It looks like the same problem (or a very similar one) is already reported: bug #292297. You may also have a look at bug #363195 and bug #320296, which seem to be about the same chipset. Don't hesitate to provide more info if you can.

thanks, It does indeed look like the same problem, no solution though.
Apparently it has something to do with some PJPG palette some programs (bug #363195 ) . I don't know what to do to now.

Bug 363195 is fixed now so I guess that answers this question.

If you want WoW then you definitely would possibly just like the local linux video games "Wesnoth" and "Glest" even though they don't generally play as online video games however Glest is stunning and slightly spooky where Wesnoth has a few wonderful a laugh campaigns. Both are pretty extraordinary from WoW however well really worth exploring here https://dreamsofsnakes.com/

Can you help with this problem?
