    This is not an OpenGL extension, its a GLX extension so none and no unless LXDE starts using a OpenGL based compositor.

      Because of a bug in the way buffer_age has been used in the past (it worked with nvidia because their driver was broken; they fixed it and then we noticed that it was broken and fixed it as well). But that patch is in the clutter-1.16 branch and already in Fedora and Arch.

        thanks for explanation... lxde doesn't use any opengl compositor, so which compositor it uses?

          AFAIK it does not use any.

            But you can always use
            Code:
            compton --backend glx
            with any non compositing window manager.

            They have some nice information too:

              I understand, thank you.

              Heads up:
              Some relevant packages have been submitted to Arch AUR
