Wrong rendering of several gtk-themes with proprietary nvidia driver
Last modified: 2010-11-17 17:35:20 EST
Description of problem:
There are several glitches in parts of the gtk theme. I'll attach a screenshot so that one could better see what I mean.
Locations of glitches:
- open a new tab button in firefox
- upper panel: cpu usage progressbars
- lower panel: window list
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rpm -qa| grep cairo
It occurs with clearlooks and murrine themes on a proprietary nvidia driver. I tried various versions of the nvidia driver 253 and 260 both installed via rpm and the proprietary installer. The problem doesn't appear with Nodoka so I use that at the moment.
There are several bugs on the ubuntu launchpad:
I am not quite sure if it is the same problem but at least a very similar one.
So we figured out on IRC that this was caused by a broken nvidia driver. So I'm closing this.
Or use cairo with a proper patch http://www.mediafire.com/?bk8b3gjr3zccbub
