[Bug 1072206] [NEW] Window content is black


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Ubuntu 12.10 64bit (updated from 12.04) / NVIDIA GeForce 8 proprietary

This bug happens to me from 12.04 from some update I think.
It appears mostly when I open a new application and only ocassionally.
As temporary "solution" creating some other event like opening Unity dash or opening some next window, etc. fix it. Then window content is refreshed and I can see all correctly.
Same with stable and experimental nvidia drivers.

Screenshot of this bug is attached.

 Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console
 on the primary VGA device. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver
 requires the use of a text-mode VGA console. Use of other console
 drivers including, but not limited to, vesafb, may result in
 corruption and stability problems, and is not supported.
