Howto get rid of Screensaver Flickering? solved

Postby laura.mach » Thu Jan 31, 2008 3:11 pm

Hello,
when i use screensaver i get a really ugly flickering.
Sometimes it even screws my screen and i have to restart linuxmint.
What can i do to prevent this from happening?

I have an ATI Graficcrad and used Envys latest driver to install.
The xorg file has the screenresolution and composite enabled attached.

I had a similar problem with VLC movieplayback, but there is an option to disable the flickering (X11 support or something).

Cheers,
Laura

Is it just the screensaver?
ATI is problematic
You may want to update to the latest Envy (it's not in the repos)
Download from Alberto Milones site

PS It says nvidia in the link - never mind Envy begun as nvidia only

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

Thank you Husse,
did what you suggested and works. But had to manualy install ATI 8.4... driver because of resolution.

Cheers
