Display scrolling to the left making it hard to select buttons
« on: December 01, 2007, 08:15:27 pm »
Hi guys,

after having loads of fun installing LMCE in all kinds of ways, trying to the the hang of the system, I have stumbled on a thing I have not been able to resolve upto now. Infrequent the picture on my monitor starts shifting to the left, almost like folding around the screen. As my English is not perfect, trying to find this behaviour on the forum and on Google has not resulted in a resolution. So please anybody got a clue, I'm getting tired of rebooting the router about every 20 minutes to get my screen back....

We have seen that on some Hybrid/Cores with nVidia graphics. I will add it to the Mantis bug tracking DB :-)

Thanks, it's indeed a NVidia graphics card. I have seen the same behaviour however on the other hybrid core I have which is running on Xen. That one is running in the least graphical mode. When shutting down the system with the NVidia card the effect becomes worse, until shutdown time ofcourse :-). Both my systems are setup as LMCE first systems, the majority of the problems I have seen start when going into KDE

Add any additional info you feel is important to the Mantis

I have the same thing sometimes, it's usually when I go into the webadmin and change settings there that I get it, and on Nvidias driver.

Hi,
I have also seen this scrolling-to-the-left behavior on my core/hybrid, which has an Nvidia card, but it only happens when the system is getting ready to shutdown.  The rest of the time, the image is stable.

I'm also seen this, and instead of rebooting the router you can simply press ctrl+alt+F1 to go to console and ctrl+alt+F7 to get back to kde and the screen is right again.

I have it most pronounced during shut down as well.
thanks for the tip Nisse, but being a n00b I had no idea, and hopefully one shouldn't need to know these things either  ;)

See the Mantis... this is now fixed under 0710 ;-)

same problem here....  seems to have gone away though, I used Envy to install the nvidia drivers last night and I haven't noticed it again.
