    Annoying video corruption [SOLVED]

    Hey all,

    For some reason, KDE shows a lot of garbage on the screen as I hover over icons or open a new window. I've attached a screen capture demonstrating some of the corruption. This happens with desktop effects on or off.

    Using Kubuntu 8.10 with the proprietary NVidia driver.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

    I had the same issue with KDE4.2 and Ubuntu 8.10.
    Also have a Nvidia card (Quadro NVS 140M) on my T61 with proprietary drivers (177.82).

    When opening menus and windows I get for less then a second a similarly scrambled image.

    Tested in XFCE. I don't get as much corruption, but I do see garbled windows when they first open.

    XFCE is quite usable, but the KDE menu is sometimes so funky that it's mostly unusable.

    Looks like I should have googled more aggressively. It's a known bug.
