Re: [173.08]2D is very slow
oops...glyph cache works only on series 8/9....but I found Initialpixmapplacement=2 to help on kde 4 (only very slightly). I had always thought that the 2D slowness was restricted to 8/9 series cards
Whats worse is that I tried kde4 under vista and it runs super smooth, a lot better than under linux (it should be the opposite way around)
I read somewhere that running xgl makes things a lot faster esp regarding kde4. Of course then you can't change gfx settings and the other quirks associated with xgl.
