    Unity leaves a shadow when hiding

    On Quantal amd64, I just installed a new Geforce GT 520 video card. When using nouveau, Unity leaves a shadow on the screen that affects all opened windows.
    Using the latest nvidia-current fixes that but brings along another reported bug, Unity stays hidden all the time, and also nvidia-current offers me less 16-9 resolutions settings than nouveau does.

    I booted my system with the latest USB live and have the same symptom. Does anyone kow what's happening, if it's a reported bug?

    Do you mean a shadow like this ?

    as far as filing a bug you can open your terminal and enter in
    Code:
    ubuntu-bug <name of package>
    make sure that name of package is the name of the package like
    Code:
    ubuntu-bug unity
    would launch apport and gather all the info then send you to launchpad by opening a browser. Then Launchpad asks you to enter a small input about the bug then checks to see if any other bugs are there, that are the same.

    can you please open you terminal and enter in
    Code:
    lspci -vnn | grep VGA
    and

    Code:
    lsmod
    then paste here thanks
