Ok, the output of glxinfo is good. You get a white screen when enabling the desktop effects? What if you remove compiz-gnome and use Compiz-Fusion instead? I have that working on my Xubuntu VMs.
You did disable all checks as noted here right? Of course, else you wouldn't post here with having an issue. I feel your frustration. I can't help much from here on, as I don't use the Gnome Desktop Manager. I prefer Xfce.

I do use Gnome/compiz on my Ubuntu 9.04 and have it running just fine. Only hiccup was when I went to seamless mode and forgot to turn 3D off and the S*!t hit the fan.

DO this:

Open a terminal window in Ubuntu.
Cick on install guest additions at the top left of the VBox window under device
this should put the CD on the desktop. Double click to open it.
Type sudo -i and press enter in the terminal, give it your password and press enter.
Now do a click and drag + drop of the VBoxLinuxAdditions-x86.run to put the file location in the terminal window.
Click on the terminal window to get focus and hit enter. WATCH FOR ERRORS Write down any errors you see and tell me what happens. When it tell you that you must log out don't tell Ubuntu to restart.

No, I get "couldn't enable desktop effects".
I disabled all checks yes.
I am sorry I made that condescending remark to you in one of my previous posts. I appreciate you taking the time to help me despite my attitude.

I am starting to get to the point where it looks like a video card or driver problem. http://support.intel.com/support/graphi ... 010479.htm see if updating the driver helps. Also you can do some research here http://www.opengl.org/ to see about compatibility issues and what can be done about it.

Checking up on the chipset and it's video chip it provides, I come to this wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA which has a table with some rendering support. One of the interesting parts is hardware acceleration. Your Q35 uses the GMA 3100 chip, which according to the table does not provide hardware acceleration for 3D. This can be the problem. Intel is known to have a lot of OpenGL issues on Windows, while the chip does support it as shown by the Linux drivers.

Oh well. When I went home yesterday, I tried it out on my mac and it worked fine. I am just going to consider this work machine a lost cause. Thanks the info. Sorry for the bad attitude I had.

Shit happens. I had that a few times too. Don't worry about it. We're all humans and we all feel irritated once in a while and we sometimes vent that at the wrong place.

musicalmike235, according to your glxinfo output. There's indeed another intel windows driver issue, exactly the same as with 945gm cards: opengl verison 1.4 and no support for non power of 2 textures which is required by compiz code.
