Bug Description

Binary package hint: vino

When using remote desktop (vino vnc server on ubuntu 6.06). I'm having problems with the window not being refreshed properly. I'm on a local lan, using the ubuntu vncviewer or realvnc client under windows.

When using xchat, or any program that has list boxes I'm getting ghost data the moment new data is added to it. text seems to scoll on top of other text, totally unreadable/unusable.

I've upgraded the server to edgy. I no longer experience this problem. (I also changed video card drivers from fglrx to the OSS ones, perhaps that has something to do with it)

I guess this can be closed.

Hello, I can confirm that the problem indeed is vino in combination with fglrx.
This problem started on dapper, i'm now on edgy, and after installing fglrx again. The problem is back.

I've attached a screenshot showing xchat/with nautilus shining through.

evil proprietary drivers, reassigning to linux-restricted-modules-2.6.17

I realize there really is nothing you can do about proprietary drivers. been trying to find an upstream for this but can't find one.
Is there a way to report bugs to ATI?

there is probably an email somewhere on the ATI website for that

Same problem, but the free drivers don't work on the machine I'm trying to control ...

Same problem for me. Definitely seems to be an incompatibility of vino/fglrx.
Has anyone reported it to ATi?
