Can you please post Latest.log, after restarting Oolite with Shift held down?

Hmm. Looks like some drawing commands are being ignored, or it’s somehow using a single-buffered context. I don’t really know what to do about either, except wait for better drivers to fall out of the sky. :-/

It isn't that it can't draw the entire sight, it does so briefly, occasionally.

The same goes for the text. Once in a long while it will write it correctly but only very briefly.

Probably will solve my problem if I just get a card with an NVIDIA chipset but I can't do that right this minute.

I really appreciate everyones assistance. If anyone has anything further that might help I'd love to hear it.

New to Oolite with the exact same problem

Post by acmesediver » Fri Jun 11, 2010 3:50 pm

Just discovered Oolite when I loaded Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and checked out the games. I was Majorly jazzed to see an elite type game, having happily played it in my youth.

However, I having the exact same communication and scripting problem on my laptop. Any insight would be appreciated.

Probably the best option is to try the proprietary drivers, in the non-free (as in free speech, they're still free as in free beer) section of the ubuntu repositories.

On a few occasions that solved all rendering problems

Mesa unfortunately hasn't yet reached a stage where everything works flawlessly... :(

success and failure- successfully loaded 1.73.4 to my laptop running Lucid. Now, sadly the screen is constantly flashing and my keyboard inputs are not recognized. Again, any help appreciated!!

Can you show us what's inside Latest.log? Hopefully there's a clue to what's happening inside that file...

gladly, but how?

Post by acmesediver » Sat Jun 12, 2010 9:04 pm

Of course, before I ask that I did some searching to see if I can figure out how to do that, but to no avail.

Merci!

No, I mean the proprietary drivers supplied by the card manufacturer: ATI, Nvidia etc...

There's an howto here:

http://www.ghacks.net/2009/04/15/using- ... in-ubuntu/

It's about Intrepid, I think, but the method has remained the same for all ubuntus since: Jaunty, Karmic, Lucid...

Weird Update

Post by acmesediver » Tue Jun 15, 2010 2:40 am

So, I go to look at the game again and it is no longer installed after I shut down. Reloaded, same flashy graphic error, shut down, and no longer installed again. Brraaagghhhrrraahhh! My Commodore 64 was less trouble... :)
