    Switching tabs not working (alt+tab), once a screen go background, getting back to it is vvery difficult, now now i made chrome always on top.

    When i try reverting to default open source driver, i get error

    Code:
    [email protected]:~$ sudo ppa-purge ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers
    [sudo] password for boby: 
    Updating packages lists
    PPA to be removed: oibaf graphics-drivers
    Warning:  Could not find package list for PPA: oibaf graphics-drivers
    [email protected]:~$
    What should i do ? sos ...---...
    I read at Ubuntu Forums that you switched to Catalyst in meantime... anyway this issue was fixed in the PPA in the 12 hours ago build.

    Also, the PPA can be reverted only if it's still enabled. When you disable it ppa-purge cannot revert the packages.

    • @oibaf Thanks for the reply. First time using ppa-purge, i re-added the repo and done ppa-purge it worked properly. I learned many new stuff by trying this PPA, i will try again after taking some rest

      • Hi again everyone.

        I created a PPA that is simply oibaf's PPA + Gallium Nine. It is scheduled to automatically update twice a day.

            Google Earth has caught signal 11.
            It was working with mesa 10.3 before. The gpu is intel ironlake. OS is Ubuntu 14.04 (purging the ppa and it works again with stock Ubuntu driver) Anyone has similar problem?

            • Today's update fixed it.

              • There is currently an issue with 32bit apps suffering some big slow downs:

                https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bu...36#add_comment

                I have no idea how this works, but judging by the comments it has something to do with compiler and fix is up to those maintaining builds (correct me if I'm wrong). If you could take a look at this Oibaf, that'd be awesome

                  Yeah -mtune=generic works slow recently for some 32bit usecases on radeon, so at least -mtune=pentiumpro seems to be needed to bring back the speed.

                  • This is a regression, so let's see a bit how things evolve before adding a workaround for this PPA only, that may also have other drawbacks (tuning for an old CPU may slowdown on other CPU) .

                    Until at least someone bisect the bugged commit.

                      You can ignore those NSS errors. Everyone gets them and they have nothing to do with the graphics. What version of GE do you use? Version 7.1.1.1580 or later usually crashes when run thanks to provided Qt4 libs.
