Hugh again:

Much thanks Wacko; you provided the absolutely essential

I had deb packages left on my system from an earlier effort to do #2
above.  I didn't understand that this remaining stuff was absolutely
incompatible with the nvidia-provided script.

So I shifted to choice #1 above, purged all the nvidia* deb packages,
and ran this nvidia-provided script:


Since then I have rebooted; glxgears, glxinfo, and compiz  work as expected.

Thank you!
