    3D Desktop, Whered it go!!


    Hi,
    ive come back linux mandriva after a break......

    the last version i had used a beautiful 3D desktop (stretching, squashing, bouncing windows... kicks vistas ass)

    having a look at videos of mandriva 2007, all this is supposed to be fully integrated now as opposed to add on.
    under configure i have the 3D icon and started this up after installing drivers for my nvidia card.

    if i use the AIGLX option there is no effect on my desktop

    if I use the Xgl option i get a white square then a full white screen?

    i run KDE
    my system is fully up to date

    does any one have any ideas?

    Is Mandriva using Beryl? I found that by setting the option with beryl manager to use 'Copy' as the rendering path fixed this problem. You should be able to see it on the beryl-manager right-click menu.

    tried

    after reading your reply i looked at beryl

    i installed it and after a little play uninstalled.

    i lost all task bars, only half my svcreen was usable etc..........


    not good

    under 3d desktop when enabled, the AIGLX option has no effect yet the Xgl is white but i have found that i can spin desktops, just cant see anything?


    thank you for the help so far

    The classical "white cube" problem

    Google for it, a lot of results
