Hi i am a linux newbie and I have installed openSUSE 11.2 about a week ago. The problem is that whenever I enable Desktop Effects using KWin my mouse starts displaying trails when I move it after I start an application and the application Icon starts bouncing. Also when I try to resize a window the window resizes very slowly. Another problem is that some sort of artifacts are displayed on the screen they are not exactly artifacts, they are like spaces/ lines in the middle of a window. If i use the arrow keys to move my cursor while typing it leaves a trail behind infact its happening right now in this Text box. The thing is this problem is only on Opensuse, I have used Kubuntu and Fedora 12 KDE on the same machine and I didnt have this problem on those Operating systems with desktop effects and all those animations enabled.
I have tried changing the Refresh rate and the resolution in sax2, that didnt work. I have tried to look the problem up on the internet but cant find the solution. I installed all the updates, updated Mesa but that didnt work either.

My laptop is an IBM thinkpad T40 with 1.5Ghz Pentium M processor, ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 (32mb) and 1gb of ram.
Any help would be appreciated.
