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 a Ubuntu 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.
