Thread: Visual Artifacts Added To Curser, Icons and Backgrounds In KDE and Gnome

    Question Visual Artifacts Added To Curser, Icons and Backgrounds In KDE and Gnome

    With the installation of 11.4, my video driver changed over to the nouveau driver from the proprietary nVidia driver. Now I get a grid of vertical lines following my curser in both KDE and Gnome, a similar grid over icons and as background fill in KDE. In KDE the grid lines appear over icons within application windows. Is anyone else seeing these? Or, not seeing them while using the nVidia driver?

    OS: openSuse 11.4

    CPU: AMD Athlon 1.2 Ghz (Socket A)

    GPU: nVidia Geforce 7300 GT

    Are you planning to install the nvidia driver package?

    Before making changes blindly, I wanted to know if anyone else had a similar issue.

    Fair enough. The nouveau driver doesn't play nicely with some nvidia hardware. If you search, you'll find other similar accounts.

    Thank you for the reply. I will post again after installing nvidia.
