Hi everyone!

I have a big graphics problem when compiz is on. The screen displays lots of multi-colored pixels. Please look at the attachment. I have an Nvidia Geforce 7100 and the driver's version is 177(Nvidia accelerated graphics driver). Even when compiz is not enabled I have this graphics problem but it appears very rarely.

I also dual boot with windows and there is no problem there, so the graphics card is not defective.

Any help would be very useful.

Thank you,

Hi!

I did try that by installing envy before and uninstalling nvidia but compiz cannot run without nvidia's driver in ubuntu 8.10.

So I had to install nvidia 177.

Any other ideas?

Cheers!
