I must use the native ATI drivers, because it's the only way to use
a second screen, to perform video projection etc. These drivers are
required to handle the VGA output cable available on the laptop. Also,
standard Xorg drivers don't implement hardware acceleration (OpenGL).

The problem that was reported seems to be related to the alpha channel
of the display, that means transparency, that is badly taken into
account with Mathematica 5.2.

Any help would be welcome.
