    lubuntu desktop graphical issues

    Hi all,

    I'm experiencing graphical problems with several things on my Lubuntu installation. For example, 'partial-transparent' windows on my desktop. Have a look at the attachment. You see a youtube video right through the terminal window. These things happen e.g. with the xfce-terminal, but also with other programs. (The default LXterminal worked even worse, so I istalled xfce-terminal.) I also get black rectangles in the left-upper-corner of my screen.

    I'm running Lubuntu 11.04, Lxde desktop, Nvidia drivers, graphics processor: GeForce G210M.

    A good thing to mention is the following:
    When I go to system tools->additional drivers, it says:
    "No proprietary drivers are used on this system.", though I installed an nvidia driver as far as I know.
    See also the attachment for further info.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi again,

    Perhaps I need to change my glasses
    It seems I can't see anything wrong. Is it possible for you to upload another screenshots when the case is even worse as you mentioned?

    Hey, that's weird
    Sorry It seems that a screenshot filters the bug.
    Sorry, I can't help. I really see windows through other windows right now!

    LOL, then I guess it's not a bug

    I believe you but I guess I need to imagine and in that case, I'll help you blindly.
    Have you changed any settings?
    Forget the Terminal. Try to open for example PCManFM and place the Window above your Browser or vice-versa ... see if the same will happen?

    That is weird, especially since LXDE doesnt offer true transparency on its own.

    Indeed.

    Re: lubuntu desktop graphical issues

    Have you added compiz to your lubuntu installation?

    That is the only way I can imagine transparency managing to show itself. I know compiz will work with LXDE, but it is not in the default Lubuntu.

    Hello ajgreeny,

    Are you positive that compiz will work with LXDE? I'm up to try that on my PC (haven't installed it in LXDE before) but just to make sure someone can fix a possible mess

    Edit: Well, after watching this, I guess I'll go for it
    I have never been so interested about these stuff. I just want my machine to work without any extra headache or steps. I'll do it this time for testing because I need to understand more about LXDE and Lubuntu.

    Downloaded an installation file on a bootable usb and just followed the instructions. I didn't do special things.

    No, I didn't.
