View Full Version : [ubuntu] Screen Corruption

July 20th, 2008, 04:25 PM
I've noticed that when I first start some applications the screen is corrupt before it then redraws itself a second or two later. This also happens when you open the main menu.

How do I fix this as it is rather annoying.

What are your hardware specs?

What video driver are you using?

Do you have Compiz turned on?

Does it get better it Compiz is turned off?

Acer 5633 laptop
nVidia 7300 gfx card

Using nVidia driver v169.12 I think

Yes, if I turn off desktop effects it goes away. I'd prefer to have them on though.
