XFCE 4.8.1 - Jittery screen issue


Hello,

I am useing xfce-4.8 desktop environment on my linux kernel version 2.6.28. I am facing issue when using "Balou" splash engine.
After login panel, when I enter username and password, I see a gittery screen coming for a second before the desktop comes up.
Please advice what could be the issue here.




Thanks,
Parthraj

If composting is turned in in Settings. Try turning it off. If only a small glitch.

Then I would ignore it.

Howdy and Welcome.

Hi rokytnji,

Thanks for your quick response. I am talking about a snow screen that comes up before the desktop screen.
I have attached a snap of the snow screen for reference.

Thanks,

I take it you mean the above since you did not include a link to what you are talking about.

Code:
lspci -vnn | grep VGA -A 12
readout might help also. As well as a

Code:
lspci -knn
and a

Code:
uname -a
