I noticed a message saying that I did not have 3d acceleration in my virtual image with VMWare player. I didn’t really need it as all I was doing was using the PeopleSoft IDE and a web browser, but I wondered if it would improve performance. I will probably never know if it made a difference other than get rid of the message.
The fix was to install driconf and enable “S3TC texture compression even if software support is not available”.
Installing driconf was as easy as:
sudo apt-get install driconf
Run driconf from the command line with the command:
Go to the “Image Quality” tab, and click “Yes” for “Enable S3TC texture compression even if software support is not available”
