[Bug 713504] [NEW] compiz fails to run with "GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing"


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I'm running natty as a VM in VirtualBox 4.0.2 and since the VM upgraded
to the kernel, compiz no longer runs, complaining that
it cannot find the GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap.

I have modified the vboxguest driver so that it compiles against the headers. dkms shows that the driver is installed, and
"/etc/init.d/vboxadd status" says that the guest drivers are running.
"glxinfo|grep texture_from_pixmap" returns:

    GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, GLX_OML_swap_method, 
    GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap, 

and glxgears runs happily. sudo modprobe vboxvideo works as well.

So it appears that all is well with the vboxvideo driver, but compiz
cannot detect the GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap.
