    Exclamation AMD / Radeon: Some big pictures become pink

    This is very odd. I have Ubuntu 12.04 64 bits and all work fine and graphical of my applications and Unity watch fine too, but often when I open a big image (2.272px × 1.521px) is pink!

    For example, I see this picture and all is normal its color is like normal parquet: http://www.sxc.hu/photo/1163639

    but when I open it, image becomes color pink: http://www.sxc.hu/pic/l/h/hi/hisks/1163639_31172501.jpg


    If I do
    Code:
    fglrxinfo
    all is like always:
    Code:
    display: :0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series 
    OpenGL version string: 4.2.11762 Compatibility Profile Context
    Any idea why occur this?

    this is how it looks using Nvidia proprietary binary driver.
    What driver are you using?

    Re: Some big pictures become are pink !?

    This is more odd yet. I just opened http://www.sxc.hu/pic/l/h/hi/hisks/1163639_31172501.jpg with Opera and all works fine. So I thought it was a bug of firefox only. Surprise, when I save with Opera the image on my hard disk all pink again.

    In short:

    With Opera I can load the image on browser and I see it fine.
    With Firefox I see a pink image.

    When I save in my disk with both, next when I open is pink again.

    Not of help, only information

    http://www.sxc.hu/pic/l/h/hi/hisks/1163639_31172501.jpg looks fine in firefox; downloaded it as well and looks fine in eye-of-gnome

    I'm using intel graphics (integrated in i3)

    Re: AMD / Radeon: Some big pictures become pink

    Thank you Wim. I guess it. Like I see the image is:

    I changed my Proprietary ATI drivers to Open Source and happens same behaviour. In fact, this happen with other images with similar tone (for example images about timber or parquet)

    why not try creating a live usb. Try a different version of ubuntu like 12.04 versus 12.10

    boot from the usb and look at the colors.
    if normal then problem is your current config.

    Re: AMD / Radeon: Some big pictures become pink

    I tested it from 12.10 version and all works fine. Then it has to be something about my config. But I don't know where look it, because on cccamd all seems fine with colors.

    How can I move the config / module / driver of the live usb to my installed ubuntu? Do you know what folders I need? Because I don't enough know about modules in linux.
