[Bug 1510660] Re: Screen icons and text corrupted after 15.10 upgrade


John Deakin, as mentioned in
you don't need to create new reports.

Despite this, to see if this is already resolved in Ubuntu, could you
please test http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ and advise to
the results?

  Screen icons and text corrupted after 15.10 upgrade

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since upgrading to 15.10 I am having trouble with most of the desktop
  and other icons and some text. The problem seems to be that the screen
  painting lines are out of synch.

  This means that most of the icons on the desktop are almost unreadable
  and spread laterally. Also PDF documents are unreadable. The raster
  graphics that I have imported into Inkscape are unusable.

  I am using a Dell Vostro 220 and Dell screens. The affect is the same
  whether I use a wide screen or a more conventional profile.
