    Screen goes blurry when LibreOffice opened

    I posted this in the Multimedia & Video forum about 2 weeks ago and never got any responses. So here it is again to see if it works here:

    Hello, I am having a problem, seemingly with my NVIDIA onboard video. When I open any LibreOffice application, my whole screen goes blurry; see the attached screenshot. I am using 11.10 Oneiric 64-bit with NVIDIA GeForce 7025.

    Thanks.

    I can't say I know for sure, but seeing that your previous post got ignored I'll offer you something.

    It kinda seems like a driver issue. Have you tried running "additional drivers"?

    I googled drivers for your particular graphics card and came up with a bug that may or may not apply to you:

    Thanks for answering! I thought I might never get any help on this! This bug doesn't look like it would pertain to my problem (though I understand that sometimes fixing one bug can inadvertently fix others). Maybe I should submit it as a bug. I was hoping to get help on here first, but there may not be anything that anyone on here can do.

    It's weird that it only happens with LibreOffice. You haven't had any luck updating or finding new drivers?

    I found a LibreOffice forum, maybe if the problem is truly confined to only that application you can get some answers over there. If it were me I would open up every installed application to see if anything else is affected first.

    Thanks, that gives me something to try. I'll post again once I've tried all that.

    Back when I first bought this motherboard, I had to work on it for weeks off and on before I finally found a driver and OS version that would work. I tried every one of the listed drivers in Additional Drivers one at a time, and each one had a different problem. I had various other problems in the process as well. You can read about it in my other post if you really want to know. I ended up having to install 64-bit Oneiric and then had go to the NVIDIA website and downloading the latest driver for it. No drivers for 32-bit and no drivers for 64-bit worked normally at all except for this one (as I'm typing, I realize I'm not totally sure I tried the 32-bit driver from the NVIDIA site, but I'd rather not go through the process of re-installing Ubuntu yet again to try that one).
