weird emerald problem with ATI card
« on: February 02, 2008, 07:39:06 am »
hey there,

I'm having trouble getting emerald to run... I have absolutely no clue as to how to fix this:

Code: [Select]
  SnAk3:/~
  snak3:$ killall xfwm4 && compiz --replace &&  export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=0 && fusion-icon -n
  compiz (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
  compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
  compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0
  SnAk3:/~
  snak3:$ export XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=0 && fusion-icon -n
   * Detected Session: xfce4
   * Searching for installed applications...
  Backend     : ini
  Integration : true
  Profile     : default
  Adding plugin decoration (decoration)
  Initializing decoration options...done
   * No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with direct rendering context
   ... present with indirect rendering, exporting: LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1
   * Using the GTK Interface
   * No module named gtk
   ... Trying another interface
   * Using the Qt4 Interface
   * No module named PyQt4
   ... Trying another interface
   * Using the Qt3 Interface
   * Interface not installed
   *** Error: All interfaces failed, aborting!

any ideas on how to fix this?

i have it working now, but it is kinda buggy :S Do you have the same problem?

for example, I can't run opera or ccsm, menus don't highlight, etc.

right now its unusable :(
