Hi!

I have installed the 180.35 in ubuntu 8.10, running on a Acer Aspire with Nvidia geforce go 7300.

I did this because the 177 driver caused corrupted titlebars with compiz.

But now, I see banding on gradient images. Like I was working in 16-bit color depth. But xorg clearly says 24.

I think this is a related topic:

But no help there. Does somebody has a clue what to do?

Thanks!

I just noticed that the color banding clearly shows up, when I turn compiz on!

No banding with compiz off. But I really like compiz, it's a pain to my soul not to be able to get my stuff working just the way I like it

Anybody got an idea?

Any help would hugely be appreciated!

Thanks

For reference:
It has been fixed, for some reason. I don't know what I did, but I do remember an update for xorg-something a couple of days ago. Maybe this was it!

Happy days
