am using Linux Mint 12 with MATE. I like Mint, and I like MATE, apart from a couple of little niggles it is working fine for me. I don't want to move to Knoppix. But I would like to be using the proper screen driver.
If I run compiz-check, I get:
- Code: Select all

The vesa driver is not capable of running Compiz, you need to install
the proper driver for your graphics card.
Anyone know how to copy a graphics setup?
