I've just upgraded to Intrepid.
While on hardy, i always had problems with linux games (openarena for example) and google earth -- they flickered a lot. Google earth was impossible to use. 3d games were a problem too.
After upgrading to intrepid, openarena was playable! google earth is still flickering, but less!
The problem is that now, my videos also flicker with totem movie player and vlc. The flicker only stops if I put them in full screen mode! Totem, for example, only stops having the problem after that time-out in which there still are visible menus in full screen mode. When menus totally disappear in full screen mode, the flickering stops completely.
I have a ATI X1600, compiz enabled...
Can anyone help me?
