Panel Icons showing half or not at all

Post by sig » Sun Jan 07, 2018 4:32 pm

so I have an issue with panel icons, after a while some of the icons will only show half or disapear completely. But... if I run the mouse over the area where they should be they show up. Anyone else have this problem or know a fix to it?

I'm running the latest 18.3 Cinnamon Desktop on a 2006 iMac.

~ $ inxi -G
Graphics: Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] RV530/M56-P [Mobility Radeon X1600]
Display Server: X.Org 1.18.4 drivers: ati,radeon (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
Resolution: 1680x1050@59.88hz
GLX Renderer: ATI RV530 GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 17.2.4

Here are some pictures from what I see on my Desktop:
Following pictures show half icons and opened apps missing top left corners in the panel.

If I reboot or restart X it fixes them and eventually it happens again.

I have noticed something similar. Sometimes Cinnamon produces empty spaces between the app icons.

However, if I hover over the empty space, not reappears. Moreover, nothing is missing in my case. It just adds an empty space.

I am also running LM 18.3 Cinnamon.

Oh and this happens when using any theme. I'm using the current "Linux Mint" Theme.
