Flickering smilies?

Postby Gordon » Tue Dec 07, 2010 17:53

I'm not sure when this started; I do seem to remember it not being like this before though.

I have the current version of Sabayon Gnome x64 installed on two desktops and both suffer from the same symptom that many (but not all) animated smilies are flickering on and off, showing just a single image of the animation sequence. The machines are not the same: one is a fairly new Dell system with an ATI Radeon card, the other a noname with a Nvidia card.

It's not a particularly big issue, but the flickering is even more annoying than the animated smilies themselves are. Anyone else experiencing this? Solutions?

If you're speaking about gif animation when you're web-browsing internet using firefox.. Yeah, it's an annoying bug, but from firefox... Not SL.

Just to be sure, try with a different browser...

If you're not speaking about "gif animation when you're web-browsing internet using firefox" then I don't have any idea of what you're talking about.


Good luck!

Hadn't thought of that :oops:

Strange that this bug does not seem to exist on Firefox for Microsoft?

There is a thread here about it:

I found that downgrading cairo via portage worked for me.
