This is using the Nouveau 3D support from mesa-drivers-experimental, right?

Nouveau 3D problem with texture from pixmap textures for windows without an alpha channel. Assigning to the DDX driver though as likely or more likely to be a Mesa problem.
Comment 4 Fabien Archambault 2010-06-18 03:38:34 EDT
Same problem here. Even with an icc dedicated to the screen the colors are too bright in gnome-shell so it is unusable.

I am having the same problems here.  Fedora 13, not modifications, just newest nouveau driver and experimental 3d driver.
Comment 7 Gregor Hlawacek 2010-10-10 13:54:03 EDT
This still exists :-(
Comment 8 Bruce Cowan 2010-10-10 14:54:48 EDT
I've found that this no longer happens with Fedora 14 with a 9800 GT.
Comment 9 Ben Skeggs 2010-10-10 19:45:58 EDT
Ok, this isn't going to be fixed in F13.  The numerous changes to the nouveau 3D drivers since F13 aren't easily backported and would require changes to other parts of the Mesa stack and potentially regress other drivers too.

However, as mentioned, F14 should work OK, and if not, these issues will be fixed there instead.
