I'm getting a bit annoying trails when moving windows in X.
It doesn't matter if I use KDE, Fluxbox, XFCE, etc - all the same effect.
shows what the problem is exactly.
This happens when I move a window over another.
In this case the Ktorrent window over Opera.
Also there's another "effect", specific to KDE, that I've noticed: here
It happens every time I choose Open new tab.
Also, when moving windows fast one over the other,
all the icons of the underlying window disappear,
the text also, only the outlines of the window remain.
The interesting thing is that when I enable the Composite Extension in X,
these problems disappear...
However, I don't want to use Composite for various reasons I won't list here.
I have tried using all kinds of combinations of X11 versions,
xorg.conf and window managers. And it happens on a clean install also;
and using a liveCD, too.
When i googled a few days ago I read somewhere that it could
be a bug in the videocard chipset/driver or something...
I read the man page of the radeon driver searching for
options to put in xorg.conf, which might help, but nothing did.
So, if anybody has any ideas why this happens, I'll be glad
to hear from you.
I know it may seem like a detail but I just wanna know why it happens
