Default Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop Effects needs "Accelerated" Drivers

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 7.10 and I'm using the nVidia 100.14.19 drivers. I try to set desktop effects to normal mode, but it says I need "accelerated" drivers. Am I missing something?

You're missing nothing, perhaps a Ubuntu bug? You've got the drivers working well. Perhaps AllowGLXWithComposite and needs to be set, see http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-b.html

Code:
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation

of course if you are trying to enable ubuntu's desktop effects and you are using the 100.14.19 drivers you will get that bug. This is because ubuntu's simple desktop effects in feisty rely in you installing the restricted drivers (nvidia-glx) where as 100.14.19 (nvidia-glx-new) isnt directly supported in the code. My recommendation is get beryl or compiz (compiz fusion is so the best) to get the cube effects (also snow!!! cant wait till december :P)
