Same issue here.
Linux Mint 16 64bit Cinnamon freshly installed yesterday + packages updated via "Update Manager".
I was running Mint 14 before and don't remember seeing the issue.
Config : Dell laptop 6400 with 2 external screens (VGA + DVI), the issue is happening in Firefox on both external screens (the laptop screen is closed).
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P9700 @ 2.80GHz
- Code: Select all
Graphics: Card: Intel Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller bus-ID: 00:02.0
X.Org: 1.14.3 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Mobile Intel GM45 Express Chipset GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 9.2.1 Direct Rendering: Yes
I have not installed any specific graphic driver, it's all from the default install.
The issue doesn't go away when scrolling the screen but it goes away if I select the text with the mouse (or if I select anywhere on the line).
Also typing/deleting text in this forum reply box make some "blurbs" happen in the lines/characters already typed. I can see them from the corner of my eye as I type but they get instantly corrected.
To reproduce : type a line of garbage text, you might see pixels being changed and fixed left from where you type.
Deleting the whole line with backspace also makes these small pixel issues happen and disappear.
I do not see a similar issue when using the Text Edtor.
Hope that helps...
Edit: just saw the same issue in a Terminal window (though much less frequently).
