No Kwin effects with nvidia after last update [Solved]

Postby cmost » Sat Jan 05, 2013 18:05

Strange problem here. I no longer can enable Kwin effects after the latest round of updates and am wondering if anyone can lend a hand troubleshooting.

I have the nvidia driver installed correctly, however, I notice when I type eselect opengl list
Code: Select all
[email protected] ~ $ eselect opengl list
Available OpenGL implementations:
  [1]   ati
  [2]   nvidia
  [3]   xorg-x11 *


If I then try to eselect nvidia, the following error message appears. I'm sure this is what's causing the problem but don't know how to figure out how to correct the missing file:
Code: Select all
[email protected] ~ $ sudo eselect opengl set nvidia
Password:
!!! Error: The nvidia OpenGL implementation doesn't seem to provide
!!! Error: libGL.so file. This might be an effect of breakage introduced
!!! Error: by a prioprietary driver installer. Please re-merge the package
!!! Error: providing your OpenGL implementation.
!!! Error: Selected OpenGL implementation incomplete.
exiting


Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Thanks!

The file libGL.so shoul be provided by the package x11-drivers/nvidia-userspace. Did you try to reinstall it?

@ Creh

Well my friend, that seemed to solve it. I'm not sure how nvidia-userspace became messed up. I ended up doing a...
Code: Select all
[email protected] ~ $ sudo equo install nvidia-drivers nvidia-userspace nvidia-settings


...which solved the problem for the current session. But, when I rebooted this morning, desktop effects weren't working again. I logged out and went to tty1 and issed:
Code: Select all
[email protected] ~ $ sudo equo update && equo upgrade


A nvidia cfg file was flagged for update via equo conf update and so far, effects are working! Let's keep our fingers crossed for my next reboot. :D
