[378.09 Ubuntu 16.10 x64] Buggy windows shadows, controls and wallpaper after standby mode

Version: 378.09

Adicioning “nomodeset” on grub but no efect…

At least your wallpaper isn’t broken… My wallpaper looks like shadow on windows corner.

Issue still exists. Is there any plans to fix it?

No…maybe in the next release.

This issue is present in 375 and 378 drivers…

Here is a “workarround” to fix this, and wait to nvidia devs fix this problem ;(

Work for me!


@experimancer Thank you for sharing.

Given that simply killing compiz process fixes the bad border problem, I have tested a solution that works on my Ubuntu 16.04 system every time after the system wakes. 2 steps solution. Hope it can help others.

Step 1:

I created a script called “fixbadborders” in the directory /lib/systemd/system-sleep.
It contained the following:

This file (or a link to it) must be in the folder /lib/systemd/system-sleep/

Purpose: Kill compiz after system wakes up from sleep.

This will fix bad window borders caused by Nvidia driver 375.39.

kill $(ps -C compiz -o pid=)

Step 2:

Allowed the script to have executable permission with:
sudo chmod +x fixbadborders

This “workaround” does not work well for me. I get a lot of stutters after applying this.

When will nvidia devs fix this? I f*cking bored with this bug.

Lastest beta says it might got fixed:

Can you test it to confirm?
