I am trying to install ubuntu 12.04 LTS in a VirtualBox running on Windows 7 Pro. I have followed the instruction posted in Why does an Ubuntu 12.10 guest in VirtualBox run very, very slowly?
Unity 3D seems to be loading OK but all windows only update their content when I click on the window title bar. Even terminal, in terminal I can press return a few times and nothing updates until I click on the title bar, then I can see the expect responses.
My system -
VirtualBox (4.2.10 r84104)
Extension Pack 4.2.10
Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Install VirtualBox Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack.
- Create a VirtualBox instance and install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on it.
- apt-get update
- apt-get upgrade
- apt-get install dkms
- cd /media/VBOXADDITIONS_4.2.10_84104
- sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
Add the vboxvideo driver to the instance by running:
sudo bash -c 'echo vboxvideo >> /etc/modules'
- In my BIOS enabled "Intel Virtualization Technology"
- In Virtualbox set video memory 128MB and enable 3d acceleration
Boot Ubuntu guest, and check that 3D acceleration is working by running:
OpenGL vendor string: Humper OpenGL renderer string: Chromium OpenGL version string: 2.1 Chromium 1.9 Not software rendered: yes NOT blacklisted: yes GLX fbconfig: yes GLX texture from pixmap: yes GL npot or rect textures: yes GL vertex program: yes GL framebuffer object: yes GL version is 1.4+: yes Unity 3D supported: yes
I have also installed and run CompizConfig Settings Manager but I can't find any framebuffer options. I think I just need to set some option somewhere but I have no idea where to look now.
P.S. Unity 2D works OK, but I would like to get Unity 3D working then I could try 12.10.
