"Desktop effects could not be enabled" on Ubuntu 10.10 x64

Postby prismra » 11. Oct 2010, 19:02

Brand-new install. Windows 7 x64 host. 64-bit version of Ubuntu 10.10. Guest additions installed. Cannot enable compositing. Please advise.

From the host terminal/command window type VBoxManage showvminfo <VM Name> --details and post here. Replace <VM Name> with the actual name of the VM. Use "" if the name has a space in it.

Did you remember to turn on the 3D acceleration in the display section of the guest settings?
Also what version of VirtualBox are you using? 3.2.10 was just released today with Ubuntu 10.10 support.

I don't see an issue. Did you reboot the guest after installing the additions?
I just tested (I don't normally use 3D) and it is working for me.

Yes. I installed the guest additions and rebooted. I checked the hardware drivers control panel and the virtualbox driver is listed and enabled. Could it be a host driver issue perhaps?

It might. What is the make and model of the hosts video adapter?

EDIT: Also look at /var/log/vboxadd-install.log to see if it shows errors.

Same here (Windows 7x64). Except using ubuntu 10.10 32 bit.

Desktop effects were working fine with ubuntu 10.04 32 bit with VB 3.2.8. Tried 10.10 when it was in RC still, and tried with the 3.2.9 GA (test version I guess ) that was available from some link on this site (in support ticket thread I believe). Could get the GA to install and work OK, but would not enable special effects at all.

Now tried clean install of VB 3.2.10 and ubuntu 32 bit 10.10, with 3.2.10 GA. Same thing, installs and works but desktop effects won't enable. Graphics card on my Windows 7 x64 host is geforce GTX 480.

I'm also having this issue with virtualbox 3.2.10 PUEL with a Ubuntu 10.10 guest.

If I use the 3.2.10 GA, glxinfo reports that it is using mesa for rendering, desktop effects are disabled, and OpenGL programs based on GLUT run, but run without hardware acceleration.

If I use the Ubuntu virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 package from Ubuntu (which I know isn't recommended for the PUEL version) glxinfo reports that it is using Chromium for rendering, and desktop effects are enabled. However, in this situation, OpenGL apps which use GLUT (that I've tried) segfault with a message about XGetVisualInfo returned 0 visuals.

EDIT: I don't see any errors when I run the 3.2.10 GA install script, and no apparent errors in /tmp/vboxadd-install.log.

The display adapter is listed as Intel Q45/Q43 Express Chipset. It is using the built-in Windows 7 driver.

I re-ran the add-ons installer. There are indeed some errors (I think).

Ok I see some issues on mine now. I have everything working including the rotating cube, but it is not stable.
I searched using ubuntu 10.10 compositing problems and came back with a ton of issues (on metal) Some fixed and some still open. At this point I can't tell if this is an issue for VirtualBox yet.

Please post the guests Log file (as an attachment) along with your xorg.0.log and glxinfo (again all as attachment)

The guest log is in your host OS .Virtualbox log folder. The xorg log file is in the guest OS /var/log folder and you just run glxinfo from the terminal (you will need to download it via apt-get or Software Center).
