http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, I just installed a BFG Nvidia based geforce 7950 gt OC edition card. the system is a updated / upgraded Lucid LTS. I have tried to get the drivers working by using nvidia-current and by adding the x-swat ppa and installing the 256.x series driver. I can in some cases get the card to function in 2d. I am unable to get compiz / effects working. The card is listed as supported in both driver specs. The nvidia site also shows the card being supported. The driver shows as enabled under "hardware drivers" and also shows up when doing lsmod. Has (HowTos)
