... GPU is not supported by this driver ...

(uname -r:
(lspci | grep VGA:
0000:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV4 [RIVA
TNT] (rev 04))
=> no way out.

GANT and blue's behaviour are identical.
=> no way out.

Screen-Resolution: I had to reduce the resolution from 1200x1024 to
320x240 to omit the double key press effect. Beside the unreadable
fonts, which were displayed as a single line of pixels of different
gray, the rest of the desktop software runs just fine with the high
resolution. This includes TV and video display.
=> no way out.

Is there a 'minimalistic theme' regarding alpha-blending demands?
Is there a way to complete omit any eye-candy? I don't know any reason,
why one shoud by a new graphic card to debounce a keyboard.

Best regards,
