Window contents turn black when maximized in KDE


On Slackware64 13.37 with a Geforce 6150LE + Nvidia 275.09.07, the contents of a window turn black when I maximize it.

For now I've worked around it by disabling desktop effects, but was wondering if anybody had a better solution?

Thanks

After "googling" a bit your problem might be a bug in the newesr Nvidia proprietary drivers, some folks seemed to solve the problem by reverting to the 170.x drivers.

Had exactly the same problem just this morning. I simply replaced the most recent nvidia-driver and nvidia-kernel by the legacy version (173, that is). Everything runs fine now.

By the way, your sig almost made me spit my beer on the keyboard.

Is the 173 series necessary?

I have an Asus M2NPV-VM. I use the on-board Nvidia nForce 430 / GeForce 6150 MCP51 controller. Almost the same chip set as the OP.

I'm using the 195.36.31 drivers on 13.1 and have no problems.

solid black or darkens? There is a 'feature' in KDE, turned on by default, that darkens all but the focused window. It's somewhere in the settings and can be turned off. Personally, that's a horrible feature if you have sloppy focus. But most people don't do that either.

Solid black.

But it's fixed now that I switched to the 173 driver
