    Default OpenOffice 3 and the panel in KDE 4.1.3


    Hi people.

    Well here is the thing. I'm on my new shinny 11.1 install but when i
    start working on a document on Writer in OpenOffice, i got some areas of
    the panel going transparent totally, the Launcher menu goes black, the
    clock disappears and a part of the systray.

    If i put the mouse over the elements, they appear again, but this keeps
    on and on...

    So, i was checking the forums and google and found that some people
    have fix this setting in /usr/lib/qt3/bin/qtconfig, the cursor blinking
    time to "no blinking" but this doesn't work for me, the problem its
    still appearing.

    I have the default installation settings for the effects and that
    stuff, and this conf in my device section for my nvidia card:

    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    BoardName "GeForce 7000M / nForce 610M"
    Driver "nvidia"
    Identifier "Device[0]"
    VendorName "NVIDIA"

    Option "NoLogo" "true"
    Option "DynamicTwinView" "True"
    Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
    Option "TwinView" "True"
    Option "RenderAccel" "True"

    Option "MetaModes" "CRT: 1024x768 @1280x800 +0+0, DFP: 1280x800
    +0+0"
    EndSection

    I had this config because i use a lot the second display of my laptop
    to do presentations, but thats all. The rest its the default that SaX2
    did.

    So i don't have any clue to follow, and i need this working right
    because i some times i show this linux distro as a example for everyone
    to use, and i will look bad if that render problem appears in the middle
    of the presentation.

    So, little help please ?

    Thanks in advance! and happy holidays!

    I have found the same probem both on openSUSE 11.1 and Kubuntu 8.10

    The problem is, as far I figured out, is between kde4 and JAVA, because
    the same thing happens if I run Eclipse IDE or any other JAVA based
    program.

    temporary bug fix: if you need to use taskbar or clock etc just focus
    any non JAVA program and everything would be OK. As far there are no bug
    fix, this is the best I could figure out

    Uhm... Well, testing around i found that if you use the Java
    Implementation of the Free Software Foundation (in the repos, and used
    by default) works really better (don't know why), but if you use the
    Java Sun implementation, starts the problem.

    Let me know if this is the same for you or if you find some
    workaround.

    See ya.

    Upgrading to the latest driver will solve this problem. 'NVIDIA -
    openSUSE' (http://en.opensuse.org/NVIDIA).
    Good luck.

    Try updating to the latest beta. It isn't available in rpm's, so you
    need to install it manually. Here is the FTP link:
    ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/.
