View Full Version : [kde] Rendering Issues - Tearing and Corruption

January 14th, 2009, 03:07 AM
Hi. Ive been having an issue since i installed Kubuntu onto this laptop. I am fairly new to Linux so I am not sure what to do.

When i first started Kubuntu i had a flickering issue. The screen would flicker a few times every couple minutes. or maybe when i opened a window. I googled around and found a result that said to disable RandR - Discovery. I disabled it and it fixed the flickering.

However my main issue now is sometimes when i open a window, or for example. with Firefox/Konq i open the File menu. the screen[window/box] will be torn. It refreshes in a few seconds.

Whenever i try to do some fullscreen stuff. Especially graphics games i can't do anything. (see picture).

I have an old Dell Inspiron 6000 with an Intel 915m Mobo (onboard graphics). 1gig of ram.

EDIT: I dont konw why the image is so small. So I apologize for that.
