View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intellij not repainting the screen properly

September 16th, 2009, 07:18 AM

I am using IntelliJ IDEA, a Java IDE for coding using Ubuntu 9.04. It has always worked fine until a few days ago. Suddenly, the screen does not repaint properly anymore.

If I type an ENTER, nothing seems to be happening. I have use the mouse to scroll my editor window to see my changes. Needless to say, this is impossible to work with. I don't have this problem in other programs I use (Firefox, Nautilus, Terminal)

Where there any updates in the last few days that might have caused this?

I have an nvidea card. I am using version 180 of the nvidea drivers. Java version is 1.6.0_16.

I also posted this question on the IntelliJ forums (http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5245212), where I got an answer from someone that also has the same java version and nvidea version and he does not see this problem.

any idea what is going on?
