I moved (quite happily) to Mint now that you're not based on Ubuntu anymore -- I've moved away from ubuntu based on some disagreements with Shuttleworth's view of things.
One thing I wanted to give you guys a heads-up about: I can't seem to enable compiz. So far I've tracked this down to creating an Xorg.conf (Xorg -configure and copying the file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf) with the necessary settings for AIGLX (had to edit the xorg.conf) and subsequently installing just about everything with libgl1-mesa- in front of it.
I'm awaiting the installation of the libgl1 packages to complete and will report back with my findings.
I'm using an Intel GMA965 GPU (in my Lenovo Thinkpad)EDIT:
this doesn't appear to have solved things. In fact, libgl1-mesa-swx11 is the software renderer, which Compiz doesn't like, and it removes libg1-mesa-glx. However, a few of the packages to update relate to xorg video drivers, so we'll see how this goes.EDIT2: After installing, be sure to upgrade all xserver-xorg packages that want to upgrade, then reinstall libgl1-mesa-dri and libgl1-mesa-glx. Then kill xserver (ctrl-alt-f1, "sudo service gdm* stop") and run:
Code: Select all
sudo Xorg -configure
sudo cp xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
edit the xorg.conf as seen here: http://wiki.compiz.org/Intel%20with%20AiGLX
and then restart gdm (or restart your computer entirely)
That's what worked for me, at least.
