So, from what I gather Cinnamon had problems with fglrx because fglrx is hard to work due to it being closed source AMD stuff. Then, one day they worked around it in a new version for Cinnamon.
My problem is, I'm on a slightly older card, and I've had to use fglrx-legacy (viewtopic.php?f=46&t=124012
and I think whatever problem was fixed with fglrx, still remains with the legacy driver. I'm still getting the screenshot bug, the buggy textures when I expo my workspaces, entire screen blipping when something new shows up on the tray bar..
Is there possibly something I can change in Cinnamon to make whatever magic they used work on the legacy driver? Hopefully I'm not SOL for using older hardware...
