Still fighting with Ubuntu and graphic stuff.
Here’s what I wanted to do:
-use the new compiz graphic enhancements
-play City of Heroes
When I install Cedega and do the test, I get all green.
But I can’t use compiz.
When I install the glx drivers, I get compiz, but not OpenGL(which is needed for COH).
After bashing around on the interwebs, I find that the proprietary drivers from ATI will allow me to do both.
Actually, I don’t think that’s said anywhere, I was just hoping.
Turns out I was right, and it does allow me to do both.
For those wanting to do it, go here: http://ubuntero.org/cochise/weblog/718.html
He lists a slightly outdated driver.
I tried the latest, it’s poopy. I tried this one, and it’s great.
One slight snag….COH seems to crash the instant I try to do anything.
I still don’t think I should just through so many hoops just to get this stuff to work.
But to be honest, what I’m trying to do is use a bunch of third party stuff and get them all to agree on things.
That’s just never easy.
