Description Jens Petersen 2005-12-15 08:46:32 UTC
Description of problem:
Since around fc5test1 (when modular X went into rawhide) I have been
experiencing bad rendering in gnome and gtk apps, particularly of icons
but also of tabs say in firefox and gtk apps.

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install rawhide or fc5test1 on HP Desktop dx5150
2. log into gnome
3. move mouse pointer around screen, start firefox, gtk-demo, etc  

Actual results:
3. Broken icons rendering and placement on panel, desktop, dialogs, etc.

Expected results:
3. normal rendering as before around fc5test1.

Additional info:
Vesa driver being used for X.
KDE apps and desktop are unaffected.
During installation no rendering problems seen in anaconda gui.

I'd be very interested in seeing the results of cairo's test suite, ("make
check"), in the cairo source tree.

I'd be glad to help generate that if I could be provided with access to a
machine that demonstrates these problems.


Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2005-12-16 04:53:45 UTC
I tried to rebuild our cairo package yesterday but rawhide still seems
too broken.  Suppose I could reinstall test1 and do it there.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2005-12-17 12:31:01 UTC
I ran "make check" in cairo-1.0.2/ on a fc5test1 install and got
"All 59 tests behaved as expected (5 expected failures)".

With current anoncvs I got one segfault for ft-font-create-for-ft-face
but all the other tested passed.

If you want to see the test output, please let me know.

This looks like a dupe of bug #174101 / bug #174113.

Is xorg.conf set to use the 'vesa' driver? If it is there is a bug with 24 bit
colour. Either change xorg.conf to use the 'radeon' driver (this is probably the
best way), or drop down to 16 bit colours. I don't think it has anything to do
with cairo.

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2005-12-18 08:49:33 UTC
Thank you very much - in the back of my mind I suspected it
was something like this. :)
