OK, I've been having an... interesting problem...
I'm using XF86 4.0.1, and have had no problems with it at all until about two days ago... Here's the list of the symptoms:
In GNOME - desktop objects (Namely Icons) have a grey background - rather than showing the desktop bitmap underneath as it should.
Quake III Arena: The video mode is not changing upon game launch - but rather running in a windowed mode. I can manually change the vidmode (CTRL+ALT+-, etc), however since I can't move the Q3A window, that doesn't help too much.
And - anything that should be transparent (Window Manager borders, Icon backgrounds (as in GNOME), etc. is not transparent - but rather a flat grey box around it...
I have an nVidia TNT-based board, and I have the beta nVidia 094 drivers installed (properly, I might add). - removing the driver and changing to the XF86 driver (rather than nVidia's) made no difference.
There is only one change that I made to the system in the time that it stopped working... I installed the OpenMotif Deb's. Removing them didn't do anything to alleviate the problem, either.
And - on a side note, what setting in the XF86Config file do you change to increase the mouse sensitivity?!?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Pinky, are you pondering what I am pondering?
I think so brain, but if we were meant to fly, wouldn't we have been born
