I am totally new to Linux, migrating from Windows on my own (no friends etc who have Linux - so no help). I do not know much about the inner workings of operating systems and nothing about programing so these questions might be totally stupid, but I have not been able to figure out a solution after countless hours of trial and error.
I have a ThinkPad T61 with the Intel GM965 graphics card. The T61 came preloaded with SLED 10 but I did not get the cube working (i was unable to activate XGL for some reason). Now I have installed openSUSE 11 instead and added Compiz Fusion but I still can’t get the cube working. I have tried both the KDE 3.5 and 4 if that makes any difference.
I first enable desktop effects in the Simple CompizConfig Settings Manager. When I then activate the 3d cube it says that I must disable Windows Wall and enable GLX, which I then do. Everything looks fine but when I open up to check again the cube is deselected. Nothing else works either (wobbly windows etc.).
Please any input on this would be greatly appreciated,
