Software :: Fedora 14 Video Card - Hardware Cannot Support Visual Effects
Apr 4, 2011
I recently installed fedora 14 on my Asus laptop with Nvidia GEForce 130m Cuda Video card. I installed the nvidia drivers, but when I go to configure any sort of visual effects in systemsettings it says Code: Your hardware cannot support visual effects due to the following problem: The problem is that it gives no problems for me to fix! How can I find out what the issue is?
I have ubuntu 9.10 I have the ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3600 Series [1002:9598]video card. I dont know what it is but i want to enable extra visual effects. unfortunally a message stating "searching for drivers" appears, eventuall folowed by " Visual Effects can not be enabled" i think this is due to the drivers obviosly.
what are the drivers I need for linux (if any) for my specific video card? what do I need to do? also which video card are best fit for ubuntu/ linux? note: I dont know what it is, but originally when I first installed ubuntu I did something and the visual effects had worked had worked and up until recently i may or may not have of messed with any thing could i have of touched something
I'm using a Gateway LT3103u running a dual boot of Win 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 (separate partitions) and ever since I've started using Ubuntu (last October) I've had persistent graphic card problems.
My graphics card is the ATI Radeon X1270.
Right now I can't use any visual effects because of I do the screen spazzes out and becomes unusable. This isn't a big deal for me since I don't use them but I figured it's relevant to the problem.
Even with visual effects off I still have problems and at times parts of the menu will stay on the screen in a little box which covers any windows that open beneath it. The only way to get rid of it is to turn visual effects on so the screen resets then hit use previous settings.
I have a Geforce 9300 GS installed in my machine I am using 64 bit Gnome with a 64 bit system I downloaded this: Now my video won't show any effects and the Nvidia card won't work? This doesn't make any sense. Frustration to the max. I should have stayed with Fedora 10 at least it worked with downloadable drivers.
I am using a Dell Latitude E6510 with QM57/QS57 Intel GMA HD chipset video card, when I am installing the Fedora 14, if I choose the 'Install the new system or update an existing system', it goes to blank screen.if I choose the 'Install system with basic video driver', it starts to install.BUT I cannot use the desktop effects, the Stellarium, etc, it says that 'accelerated 3D graphics is not available'. Even I have updated my kernel to 18.104.22.168-91.fc14.i686. As far as I know, QM57 do support a 3D graphics, what should I do to drive it to work.
I have installed Fedora 10 on my laptop, but I cannot start GUI at all. Besides, I cannot get sounds, either.... lspci gives me following infos: 00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. AC97 Audio Controller 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. Integrated Video my laptop is a little bit out of date, sound card and video card are integrated.
im using the ubuntu distro and when i goto the visual effects tab and click on normal or extra, it says "desktop effects could not be enabled" also, i have Two hdd's, a 100GB that has windows 7 and ubuntu. and a 250GB that has Windows XP. GRUB didnt notice windows xp though, so its not a boot option.
I'm running Karmic Koala 64 bit on my Lenovo T400 laptop with switchable graphics having both Intel and ATI video cards. I've set my bios to use the intel card only and turned the automatic switching off. So far so good, but I'd like to turn on compiz for basic window animations. When I try to start compiz by selecting
doesn't show any new drivers that could be installed. This was working out of the box when I first installed Karmic Koala a few month ago, but things got messed up when I installed the restricted drivers for my ATI card. Now I can enable compiz if I switch to ATI from my bios settings and install the drivers but I don't want to use it due to high power consumption and I've removed the ATI drivers.
Here is my xorg.conf file:
Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection
I like the Visual Effects tab feature. I noticed that is gone from Ubuntu 11.04 and subsequently from distros based on it such as Linux Mint 11.The image attached is of Ubuntu 10.10. How would I get the None and Normal effect settings in Ubuntu 11.04Linux Mint 11?
I'm a new Mandriva user,and have no clue about Linux system,but to be honest I don't want to use Windows product anymore. So I got the Mandriva 1 Spring Gnome,and installed it on my DELL Optiplex Desktop,works fine and very fast,therefore I decided to do the same with my Studio XPS 1640,but after I got a dark screen,so I used an external display(My TV) then realized that it doesn't support the video card on it ( ATI Radeon HD4670 ),and I don't know what to do.
I am having a bad slowdown issue when I enable Visual Effects with the Ati proprietary drivers that come with the installation. Everything runs very slow maximizing and minimizing take about 3-5 seconds per click and the effects get all choppy and don't look right like they did on my x1950 video card. I have tried downloading the current drivers from the ATI site but they don't seem to be initialising correctly after I perform the install.
I also know that the graphics card is not the culprit as it works perfectly fine on my Windows 7 64 bit install. There is no reason that my video card cannot handle the Visual Effects as it is a 1GB 4890 should have more than enough horsepower.
My machine is:
AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition 8 GB G. Skill 1600 DDR3 Memory 1 TB Western Digital Caviar hard drive 1 GB 4890 Graphics Card ATI.
Just installed an ATI Radeon 9500 Pro graphics card (128 Meg). Linux just seemed to work fine with it - I didn't need to install any extra drivers or anything.
Before, when I was using onboard graphics, if I tried to choose "normal" or "extra" visual effects, it told me that I didn't have sufficient hardware. Now, since installing the card, it first said "installing drivers" then a message came up saying "do you want to keep these settings .... respond in 30 secs etc...
I chose yes to keep settings but when I close "Appearance preferences" it does not retain my settings and no visual effects are activated. If I open up Visual effects again the check box next to "none" is ticked.
I looked around and there seem to be drivers available direct from ATI but are these newer than those available already on Ubuntu 9.10? It is very confusing. It seems that I have might have to uninstall existing drivers before I can install new ones and I am reluctant to do that because - at the moment, apart from visual effects, everything works And would doing this even help anyway?
In fact has anyone succeeded in getting a Radeon 9000 series card to show visual effects in Ubuntu 9.10 or should I stop wasting time and assume that it is not up to the job? I can live without visual effects (although it would be nice)
My Acer laptop Travelmate 290 was fine till yesterday (ie) before full update.No Error.I have the recent Ubuntu. Later When I boot I can't find my cursor but I could randomly see pop up notification of Application----Places--- System could be read.When I open any folder its fixed to top of the screen and no button for minimise,max and close.When I dig thro all the forums and solved by reinstalling metacity and change the setting of Appearance-Visual Effects to Normal.When I set to Normal it scans for the driver and asking me to confirm the setting.Once confirmed all the above problems solved but it don't reatain it,it is jump back to none. I need to do this on every boot.Is any way to avoid this? Is anyway to clean all the compiz files and setting from the PC?I vaguely remember it may be because of uninstall of compiz.
there I turned on my Visual Effects to Extra or Normal and when I do that both the top and bottom taskbar goes away. The only way I can get them back is to turn visual effects off. Does anyone know how I can fix this issue?
I just got a new graphics card (Well, I guess you shouldn't call it a graphics card, it's more of a workstation card) Anyway, the card is the PNY Nvidia Quadro FX 580 and I installed the proper drivers for it (Nvidia 177) But, I'm encountering a problem with enabling the visual effects.Everything was running fine and I was able to use the effects until I enabled "Xinerama" two support both my monitors. Xinerama works fine, but the Visual Effects were reverted back to "None." When I click on "Extra" it searches for graphics drivers then tells me that I should switch to the graphics driver for my on-board graphics (ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver).
The ironic thing is that in the description for the Nvidia 177 driver it says "If you wish to enable desktop effects, this driver is required." It does not say that on the board graphics driver. Any suggestions? I want to start feeling like an Ubuntu user again rather than a windows user.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 64bit on my system. Upgraded the NVidia driver to the latest one on the NVidia website: 270.41.19 to see if it corrected a problem of when VEs were enable (even Normal not Extra), I got a white or blank screen. I could tell the system was still working because I got the text info bubbles when I moved the mouse; but when I open an app or a window, the screen was blank. After updating the driver; I can see a sharper and faster rendering image but when I enable the VEs I still get the blank screen.
I'm unable to use 3d accelerated graphics in the desktop effects. I'm getting the infamous 'Desktop Effects require hardware 3d support' error. My GPU is an ATI Radeon HD 5670, and I've already tried the proprietary driver from ATI. It hung my system and gave me loads of issues, and to be frank, the ATI driver has NEVER worked for me. I'm using 32-bit Fedora 14, but if I remember correctly the 64 bit version of Fedora 14 did let me do this without an installer.
Problem with the Visual Effects under Appearance is grayed out. The options were available until after removing Compiz. Is there a way to restore back to the original setting of ubuntu 10.10 prior to installing Compiz?
A few hours ago I upgraded my system, from Karmic to Lucid and I'm glad with it.But I have a problem, (two actually, I posted the second in other thread), Gnome is not remembering my Visual Effects configuration. I mean, I select the "extra" option and when reboot, it's back to "none".It will be a pain having to edit this every time my laptop starts.
i have ubuntu 10.04 installed on my pc but when i try to open visual effects on as normal or extra my pc stoped and must restart my pc manually same problem when enter on live cd same problem with 9.10 only but when try kubuntu 9.10 work normal
I have recently updated to Ubuntu 10.04 (version of Gnome Desktop environment: 2.30.0, version of Linux kernel: 2.6.32-21-generic).My problem is that when I try to enable "Visual Effects", I receive an error message: "Desktop effects cannot be enabled". When I attempt to enable Visual Effects, my system starts searching for external device drivers but finds none. I don't believe that the source of the problem should lie in my graphics card (I have a DELL Inspiron 1545 notebook with an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD graphics with up to 1750 MB of dynamically shared memory allocated by the system). With the earlier version of Ubuntu, the 9.10, I didn't have this problem.
I am trying to find out how to get the visual effects working on my PowerBook G4. I have 10.04 installed, and it's running an ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 M10. I can't access the xorg.config because it doesn't exist.
The hardware devices drivers list three different types of drivers onboard including what appears to be the latest one with accelerated graphics capability. When I try to improve the visual effects to 'extra' it keeps telling me there's an error. I've tried improving the effects with all three but still getting the error.
