EXA graphics acceleration: incorrect background colours in Nautilus windows
Last modified: 2008-03-21 18:12:22 EDT
Description of problem:
If the EXA acceleration method is chosen over XAA, all Nautilus windows take on
'random' background colours. Using the Nautilus colour preferences dialogue,
attempting to set the background to white makes no difference, the 'random'
colour remains unchanged, whereas attempting to set the background to black will
change the colour, but not to the intended black. I am using the default Fedora
8 theme, and the problem afflicts both composited and non-composited desktops.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am not sure whether this is a Nautilus or Xorg problem - EXA is known to be
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Toggle commented-out line "AccelMethod" in attached xorg.conf
With EXA enabled, clicking on 'Home' on main menu bar will open window with
apparently arbitrary background colour. Drilling down through the directory
hierarchy will keep producing new windows with new background colours. The
problem also affects Nautilus in its System Tools->File Browser mode.
Default theme background colour should be used.
Graphics card Mobility Radeon 9200, using open radeon driver.
