After applying the last set of updates, I can only get GNOME or KDE to display on about 3/4 of the display area from the top left corner to about 3/4 way down diagonally for both display managers. The jpg for the background covers the whole area of the display.

Is anyone else seeing such a problem?

Bug report:


Don't know if it's related, but compiz isn't working for me after the
last update.

I get:

[rodd localhost ~]$ compiz --replace &
[1] 3055
[rodd localhost ~]$ compiz: No GLXFBConfig for default depth, this isn't
going to work.
compiz: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

[1]+  Exit 1                  compiz --replace
[rodd localhost ~]$ metacity &
[1] 3058
[rodd localhost ~]$ GTK Accessibility Module initialized

[rodd localhost ~]$

I have a nv where the problem lies set to 1152x864 @ 75 where the problem is showing up. This screen is the secondary display on a CRT display. The other screen appears normal and is an ati set to 800x600 on an ldc display. I have not seen such behavior with the display managers before. Even xfce is effected. Apparently the desktop managers are not getting the correct information for the full span of the screen, The strange thing is that the background image covers the whole screen and the mouse can travel outside where the desktops are limited to.

I tried use metacity but tried compiz --replace and the output is similar as to what you were getting except for compiz never working with my setup ever in the past either.
