I've recently installed elementary os (0.3.2) on all my computers and I must congratulate the development team for finally getting most of the UI right. Perhaps even better than my experience with Mac OS X (the highest compliment I can think of).
That being said, there is a graphics problem with my macbook (early-2008). Although the os is performing spectacularly on this laptop, I seem to get graphical artifacts when changing between workspaces, or getting notifications. The artefacts appear as if the frames are shattering. Upon turning off notifications and animations, the problem is less frequent. I suspect that this is a case of obsolete integrated graphics (Intel GMA X3100), but I wanted to be sure, because the system is running fast and there is no lag in graphics as such. I'm unable to capture the shattering in a screenshot. For the following command:
sudo lshw -c video
I get this output:
*-display:0 description: VGA compatible controller product: Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (primary) vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 03 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 resources: irq:28 memory:d0100000-d01fffff memory:c0000000-cfffffff ioport:6110(size=8)
The other problem I'm facing is regarding shut down and suspend. Sometimes, the laptop does not recover from suspend. Sometimes during shutdown, the laptop gets stuck at the elementary os logo. I'm forced to hard restart the system in both cases.
Any known cause/solution for the problem?
