hello Matthieu !

your thoughts/suggestions did not help . . . and

I cannot install glx - not install xlib - and cannot install openGL . . 
. because
each other is depending on next and there seems to be a glx-package 
broken currently at ubuntu resp. at pear OS - this bug is already 
reported at launchpad (have not found that page again) but not yet 
solved, apparently because of an AMD-package which needs to be fixed and 
is just reported there ...

so it is too - because of nvidia-driver . . . ( I have nvidia-chipset 
with optimus / CUDA ) - and am frightened to uninstall nvidia-current . 
. . cause then it smashes my whole installation at the wall ...
it is strange that nvidia-driver (of ubuntu) leaves xorg.conf - file 
empty ??? and nvidia-driver-specific file for xorg.conf has different 
name ??? (empty file) . . .
