Ok, these symptoms are typically caused by a faulty 3D driver... try to install a proprietary 3D driver for your graphic card.

To check if it is working properly, I recommend you to run glxgears.

Personnally, I am running Ubuntu 8.04 64bits on several computers with different types of Nvidia Geforce cards (6600Gt, 7600Go, 9800 and even 260GTX) and it usually works perfectly if I use either the nvidia drivers from Ubuntu or the proprietary nvidia drivers...

I have given up buying ATI cards for Linux some years ago, so now i cannot judge if these cards are running well.

I have a laptop with an ATI X700 mobile. No problem with caelinux and propietary driver.

A little problem with Salome-Meca 2009 and Ubuntu 32bit when 3d-effect (compiz? I'm not a *buntu expert) are running: solids disapperas in the geometry viewer window.<br /><br />Post edited by: Alessandro, at: 2009/03/31 21:52

Sorry for the newby question. But I dont know how to check hardware in Linux. Also, when I check the hardware type - where should I find the drivers?

If you type &quot;lspci&quot; in a terminal window, you will have a list of your hardware. for example, this is a part of the output of that command on my pc:

[code:1]00:18.1 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Address Map
00:18.2 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] DRAM Controller
00:18.3 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] K8 [Athlon64/Opteron] Miscellaneous Control
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV41 [Quadro FX 3450/4000 SDI] (rev a2)[/code:1]

you can see that I'm using an AMD Athlon64 processor and a Nvidia Quadro graphic card (I'm not a rich man, I bought it for 100 euros on ebay :-) )

Try to do the same. When you have determinad waht is your video card, ask to ubuntu to use non-free drivers (I'm not on ubuntu in this moment so I can't be more exaustive). Normally there is an icon for this on the right-upper sector of the gnome-desktop, near the clock. Ubuntu will warn you about the problem to use non-free drivers, just ignore it and go ahead.

In case other people run into this problem; Salomé (and e.g. paraView) is nearly unusable when I have compiz switched on - same symptoms as the original poster.

This is with an Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

Code_Aster release : STA11.4 on OpenSUSE 12.3 64 bits - EDF/Intel version

Well I am using &quot;Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller &quot;

It seems to be similar problem like the last poster.
What do you recommend I do to be able use it?
