  If you have fancy 3D graphics effects turned on, try turning them off.

  (System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Visual Effects -> None ("Provides a simple desktop appearance ...")

  unfortunately rgl and compiz/etc. both try to use the same OpenGL interface, so you can't use both at the same time.


This is what makes subscribing a help mailing list a good thing: great! Ben, you solved my problem!

Thanks very much!
