Firstly I am brand new to Linux. A friend gave us a CD with Linux Mint 6 on it so I decided to give it a try on a new computer. Not fully over from the dark side though, as I'm also running Vista 64 for games and whatnot.
Anyway the problem I am having is with Java. When I try and run anything which uses Java (such as, say, Google Earth or Runescape), the screen flashes rapidly whenever I move the mouse or click, and it either displays a solid grey image or the first frame of the Java program.
I'm using an ATI HD 4870 X2 for the graphic output, if that counts for anything. As far as I know the drivers are fully up to date.
Any help on this would be fantastic. Also if any more information is needed please ask.
