Fuzzy/Pixilated Text

Postby BMO » Wed Dec 05, 2012 3:34 pm

Running a fresh install of Mint 14. I keep getting fuzzy/pixilated text like the attached image. Not just in the address bar but also links in the bookmark toolbar and on tabs. It happens in Chrome a lot. It goes away when I put it in focus by clicking on it.

Using an Nvidia GTX 550 but using Mints default drivers because I don't see the option to install the Nvidia drivers like you can with Ubuntu.

Me@Me$ find /dev -group video
Me@Me$ glxinfo | grep -i vendor
server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
OpenGL vendor string: nouveau

Anyone else experience this?
