15 I have a Nvidia GT-220 card and I have mine set to OpenGL in Desktop
16 Effects. I did run into this once before tho, I went to a console,
17 reloaded the nvidia modules, restarted X and it worked. I'm not sure
18 but I think I had upgraded the nvidia drivers or something and the above
19 worked here
21 Is your card reasonably fast? If it is at least the speed of mine, it
22 should work since it works here. Not sure how much is required tho.
