I am having the same problem as described here.
I'm looking for support for DXTn textures. I ran
worldwind in terminal and got the following error message:
Aug 22, 2012 5:28:12 PM gov.nasa.worldwind.layers.TextureTile initializeTexture SEVERE: Exception attempting to read texture file javax.media.opengl.GLException: DXTn compressed textures not supported by this graphics card
I tried the suggested solution from here
sudo apt-get install driconf driconf
Under "Image Quality" change "Enable S3TC ..." to Yes. Save.
driconf solution did not fix the problem. There was no "Enable S3TC..." option in the Image Quality tab.
I think I am using Nouveau driver and I wonder if I should switch to the Nvidia driver?
