I've upgraded to 11.10 from 11.04 on a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 and can't get Compiz to work anymore. Metacity runs in it's place and "compiz --replace" gives the following errors.

lspci -v gives

I have uninstalled all non-Intel drivers and software packages(ATI, NVidia). Mesa is installed. Using the "compiz-check" script, I get:
Gathering information about your system... Distribution: Ubuntu 11.10 Desktop environment: GNOME Graphics chip: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07) Driver in use: Unknown Rendering method: None Checking if it's possible to run Compiz on your system... [SKIP] Checking for hardware/setup problems... [SKIP] At least one check had to be skipped: Error: No rendering method in use (AIGLX, Xgl or Nvidia)
I have purged and re-installed compiz with no luck. I have deleted all of the ~/.config/compiz* folders with no result. Nothing OpenGL works (e.g glxgears, games, etc). Tried Compiz Fusion but it doesn't switch over to compiz.
Thanks in advance for the help.
