Google Earth produces 'holes' in planet earth
Some info here also relates to my other thread "cursor ghosts".
I was experiencing mouse cursor ghosts appearing in GIMP images when the mouse pointer was rolled over an image. Also when I was editing posts in my web browser or editing URLs in the address bar, I would get odd vertical lines appearing, somewhat like this:
So, I installed the nvidia-glx driver using
apt-get install nvidia-glx
I then edited my xorg.conf file so that it uses the nvidia-glx driver.
The cursor ghosting problem was fixed, but now Google Earth has gone crazy.
What happens is holes appear in the Planet Earth and all of the maps or tiles get scattered around. Basically Antractica appears where Ayres rock should be, Bits of Africa appear in Europe etc.
Google Earth works all be it jumpy and jittery if I use the "nv" driver, but then I have to put up with cursor ghosting.
Does anybody know how I can have my cake and eat it too with Google Earth working and no cursor ghosting/artifacting problems?
