    Re: Unity launcher flickering

    That first one showed your GPU, and the short list showed your memory and CPU. Run these for more details on your memory and CPU.

    Code:
    sudo lshw -c memory
    sudo lshw -c processor
    (Don't know why they weren't there the first time. Maybe the beginning of the output was cut off?)
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    Yes, I suspect that those things were out the top of the terminal somehow. They are not there, anyway.

    Edit: scratch that. Somehow or other a couple of post didn't show up here until after I had posted that.

    That machine looks to me like it shouldn't be having problems with resources...

    That's what I've been saying. So it's a software problem. As I see, this flickering happens whenever underneath the launcher there is something that's moving (download manager progress, install progress, video).

    Have you installed the ATI driver?

    I can't remember where it is in Ubuntu 12.10, but there is a program already installed that offers to download and install any additional drivers for you. If you haven't already used that, then you should do so or you will have low/no 3d performance and low video playback acceleration
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    I don't have 12.10 on any of my machines yet, but I think it is in system settings> software. I read that somewhere here, I think.

    Re: Unity launcher flickering

    Grabbing "Software Sources" from the Dash and going to the tab about drivers works too, I think. (At least I think I remember reading that Software Sources had been made available at the Dash again, and that Jockey's functionality had been moved to a tab there.)
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    Yes I did. I play the games just fine. Even the Windows ones.


    Maybe it's a driver related problem?
