compiz+record my desktop + 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation C77 [GeForce 8200M G] [10de:0845] (rev a2) = inverted colors and bad play back

Asked by Joseph Mills on 2011-06-13

This is my first time posting on launchpad so I do not know if this is the right way to go about this or not. I think that I have found a bug in my system. I was going to report it but thought that I should ask first.

So when I launch compiz with gtk-recored my desk top it records but then . The play back is horrible and the colors are inverted, here is some info about my system

lspci --nn | grep VGA

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation C77 [GeForce 8200M G] [10de:0845] (rev a2)

uname -a

Linux om@om 2.6.35-28-generic #50-Ubuntu SMP Fri Mar 18 19:00:26 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux

I am using ubuntu 10.10

I have tried everything that I can think of using other desktop recorder to changing the nivida driver changing the formate of the file building a new nivida driver. so I think that this is a bug but I want to be sure before I file it. I would like to say thanks to the people that read this and also I look forward to learning more about launchpad and what it has to offer.
