once in a while i get rendering errors.  ex.  home documents and then you see weird text that is incomplete etc.  also when you right click a file inside a folder to say delete - the list is incomplete rendering.  only way is to reboot but is that a moksha error?  anyway of resetting/rebooting without having to completely reboot or shutdown and retsart the system in toto? what is the cause of it?

 

thank you.





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

What theme are you using? Do these rendering issues only happen in the file manager? Are you using a compositing manager?

anyone have any clues what is causing this?  will restarting moksha in the main menu help? i never tried it so not sure exactly what that does...

Maybe you could install simple screen recorder and just fire it up, let it record, and then post the video of the issue to youtube?

I'm not sure if this is related or if I should open a new topic, etc, but...

 

This past weekend I installed a new-to-me Nvidia GTX 570 and used the Nvidia Settings GUI to span my desktop across two monitors and used absolute positioning to place them.  I saved the config...verified everything worked on reboot, etc.

 

Now the odd issue is, when I open 2+ windows/programs/apps/dialog boxes, I get this terrible instability where all of the open windows/dialog boxes start strobing like crazy, I am unable to select anything, move anything etc.  This continues until I close/force close some of the windows/dialog boxes, then back to situation normal.  The system hasn't crashed per se or created any type of error logs.

 

I'm wondering if something in my xconfig is not happy due to running integrated graphics and then switching to PCIe?

 

Any suggestions?  Sounds sort of like a rendering error, so I thought this may be the place to list this...  Thank you, everyone!

@ graywizard

 

If you use CTRL + ALT + END Moksha will reset itself, leaving all your open windows as they were. So that may be worth a try whenever this happens again.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Thank you, Charles and Jeff - I'll give both of these a try tonight and see how it goes.

 

Jeff - the segfault seems likely now that I have re-read that post - thanks for the link!

 

[edit]

 

So far so good with the proposed!  Thank you once again!

well it happened again today but i was busy using the laptop and i did try the cntrol alt end as charles suggested but it remained the same.  i was in the midst of an order and processing checkout for seeds for the garden when it happened so i had to finish and then rebooted.  did not get a chance to take a snapshot.  so i guess the resetting moksha doesn;t do it - fix it that is.
