Re: Flashing black borders around windows with Nvidia-390 and Mint 19

Unfortunately the upgrade to Linux Mint 19.1 did not resolve the issue for me :( Update: Although updating from kernel 4.15.0-43 to 4.18.0-13 (through the Update Manager this time, instead of doing it manually like I tried before) for now seems to solve the issue.

So I'm still looking for a permanent fix :(

Different video card (Intel), but same problem. After trying various driver-based solutions, this bit of theme configuration seems to be what finally fixed this issue for me: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/11/fix-large-black-borders-around-header.html Cool, thanks! This solution also fixed it for me.
