certain internet videos and my .MKV videos flicker constantly unless i turn off desktop effects. any way around this because i like my current effects setup. i'm on ubuntu 8.10

thanks.

are you using an ati card? with the fglrx driver? if so, there's no easy fix...we just wait until it gets fixed in an fglrx update.
