Previously, I wrote that I have problem that made me regret for upgrading to Natty. To summarize it : Natty + Wine Apps + Intel Graphic = Black Patch.
I was considering going back to 10.04, because even after updating Intel Graphic driver that supposed to fix this bug,only partially solve the problem. I still have black patch in Amibroker on Wine.
The thought of re-installing is not compelling, so I try what I could to fix this bug i.e googling and out of desperation switching window manager back and forth then I noticed something interesting. Every time I switch metacity to compiz and back to metacity the black patch disappear, but re-appear after boot. This made me thinking and hence born this not so elegant fix : reload metacity everytime after login.
To make things clearer this is how to fix black patch on Wine App :
- login with Ubuntu Classic,
- use metacity as window manager,
- update your intel graphic driver with this PPA,
- edit your startup application (Start Menu > System > Preferences > Startup Applications), add this command :
I can not login to the new Ubuntu (with Unity) after applying the driver, that's fine with me. If you like Unity and compiz, don't apply this fix.
