I haven't been able to get 3D graphics to run.
The PCLinuxOS Control Center > Configure 3D Desktop effects screen says,
"Your system does not support 3D desktop effects."
Attempts to run graphics games such as Supertuxcart and TORCS results in nothing happening. There is no response when I clicked on the menu item (other than the menu closes). When I click Neverball, the task appears for a couple seconds on the taskbar and then disappears.
I've read the "Core i3 CPU - does not support 3D?" and "cannot enable desktop effects" and "can I use 3D effects at all" threads and can't see an answer.http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,78394.30.htmlhttp://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,78529.15.htmlhttp://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=kbf5rk4vi8fsvlo2j7i1namjr3&topic=75528.0
The resolution to my problem may be in there somewhere, but I can't see it.
Does anyone with an Intel I3 or I5 or I7 CPU that uses the integrated Intel GPU, and no separate video card, have 3D games running?
Did 3D work with a standard install, with no tweaking? If so, could we compare our configurations and settings?
If tweaking was necessary to get 3D games working, I'd really appreciate any specific info or instructions that will get 3D games up and running!

Thanks for the polished distro and informative forum. Even without 3D, it is my favorite.
