    Default Graphics performance monitor

    Hi all,

    Since today there seems to be some kind of "graphics performance monitor" graph in the top right corner of my screen. It shows two graphs and a blue bar, as well as a figure that probably represents the monitor's refresh rate ("60"). I can't click it and it doesn't go away after a reboot. It is driving me completely nuts, as I have no clue what I did to get it there!

    I hope someone knows what I'm talking about, because I don't know how to explain this better. Thanks for any help!

    Turns out that it was the 'Show FPS' desktop effect, which I turned on a couple of days ago. Didn't notice it at the time because apparently it was only visible on my second monitor which is switched off most of the time.

    I'll go feel stupid for the rest of the weekend now...

    You know the only people that don't do stupid things ever so often probably don't do very much of anything at all. As luck would have it, I most often resist the temptation to post the stupid things I have done online, but sometimes I do fail. If one thing is for sure though, we love to hear a happy ending from another satisfied openSUSE customer.

    Thank You,

    Well, I do not think you are stupid, but a little forgetfull .

    E.g. you forgot to tell which version of openSUSE and which desktop you use. That wouldn't have made it easier for others then yourself to solve this (which you did in a magistral way).
