  • 8.42.3 + compiz = Extreme screen distortions

    Hey. First of all I must say that the 8.42.3 is working great, increased performance overall over here on my x1950 Pro.

    I'm currently running Ubuntu Gutsy x86 and after upgrading compiz to 0.6.0 I get these extreme screen distortions and it didn't help to revert to 0.5.2 which should be stable (in the ubuntu repos).

    Here's a screenshot of what I'm currently experiencing:

    My xorg.conf:

    There's no errors displaying in Xorg.0.log (it wouldn't fit in here so I can reply with it if you need to have a look at it)

    Greets, peol.

    Option "AIGLX" "true"
    to
    Option "AIGLX" "on"
    and
    Option "Composite" "true"
    to
    Option "Composite" "Enable"

    It could help.

      Thanks for the quick response, however, it didn't work. :/

      I might add that the plugins (wobbly windows for example) all work, cube also.

        Could be be resolution dependant?
        I've never managed to get 1440x900 working on my X1950 Pro without some kind of graphical corruption...

          Never had any problems with 1440x900. I did try it just now (decreased to 1024x768, also changed the "detected screen resolution"-option in compiz), didn't work. Never seen anything like this before.

            In which case, I realise that there's something very wrong with my install of fglrx in 64bit Feisty - I lost 1440x900 somewhere between 8.37 and 8.40...

                I guess it has something to do with it
                This could be a point! Having distorted screen too,exactly the same errors. Running X1600Pro on Kubuntu

                  I'm guessing your distortion looks the same as mine (the image doesn't work). Some things just black, some things diagonal patterns of bright colours, some things kind of smeared horizontally? But the window decorations (emerald) work.

                  I wish I knew what was happening!

                  Strangely, I am also running 1440x900, and get those visual not supported claims. Hmm.

                      The thing is, I had it working directly after I upgraded from 8.40 to 8.42, but I managed to destroy compiz somehow. Anyway, I was running Gutsy beta (fully updated) and I needed a reformat due to me emigrating and fully removing Windows.

                      And you know what, now it works again.

                      Edit: However, the errors still occurs in the Xorg.0.log so I guess it's not related after all.
