Screen Artifacts

Post by RodneyLee » Fri Jan 11, 2013 10:04 am

OK, so when I print, copy a file to XP in Vmware, or get a distance measurement in google earth a window will pop up and not go away until I log out and back, its shows up on both desktops
I am using nvidia Drivers GT 630, 6 core AMD linux mint 14

Thanks

That's a known bug of Cinnamon. You don't need to log out, restarting Cinnamon make the blank windows disappear: Press Alt+F2, type "r" and hit Enter.
