KDE 4 - Weird skewed colors in qt4 programs after launching gtk programs.
Strange little annoying issue. I've seen this on another similar setup but that problem is significantly more intermittent than mine.
-Dell Inspiron 9400 with ATI Radeon Mobility x1400 using the open source radeon driver (no xorg.conf file)
-Slackware 13.0 with 18.104.22.168-smp generic kernel (also occurs with huge-smp) and KDE 4.2.4
-Installed kde3 and qt3 libraries for earlier versions of Amarok and K3B (which were installed long before this issue began, but I figured I'd include the info anyhoo...)
On a fresh boot, I can open as many instances of a Qt4 app as I wish (Dolphin is my main test subject) until I launch at least two gtk applications. At this point, every color on the screen gets horribly skewed, almost looking inverted (not a true inversion though). As soon as I switch back to any gtk application, the colors are back to normal. Switching back to a qt4 app and the colors are whacky again. Wash rinse repeat. Killing the X server and logging back in returns things to normality until I start launching gtk applications....
I'm wanting to lean towards the radeon driver having issues as the other laptop I've seen this happen to also used a similar ATI graphics chip.
I'll attach my xorg log and a picture (later).
Thanks in advance for taking the time to look at this issue!!!
(EDIT: Took Firefox out of the equation as a possible cause as I tried launching a few instances of other gtk apps and had the same result...)
