    Driver "nvidia"
    to
    Code:
    Driver "nv"
    Reboot, and hopefully you'll have your gui back.
    ok. well i reverted to an old log file and its fixed....but why did it do that?
    its weird.
    maybe i should try...installing all the other nvidia drivers?? maybe?

    Open /etc/X11/xorg.conf and check that you have
    Code:
        Load "glx"
    In the section
    Code:
    Section "Modules"
    Here's what mine looks like, but my hardware is different to yours, so don't pay any attention to the other modules.
    Code:
    Section "Module"
        Load    "GLcore"
        Load    "i2c"
        Load    "bitmap"
        Load    "ddc"
        Load    "dri"
        Load    "extmod"
        Load    "freetype"
        Load    "glx"
        Load    "int10"
        Load    "type1"
        Load    "vbe"
    EndSection

    Funnily enough I now have the same error, while doing some OpenGL. I believe the trick is to install graphics card drivers to get GLX hardware acceleration. Try that.

    well its working now. thx much
    can u help me with something else ? :P pwease?
    im trying to install aim on linux.
    they just released it for linux. its beta but still i want to try it.

    http://www.aim.com/get_aim/linux/latest_linux.adp?aolp

    i downloaded the tgz and started to install it and i get this problem:
    Code:
    david@david-desktop:~$ /usr/bin/aim
    /usr/bin/aim: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    now im pretty sure i get libstdc++ install and libc6 install 2.
    i dont get it.... its weird

    also i cant thank you enough for helping me out.
    It seems like ur the only one who's been helping me with this bforbes

    So the graphics card drivers fixed it?

    I'm not too sure about this shared library. It seems like it should come with libstdc++ or libc6. You could try getting a different libstdc++. I noticed that there's a couple different versions. Also, sometimes you have to just make a symbolic link to the library you already have, because the names are different. Here's the libstdc++ libraries I have:
    Code:
    /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.0.2/32/libstdc++.so
    /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.0.2/32/libstdc++.a
    /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.0.2/libstdc++.so
    /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.0.2/libstdc++.a
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.7
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.5
    You can get a list of yours with:
    Code:
    sudo find /lib /usr/lib/ /var/lib -name "libstdc*"
    Type:
    Code:
    ldd /usr/bin/aim
    That will list all the libraries it links to, or wants to link to. Try linking libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 to one you actually have. For example, if the output from ldd is:
    Code:
    bforbes@ben:~$ ldd /usr/bin/aim
            libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 => /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2
    And you have the libraries that I listed above, you could try:
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2
    Give that a shot.

    EDIT: Your welcome. Make sure you help others out when you can. It could be something really easy that you already know, which could stop some poor soul going back to Windows out of fustration.

    yea installing more graphics card drivers seemed to work oddly enough.

    i did the find thing for libstc++ and got this:

    also i did the thing were u look for links that it wants and got this:
    Code:
    david@david-desktop:~$ ldd usr/bin/aim
    usr/bin/aim: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: file too short
    it does that 2 when i try and run the program.
    I typed the ldd thing right and everything.
    just weird.
    at least it knows that its there..just not long enough of a file :P
    o yea and a while back i was one who went to linux got mad and went back to windows...it was horriable. windows is really tough.
    in a sence harder then linux in some cases :P
    o i tried to install all of the libstc++ files i could find just to see if it would work...so that's why there are a lot of the files ^^^^ up there. :P

    Hmm. I'll try installing AIM when I get the chance. Keep a watch on this thread.
