    is there something not wrong with ubuntu? the default theme flickers with the nvidia drivers, I tried this other one called dark room and it has NO problem?

    I have the same problem with my XFX Geforce 6800GT. Everything works smoothly, but the title bar in the all the windows blinks white and then back to the Human-themed orange sporadically when moving the window around. I can post some screenshots when I get home tonight.

    I guess from what I have been reading here is that the Nvidia Drivers don't play nice with the new xorg version in Ibex and thats why you get the title bar flicker with Nvidia cards. So what I did to work around it for now is installed emerald through the Synaptic Package Manager then installed some Emerald themes and I have been using that for my windows manager for now until Nvidia fixes their drivers. That has taken all the flicker away.

    I have been having the same issue. Not really a problem but a nuisance. I customized the Human theme from the menu by slightly changing the color of the title bar. So far no flicker.

    Maybe the system does not like humans!!............
