I've just subscribed to this forum. For me, using ASUS EeePC 701 Surf 4G, the solution (also working on Arch and other distros) was VERY simple. Just add the

Option "Tiling" "False"

to xorg.conf as shown below (the text between >> and << is xorg.conf), then everything works perfect, no kernel change needed.


# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration
# tool, using values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package
# upgrades *only* if it has not been modified since the last upgrade
# of the xserver-xorg package.
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done
# previously in this file, now are automatically configured by the
# server and settings here are ignored.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically
# updated again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
