Taskbar doesn't refresh properly

Hi. Since the install of suse 11.1 and kde 4.1.3 I am experiencing this unproper refresh of the bottom taksbar in the right corner where there are icons like: volume manager, applet updater, pulseaudio applet,…It is not a problem of malfuncionting of the application, just the taskbar doesn’t alway refreh correctly. For instance, If I start opera browser, the icon of opera appears in the right corner of taskbar, but some of the other icons, which were present before I run opera, get some “black shadows” stains (I don’t know how exactly do describe it) around them. Everything works well despite this, it’s just that it doesn’t look pretty. I have installed the latest drivers from nvidia repository. Did anyone have similar problems. Thanks for help.

Thats a well known bug: http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=158094

freedguy thanks, but if I saw the bug report correctly, the status is marked as resolved, this would mean there is a solution to it, but I just can not seen it on the bug reporting site. Am I missing something?

The issue has been resolved by installing Qt 4.5 snapshot (very buggy right now).

Qt 4.5 stable will come out in March, so lets wait :slight_smile:

Thanks again for explanation. I’ll wait too :slight_smile:

if you don’t mind not having 3d effect you could turn off composite in x-org

Section “Extensions”
Option “Composite” “off”

Thanks tom_enos, can you tell me where these file x-org is, just in case I change my mind :slight_smile:

xorg.conf is in /etc/X11

Thanks again.
