After Mint-Update - EOG fullscreen flicker

Postby rava » Fri Mar 14, 2008 3:08 am

Hi,

after I made a complete update of my LinuxMint 4.0 on my Samsung Q40 notebook, every time I want to use the full screen mode of EOG it flickers very badly.
I did not write down which driver the non-updated Mint was using [it was named 'experimental', could be the same one now in use]
$ lspci|grep -i graph
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

Screeen & Graphics preference says
Graphics Card (Intel 945)
Driver intel - Experimental modesetting driver for I...

I hope it is possible to revert to the non-updated Mint behavior without the flicker.
yours Rava

Is it just EOG that flickers?
Post your xorg.conf

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

As far as I can say: only EOG
I used fullscreen with firefox and gimp, both OK.
Just checked: mplayer and totem in full screen mode: OK -- I don't use any video player since the sound is not jet working (that's in another thread. Had not yet have the time to figure out all the versions from the wiki or forum page I found)

Here comes the xorg.conf:

Code: Select all

# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.

Update

I realized that the flicker stops the moment the upper "dock" thing is visible (with the turn and next buttons)
Maybe that helps.
