I have a computer with a nVidia geforce go 7400 graphics chip, and it has the same problem with the 7300 - unity won't work with it because it is blacklisted. I use
UNITY_FORCE_START=1 to get unity and compiz running, and they work fabulously, but
unfortunately, it prevents me from working in classic gnome two (what happens is both unity and gnome 2 come up and display stuff, and it is all jumbled up).
I read somewhere that it would be fixed in 11.10, but I still want to be able to use gnome 2 now. So is there any way to:
- remove the driver from the blacklist, and
- getting compiz and such work without it being forced to start.
Also, The bug is going to be fixed in oneiric right?
