View Full Version : [gnome] dual head/extended display "glitched sidebar" help?

May 8th, 2009, 02:54 AM
On my Gateway Laptop, 9.04, with all current updates and drivers.

My second display, (an old 15inch dell E153FP) has display problems.

I can see just fine, and nothing is wrong with the properties, but the right side of the display (about 1/4 in) displays whatever was last displayed over it.

Similar to that old annoyng windows bug, where the non responding window would display the trails of the window?

I cant seem to get it to do anything.

Ive managed to target it down.
Its a Compiz issue, because it doesnt show up on Metacity.
