Here we go again! Anyhow, I had been using 11.0 (64-bit) with the
proprietary Nvidia driver and a Quadro 4500 display adapter. Now that
I'm using 11.1, that driver can be installed, but windows do not have
resizing buttons in the upper right corner, and other anomalies. When
the "nv" driver is restored, these problems go away. Is there some way
I could fix this so that the proprietary driver would work properly?
Sounds like you have Compiz running because the no-menu thingy is a
problem with Compiz, so until you get the menu back I'd disable Compiz
stuff or un-install it, then get the Nvidia driver and menu working
properly before trying again to enable Compiz.
Somehow sax annulled my hand-editing of xorg.conf, restoring the
NVidia driver, but now it seems to be working properly. I still might
be interested in trying Compiz, but according to the same xorg.conf
file, Composite is disabled, and it must be enabled to start Compiz.
How should I do that? (I'm afraid that if I do it by editing
xorg.conf, sax might take that out, too.)
You need the nvidia driver for that. When that does not work for you,
you need to fix that problem or forget about compiz.
