Thread: Dumb graphics problem with KDE 4

  1. #1

    Default Dumb graphics problem with KDE 4

    I have a strange problem with KDE 4. I'm not sure if it's a glitch or a settings problem. Basicly, my icons on the desktop always have a dark square around them, as if my mouse was hovering over them, but the squares never go away.

    Also on the bottom right, on the task bar, all the smaller icons have flat black square around them. Those square look like glitches but, the deskop icons don't.

    Anyway know what the problem could be?

    If you really want to use KDE 4, the way to go is to install KDE 4.1 beta 2.

    Add this repo, and then pull update all in this repo.

    Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.0

    It looks like they might already have KDE 4.1 beta 3 packages in it. I didn't realize it was already tagged.

    Nope, that didn't do anything for my problem. I really don't notice any difference.

    Nope, that didn't appear to do anything. Neither of the ideas did anything to fix the problem. Is it my video card perhaps? Nvida 6200

    Is there a way I can roll back to KDE 3.5 until they work out the bugs in KDE 4?
