Dustpuppy Posted November 3, 2006 Report Share Posted November 3, 2006 (edited) What else to do with a fully functional system, but break it... I know I was daft to try 3d effect with a geforce 4 mmx card. But I didn't think it would trash my system! I went to the "3d" config. in mcc, was told my system could cope, and that compiz was being installed. Which it did. Then after restart I found that not only did I not have any 3d effects, but I had no window borders (in either kde or gnome), no shutdown options on logout, an erratically functioning keyboard, and all my fonts were completely different. So I went back to the mcc to disable 3d effects, only to find that now I was being told that my system couldn't do them, and the options were faded out. I tried restarting kdm, but nothing happened. I figured that the problem was compiz being my dm, so I did "urmpe compiz". I also uninstalled and re-installed kdm. This got me back some window borders (but not if I choose the theme "mandriva"), but no logout options and my fonts were still weird. I've managed to sort out most of the fonts, except for firefox: the fonts up the top (file..edit..view etc) and bottom (Done... Adblock etc) and the address bar font are all ENORMOUS and I can't find any settings in KDE or Firefox itself that will change them. This happens using gdm as well, the only change there is that I get logout options. I know it's my own fault, but (please) Edited November 12, 2006 by Dustpuppy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
