    Re: Randomly smirched characters

    Tried your method and got this much at least.

    Code:
    ventrical@ventrical-desktop:~$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i uxa
    [    25.187] (**) intel(0): Option "AccelMethod" "uxa"
    ventrical@ventrical-desktop:~$
    I'll keep a lookout for smirched characters.

    Thanks again...

    Edit:

    So far, so good. However .. there appears to be another bug unrelated. Upon magnifiying the characters on the web pages with Ctrl+LShift+ (+or-) the links will not zone into the mouse hover meaning to say that when you hover over a magnified link the mouse icon will not morph to the handy dandy finger pointer lol ... Unlrelated bug methinks.. and this goes for SNA and the UXA modes.

    I guess *they* think we're all running Sandy Bridge systems. LoL!

    Well, here's something else you might try...

    I enabled SNA acceleration again, this morning, but disabled 3D acceleration:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
     Identifier "Intel Graphics"
     Driver "intel"
     Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
     Option "DRI" "False"
    EndSection
    Code:
    vindsl@Lothgar ~ $ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -i sna 
    [    25.457] (II) intel(0): SNA compiled: xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.21.6-0ubuntu4.3 (Timo Aaltonen <tjaalton@ubuntu.com>)
    [    25.478] (**) intel(0): Option "AccelMethod" "sna"
    [    26.131] (II) intel(0): SNA initialized with Broadwater/Crestline backend
    vindsl@Lothgar ~ $
    Haven't noticed any smirched characters yet, on this machine -- * fingers crossed *.

    No wonder I don't get smudges and smirches on my SandyBridge set. I thought SNA stood for SuperNanoAccelerator or SimpleNoobAddons err whatever ! lol

    jk..

    Thanks a million Vin.

    Re: Randomly smirched characters

    Typo methinks amigo

    "
    $ echo -e 'Section "Device"\n Identifier "Card0"\n Driver "Intel"\n Option
    "AccelMethod" "uxa"\nEndSection' | sudo tee /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf"

    Should not \nEndSection' be \n EndSection' ?



    or does it matter.

    Re: Randomly smirched characters

    Bwahahaha!

    That's one of the perils of coding on a 14" laptop. LoL!

    You wouldn't believe how many mistakes I need correct in forums, et cetera.

    Anyway, that was a copy n' paste from my bash history -- it created the file correctly on this machine, regardless of the misspelling...

    EDIT

    On second thought, I *think* that wasn't a misspelling.

    If you look at the output, I first and last lines of the script were flush with the margin -- the other lines are supposed to be indented by one space. Heh!

    Looks like smudged characters have been fixed with new kernel.

    Code:
    ventrical@ventrical-desktop:~$ uname -a
    Linux ventrical-desktop 3.13.0-1-generic #16-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jan 7 19:47:28 UTC 2014 i686 i686 i686 GNU/Linux

    Re: Randomly smirched characters

    This PC has been up and running for about 24 hours and no smudged characters with new kernel so I will mark this thread as solved.

    Regards..

    Strange.... I just upgraded the GRub bootloader ONLY from proposed-repo and now I have my 'smirched' characters back. lol
