Bug Description

System Specs:
Prossesor: Intel Pentium Dual-Core @2.00 Ghz
Graphics: Intel g33/g31 express family chipset.

After booting and loging into the system (Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy) when I open the dash the background of it is shown black like the picture given. It doesn't respond to the desktop wallpaper color but when I change the wallpaper in the session the dash background picks up the color of the wallpaper or in other words it appears normal.

Hi Dipak,

Thanks for reporting this bug. This is a duplicate of bug #1232726 and is most likely a Mesa 9.2 issue.
