Apr 5, 2011

I installed compiz on squeeze. I followed the steps on [url] , everything seems fine except my gnome-terminal shows me a white-in-white screen, seems like both the background and foreground are white, I tried to change the gnome-terminal profile, it doesn't work, after I disable compiz, gnome-terminal back to normal. I tried to install xterm, it can work, but it not easy to use for me, I still want to use gnome-terminal,

My laptop is lenovo Thinkpad T400. 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz With NVidia - White Bars And Screwed Rendering

Feb 12, 2010

I installed compiz with nvidia trouble is when I run compiz white bars or lines (bars) appear in open windows (icewease, gedit, etc.). They disappear after a few moment and reappear when scrolling a page. BTW everything works fine with metacity running as window manager.

Here is my xorg.conf:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (randy@juliet2) Fri Sep 5 15:03:39 PDT 2008
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (randy@juliet2) Tue Jun 24 10:44:02 PDT 2008
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection .....

I have the nvidia driver 173.14.09 installed. Running Debian Lenny stable x64 and turion x2 with a geforce 8200M G graphics card with dual screens. I first installed the debian repos compiz, then upgraded to the tuxfamily repo version. I installed the nvidia driver 190 from nvidia's website and that fixed it!

Fedora :: Compiz Fusion - Screen Just Turned White

Oct 30, 2009

I followed leigh123linux' guide about the compiz fusion installation and set-up. Unfortunately, I failed to do a compiz-check before running the whole thing. I enabled compiz and did a reboot. The next time I logged in, my screen just turned white. I can still see my mouse moving though, but I couldn't disable the compiz.

Ubuntu :: Compiz-Fusion - Turns To A Blank Screen Of White With A Mouse On It

Jan 6, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on my computer dual booting with 9.10 32bit. Was hoping to move to 64 bit to get full use out of my RAM and CPU. The issue is that when I tried to run Compiz-Fusion that I got from the Ubuntu software repos that came with 9.10 nothing would change. I tried to make a 4 desktop layout with a cube like I have on the 32 bit OS and nothing happens. So I right click on the Compiz icon and select the "reload windows manager" tap in the drop down menu and every time it turns to a blank screen of white with a mouse on it. I can move the mouse and I can even use some of the new settings I changed but I cant see anything else besides a mouse and the white screen. I feel as thou I am using a version of Compiz that is not compatible with 9.10 64 bit.

Fedora :: GNOME 3 Load To White Screen

May 31, 2011

On attempting to load GNOME 3 with Gnome shell, the screen fades to white, stalls for a minute, then gives an error and asks to log out. "Classic Gnome with Compiz" has numerous graphical glitches such as the background not refreshing (think Windows 95), among other things. How can I get GNOME Shell working again?

Gnome shell and classic gnome load fine under other users.

Ubuntu :: Blank White Panel In Gnome

Everytime I boot into eeebuntu on my 900hd the panel on the top is completely blank (along with the main menu and everything on it), and only will revert back to normal when I change something in the properties (e.g. the background). Does anyone know what could be causing this problem or how I could go about fixing it?

Fedora :: Horizontal White Lines Appearing In Gnome 3?

May 29, 2011

I have weird graphical glitches in Gnome 3. They appeared in RC3 and now appear in the final release, but they didn't appear in beta. Here's what they look like, there are horizontal white lines appearing in different places where they shouldn't appear:


it can be a result of this bug:[URL] but my glitches look different than the ones in there.

I have a Mobility Radeon HD 5650 video card. Should I just update my system regularly and hope it gets fixed, or is there some way to fix it by tweaking some settings or stuff? Maybe by installing the official ATI drivers? I'm not sure, but I've read somewhere that the official drivers don't work well with Gnome 3, is that true?

Ubuntu :: Transparent Gnome Tray Icons Have White Background?

Mar 12, 2010

This is how my Firestarter and Pidgin icons appear in the tray against a panel using an image background, even though the icons are transparent. What can be done to fix this? According to this five year old thread, GTK libraries didn't support transparency in the tray area back then, but surely this must've been fixed by now? There are even some links to bugfixes in that very thread, but I'm hesitant to apply something that old. What to do?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Upgrade Or Reinst Causes White Terminal Screen And Endless Restart Of X Server

Apr 29, 2011

I'm having lots of trouble with 11.04. Note: everything used to work beautifully on 10.10 for me. I first upgraded and ran into all the problem below, then reinstalled clean and still have the same issues.

1. Terminal screen is unreadable after grub menu. The screen is all white and text is garbage looking. My graphics card is an nvidia fx5200.If I edit the boot option for linux and remove the line 'set gfxpayload = $linux_gfx_mode', the terminal looks normal again.

2. Unity or Compiz or both are broken for me.

Regardless of whether I fix the issue in 1 or leave it there, after booting into X11 my desktop looks like it is blinking. I think my unity keeps restarting. If I disable compiz and use meta city the screen is stable but I have no menus making it useless.

NOTE: I didn't explicitly install any nvidia drivers, not sure if it did it install it automatically as part of the isntallation.

I don't care for Unity (even though it looks kinda nice). I just want my X11 working again with HW acceleration. I am happy to go back to a working gnome except I don't know how. After the upgrade, I was able to switch my driver from nvidia to vesa in xorg.conf and get something usable (but horribly slow), I think it was classic and not unity. However a fresh isntall has a stub for xorg.conf with nothing much in it. If all else fails, I will reinstall 10.10 and wait for a more stable 11 release.

Update: I used to tick automatic login which took it straight to unity which meant I ran into 2. and made this version unusable.If I untick this option on installation I can at least switch to classic and use my desktop.

Ubuntu :: Gnome 3 Broke 11.04 - Stuck At Blue-white Login Screen

May 2, 2011

I did exactly this tutorial says [URL] But now my Ubuntu 11.04 is stuck at blue-white login screen. Only User Defined Session and Recovery Console options are available but they are not working as well. But when I did the Gnome 3 upgrading, it asked for me to remove unused packages and I said yes. About 20 packages removed. Do I need to reinstall my Ubuntu? Or can I get my old Gnome 2? (Not Unity, I didn't like it.)

Ubuntu :: White Vertical Lines On Gnome Panel Using Default Theme

May 4, 2011

I'm using the default Ambiance theme with 11.04, but my bottom gnome panel has strange white vertical lines as well as a very light background on active windows. It's almost as if it's using the Clearlooks theme for open applications and Ambiance for everything else. Also when I right click some of the systray items I get weird backgrounds in the tooltip. So far I've tried deleting all my .gnome config folders in my home directory, logging in/out etc. and nothing seems to work. Attached screenshots of the problems.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Blank White Box Where Webcam Video Should Be

May 6, 2010

I have a Sager NP5797 running Lucid (32-bit) with a BisonCam NB Pro (V4L2) webcam on /dev/video0 In Flash (like [URL]), everything works great. My video appears to both myself and others, and I see incoming video. (I am using the 10.1 RC, downloaded from Adobe's site) But in applications like Cheese, Skype, etc., I get a big blank white box where video should be: Cheese (as well as every other app I try) sees the camera on /dev/video0:

In Skype, the person I am calling sees my video perfectly fine. So my camera is "working" and sending video. But I cannot see my video, nor can I see their incoming video. It's all a big white box just like the one in Cheese in the shot above. Taking the other person out of the equation, when I go to use the "test" in Skype, it's just a blank white box too. The video will not draw for me.

Again, I do see video in Flash-based web apps that use the webcam. And other people are seeing my video. But webcam video (both mine and the incoming stream) won't "draw" for me. What makes V4L video not draw? I am using the binary NVIDIA driver for the GTX 280M chip in the laptop, and I am using Compiz. Though I tried turning Compiz off and Cheese still just showed the white box.
