[SOLVED] Glitches in Screen (ATI video problems?)

Since upgrading to gnome-shell 3.4 I see glitches on my screen all over the time. Not quite sure if it's really related to the upgrade of gnome-shell or maybe also for other packages.

This is annoying, especially when working in the terminal when suddenly text is not readable anymore.

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Device 9488

Here a list of (relevant?) packages installed on my machine:

  • testing/gnome-shell 3.4.0-1 (gnome) [installed]

  • extra/xf86-input-acecad 1.5.0-3 (xorg-drivers xorg) [installed]

Re: [SOLVED] Glitches in Screen (ATI video problems?)

I'm not sure what the problem is.

You could try using the prebuilt radeon driver packages, that I found out by reading this section of the wiki recently: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ra … MS_enabled (the spiralinear server)

I think the package is called "xf86-video-ati-git".

Looks like cairo-1.12.0 related stuff.

xorg-server-1.12.1-2 and xf86-video-ati 6.14.4-4 that are currently in [testing] should fix it.
