Glitchy Graphics
« on: January 29, 2014, 07:50:45 pm »
Hi guys

Seeing as i having a break from my NAS issues, I,m building a PC for a friend of mine, I had lying in the attic, anyway I've installed PM4 and it's running perfect except for a graphics issue which I'm sure is driver related, you tube videos are covered in a sort of green purple hue and only show half a screen on the horizontal and it's the same in chromium or firefox, I ran an mp4 music video in the video player and it was much better but the colours were washed out and showing a very slight hue, I've installed ubuntu restricted extras & lubuntu restricted extras but it made no difference,

I'm using the onboard graphics

Code: [Select]
gordon@Gordons-PC ~ $ lshw -c display
WARNING: you should run this program as super-user.

Any help would be much appreciated

Just to update I installed a geforce graphics card and the graphics are perfect so it looks like it was a driver issue or the onboard chip is faulty, the downside is the geforce card is a bit noisey but if it's likely to be difficult getting the onboard working right I'm happy to leave it as is





Many Thanks

I think you might be outta luck with that 82845 chipset. It looks like it has not been supported for a while.
But you may get it to work with the download from Intel® Graphics Drivers for Linux

Hi SeZo

Thanks but it looks like i could be opening up a can of worms , I don't want to spend any more time on this than i have to, the graphics are working perfectly albeit the card's a little noisy but he can live with that or get himself another graphics card


Thanks again

If it's just flash video .. have you tried disabling hardware acceleration in the flashplayer ?

Installing the geforce card sorted the flash video problem as well
