Damn them jackalopes, damn them to hell!!!
Made the mistake of upgrading to Ubuntu 9.04 before the official release date so now blender doesn’t refresh the screen properly making it unusable. You would think I would learn since something like this happens every time I upgrade during the pre-release phase but apparently not.
I’m currently downloading the Fedora 11 snapshot live cd to see if it’s a ubuntu thing or an xorg thing, they (intel) have done a whole lot of work on the intel graphics drivers between 8.10 and now so that could be the problem.
On a positive note I was playing with compiz and it works amazingly well, even did the wobbly window thing with a video playing like it should.
Kind of curious if anyone else has taken the beta plunge (or tested out the live cd) and has problems with blender.
