Gnome screen wrapping
I'm using Fedora Core 7 i386 and Gnome 2.18.3 as a visual environment. I've got a problem with screen wrap: about 1/8" of the left-hand edge of the display shows up on the right side of the screen, as though it's wrapped around.
I know this is not the monitor's fault, as then entire screen image, including the wrapped portion, moves when I adjust the image location through the monitor.
It's likely not the card's fault either, as I don't see any indication of the wrap while the machine is booting up, on the bios display or the Fedora bootup screen (I'll double-check this, though).
That leaves the visual environment. It looks to me as though there's a few hundred bits chopped off the beginning of the raster scan when it paints the screen image, resulting in the entire image being out of phase by that many pixels; this would result in an image like what I'm seeing.
Another artifact of the problem is that the mouse pointer is a few pixels off where the system thinks it is, so I have to click to the right of a radio box to get that box checked, whereas if I click on the box, I miss it.
Does anybody have the slightest idea whether this condition is adjustable, configurable, or fixable?
I'm getting the same issue. Did you ever resolve this? Any path forward would be greatly appreciated.
Your path forward thus requires researching alternative video drivers for your installation.
PS. I had no similar issues after I upgraded from Core 7 to Core 8. I'm at Core 12 now, and have never had a similar installation problem, even though I installed Core 8, Core 9, and Core 12 from scratch (not using the upgrade path, but installing as if new.) Apparently whatever was wrong in the Core 7 installation was fixed thereafter.
