i use since NewYear 2013 LMDE with cinnamon DE.
Unfortunately I have a old one PC with a nvidia graphic adapter GeForce GT8500!
I was wondering all this time what exactly is Compiz and some days ago i watch some videos on youtube! wWwoOowWw! the only i have to say!
After that i try the command:
- Code: Select all
like shown in this video --> video
After that i was trying to make the command running at StartUp but i get the Oh No! Screen.
After removing it from the StartUp i was wondering why it don't work. And i read that i need a 3D acceleration but how can i check or how can i install a 3D acceleration?
However i try to install nvidia-settings from Software-Manager but it was a disaster because i get some ugly screen talking about not good configuration of X server etc.
I solve it by removing nvidia-setting via apt-get an make some new xorg.conf file...etc.
But now i have lost the sound and every time i login i have to unplug and replug the keyboard/mouse-dongle to make the mouse pointer moving. Also my other HDD (windows) is not shown in Computer as before the try of nvidia-settings installation, but it is shown in GRUB!
My basic Question is how can i make compiz work? ( e.g. only the wobbly windows effect )
My second question is how can i check if a have a 3D acceleration or how can i install one?
My last question is how can i get back my sound working and not needing unplug/replug the mouse dongle? and to be visible again (like before) my other HDD.
thanx for help!
p.s. sorry about my terrible English ...i am a poor Greek
