New nvidia-drivers fix the fill error

After the version bump yesterday to x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-275.09.07, the problem with LXterminal drawing a black box in the upper-left corner of the primary display is no longer present. Though I don’t see any specific mention of this bug in the release highlights, the changelog can be found here:

    I noticed one problem with Flash, first I thought something is wrong with my display and I got scared. Flash images are partly displayed in a kind of blob on other workspaces.
    I never had this black box issue…

  1. Thanks for the advice. I had actually considered switching to nouveau considering how annoying that last bug was.

    Hey, that’s nice to hear. With the last nvidia binary driver I had huge problems when resizing windows in KDE. That was so annoying that I switched to nouveau. If you don’t want do play games, that could also be an alternative for you.
