Please, have a look at the screen-shots in this report of you. They are broken! 💔

Micha, if you have a problem with Ubuntu (not Mint), it will help immensely if you filed a new report via a terminal:
ubuntu-bug xorg

Please ensure you have the package xdiagnose installed, and that you click the Yes button for attaching additional debugging information.

Also, please feel free to subscribe me to it.

Hi,
but I do not want to install Ubuntu again only for a bugreport which eventually
is not even possible cause Ubuntu was almost unusable with these defect
graphics/desktop - Mint is working almost except gaming, all Ubuntu-distros I
tried were defect directy after install and first startup with these graphical
problems and almost unusable - and I do not want to delete my almost working
Mate now only for a bugreport...
Thanks anyway, but the problem the x1250 have is definately not Ubuntu-related,
every distro I tried has problems - it must be a mesa / ati-driver problem or
something else, not distro-specific.

Greets, Micha
