Mate 18- Open application icons in panel flickering uncontrollably

Post by everfree » Fri Aug 19, 2016 7:00 am

Greetings, On a fresh install on new pc of 18 Mate , when I have at least 6 programs running the panel icons that show them active start flickering uncontrollably and are unresponsive. I have to close some programs to stop it. I had been using 13 Maya mate previously and it had the same problem, but didn't happen with only 6 programs running. I thought this was fixed long ago.

I'd appreciate any ideas what to do , thank you !

This behavior happens with the panel on the left side, this is how I have set it for years with Maya. Curiously, I tried moving the panel to the bottom, and so far with over 6 programs running the icons have not flickered ! Hmm, I may keep it there for awhile and see what happens, hopefully nothing .

Known issue, hopefully will be fixed with future migration of mate-panel to GTK+3.

Interestingly, upgraded to 18.2 [64] and the flickering is happening at the bottom of the screen.

GPU = GTX1070
ASROCK MB with the bells and whistles.

Thanks!
