Window scrolling problems Ubuntu 10.10

Asked by Staylor1405 on 2010-12-06

I have intermittent scrolling issues. The window breaks up and only top and bottom scrolls eventually making the page unreadable. It seems to happen mainly online but can also happen with other programmes. I suspect there is a conflict but haven't been able to establish what it is.
The only solution is to reboot and this is getting very wearing.

Yeah these things are pretty poor. You will need an xorg.conf file to define the driver aswell as resolution. You wonlt get 3D accelleration so compiz will not run but you can certainly get good 2D accelleration ok.

You will need to run:

gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

The file will be blank, you can then websearch for the product line to find sample xorg.conf files. Save the new file when you paste in the files you find and reboot to test.

If you don't get a desktop, reboot and hold shift and select recovery mode, then select root. You can then run:

Mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf_old

Then reboot.

Note : in ALL cases, the X in X11 is CAPITALIZED. Linux is very case sensitive, so remember to run the commands, exactly.

Can you help with this problem?
