143 <title>Glamor Acceleration</title>
144
145 <para>
146 Glamor is an acceleration library which uses cards' 3D capabilities
147 to accelerate 2D rendering. Glamor acceleration is enabled by default
148 for the new <quote>Maxwell</quote> GPU's. According to the
149 documentation, Glamor acceleration can be used with other chips as
150 well, but that does not seem functional yet.
151 </para>
152

154 If you want anyway to try to enable Glamor for GPU's other than the new
155 <quote>Maxwell</quote> ones, create the following file as
