    Default 13.1 and Eclipse Kepler visual glitches/artefacts

    Hi,
    I upgraded from 12.3 to 13.1 recently, but now I have interesting problem with Eclipse / Eclipse-based apps (i.e. DBeaver) - white blocks appear on random places.
    They appear on text selection (from bottom to top, no problem when selecting from top to bottom though...), or where the cursor line is - around the cursor position,
    as you can see from the following screenshots:

    Tried to play with the compositing settings (XRender, OpenGL), tried with different Java versions (1.6.0_45, 1.7.0_20, 1.7.0_40, , 1.7.0_45), tried Juno, Kepler, Kepler SR1, DBeaver 2.3.0 but to no avail.
    So far the problem exists only in Eclipse-based apps.
    I tried some native KDE apps, LibreOffice and some trough Wine (Notepad++) all seems to work fine.

    openSUSE 13.1 x64 KDE, integrated Intel video, Core i5

    Any ideas where this problem comes from ?

    Regards

    Maybe a graphics driver problem? The intel driver shipped with 13.1 was buggy.
    An update has been released yesterday, have you installed that already? Of course you have to reboot to use the new driver.
    Code:
    rpm -qi xf86-video-intel
    Or maybe try to change the Gtk2 theme in "Configure Desktop"->"Application Appearance"->GTK to something else.

    Summary : Intel video driver for the Xorg X server
    Description :
    intel is an Xorg driver for Intel integrated video cards.


    The driver supports depths 8, 15, 16 and 24. All visual types are
    supported in depth 8. For the i810/i815 other depths support the
    TrueColor and DirectColor visuals. For the i830M and later, only the
    TrueColor visual is supported for depths greater than 8. The driver
    supports hardware accelerated 3D via the Direct Rendering Infrastructure
    (DRI), but only in depth 16 for the i810/i815 and depths 16 and 24 for
    the 830M and later.
    Distribution: openSUSE 13.1



    Restarted (even changed the GTK2 to Raleigh) and ... seems to be ok with the selection now, but the cursor doesn't blink, also I cannot see it move horizontally, only vertically.
    It actually changes its position, but visually stays at the same place.
    When I click Enter or move vertically then I can see where the cursor actually is.

    OK, that's the new version.

    Somebody mentioned a similar cursor problem with Kepler in another thread (about Juno crashing...).
    For him, maximizing the window fixed it IIRC.

    Seems like the problem is the intel video driver
