Nvidia GTX 430 - 11.10 Ubuntu - Gnome3

Just a heads up. The dock won't load at all using the newest Nvidia drivers under 11.10 running gnome3. The desktop loads and the dock after several flashes (blank white boxes on desklets where the icons should be) goes into a maintenance mode menu with no dock or desktop applets showing .

Thank you

to be sure, try launching the dock without opengl (cairo-dock -c)
also, what's your version of the dock ? did you enabled a new applet recently ?

It will launch without opengl - version 3.0.0.0alpha2 BZR - no new applets.

Update- The new drivers just released on Nvidia's site - 295-20 have the same problem. The dock will not load using Opengl

I don't subscribe or post to the Nvidia forum. Not my job. I'm just letting you know whats going on in the real world with the development version of your dock.
The same system works fine using the 285.05.09 or the 290.10 drivers. I'll try Unity to see if it's gnome3 related when I get the chance.

Yes but I'm not sure that it's the job of someone else... I don't have any Nvidia card and if I report this bug, I can't give any debug information to Nvidia devs... only a short message like that: someone with a Nvidia is no longer able to use Cairo-Dock with the latest beta version of your drivers.

Thank you for having reported this bug but it seems it's not a bug in CD and it can be very useful to report this regression bug to Nvidia devs in order to also help Ndivia users of the next stable version of these drivers

My 2¢... Cairo was working well here with nvidia 290. I upgraded to 295 today. Cairo still work (openGL) but some applets don't. For example, if I try to open a shortcut, cairo crashes and restart.
