MONITOR JITTERS AFTER SUCCESSFUL INSTALL

Asked by JIMR122783

Had Ubuntu 8.10 rc installed and after boot the monitor screed would jitter ( refresh rate? ) when U 8.10 became available I did a fresh install in the partition in which. the rc had been installed. I took four tries to get a successful install in a free space. When rebooted the jitter returned.

I have been using various linux distrobutions for several ( 10? ) months now, frequently betas, and am focusing on Ubuntu / kbuntu after too many issues with Knoppix. Anyway i know how to use menu. ls etc.

Thank you
JimR

try going to system -> preferences -> Screen resolution to set your refresh rate higher (or just try different refresh rates until you find one that looks good). you may have to lower your screen resolution to get one that looks smooth.
