I've been using debian -testing with kde for over 10 years, and although not
terribly pc-competent, it's worked pretty well. But it's getting more-and-more
The latest upgrades have left me with what looks like a graphics problem: I
have an nvidia card, and a while ago on an upgrade I had with great difficulty
to move to the nouveau graphics driver. Since more recent upgrades, iceweasel
now shows funny artefacts affecting the text, but when you define a block or
move the area off-screen and back again, they disappear.
Is that a graphics problem?
Occasionally I have seen the same behaviour with other applications.
Right now it's with xsane: the preview window is so graphically challenged, it
makes the app unusable.
Makes me wonder if this is a problem with gtk applications generally.
If anyone can offer a word of advice or comfort, many thanks in advance.
