dirty desktop icons windows etc.

Postby sammso » Mon Feb 18, 2013 11:41 am

Hi everyone,

I need help, after using while the Linux Mint I'm getting dirty windows icons, browser tabs window content buttons etc.?

I used to use ubuntu 12.10 until saturday I never had this kind of problems.

Feels like screen memory is not reused during the redraw or something. Look the attachment pictures the effect.

I'm using Lenovo T530 and currenlty I have discrete graphics set on for Nvidia.

I think this is not a normal.

sammso, I had something sorta similar happen when I installed Mint 14 KDE. I had some small white lines around text input boxes of windows, program title bars, start menu etc. I started a thread maybe in the KDE subforum about a month ago. There is a screenshot. I don't know what caused it, but it disappeared after I did the system update, all 300 or so of them.
