This is a strange little problem that I can't figure out for the life of me.
I'm using kde 3.4.2 on slack 10.2 with a geforce 2mx 64mb agp card with the nvidia
I like to set my panel to use the faked transparency effect and have never had any
problems at all with it until just yesterday. What happens is, if I start an application
(amarok for example) that places an icon in the system tray, the background/transparency
in the tray gets a little offset/garbled/whatever you want to call it. Then if I right click on the
icon and quit the application, there's an odd graphics artifact on top of the systray as well.
I just can't explain it, the ony thing I have done lately was play with the composite manager
and -all- of the entries in xorg.conf have been removed that apply to that, and transparency is
turned off in the control center under window behavior/transparency. I even thought I might
have garbled something somehow so I made a backup of important things and wiped the
partition and completely reinstalled slack but I still get this strange artifacting on the panel if
I try to use the fake transparency. I could post a couple of screenshots to show what I
mean but I haven't posted much yet and the forum said it would block my post if I used any url's.
anyways, has anyone had this problem and is there some way to fix it?
