I have Ubuntu 8.10, and I'm trying to get compiz to start. It complains that Xgl, texture_from_pixmap and "Composite extension" are all not present.

It works fine when I only have one monitor enabled.

Here are most of the system details below:

# When starting compiz, I get these errors:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$ compiz
Checking for Xgl: not present. 
Detected PCI ID for VGA: 
Checking for texture_from_pixmap: not present. 
Trying again with indirect rendering:

Checking for non power of two support: present. 
Checking for Composite extension: not present. 
aborting and using fallback: /usr/bin/metacity 
Xlib:  extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".

It might not work. You may need to upgrade to 9.04 and not use fglrx

My experience has been the other way, where 8.10 doing what I wanted, but 9.04 wasn't (specifically, running Boxee on a 3 year old laptop with an ATI graphics card). But then, "they" fixed it, and Boxee now magically runs on my 9.04.

I tried installing 9.04 and then fglrx, ati and radeon were all hanging when you started X. Here's my question related to that: superuser.com/questions/7206/… – Neil Jul 21 '09 at 19:34
    
Try disabling fglrx before upgrading. Clean install of 8.10 with no "proprietary" stuff. What I found was that the network and video customization I had made in 8.04, which survive the upgrade to 8.10, caused problems with the upgrade to 9.04. After a clean install of 9.04, all that tweaking, ndiswrappers, fglrx install stuff wasn't needed any more - the hardware worked. – pcapademic Jul 21 '09 at 19:47
