Hi,

I have a problem with my graphics settings in KDE or Gentoo depending on the point of view. Everywhere were I would usually see a color gradient I'm seeing this:

I am suspecting it has something to do with my recent driver update from 319.23 to 319.32 and a shadder failling in the graphics settings. I also tried reloading the nvidia driver with modprobe but without any result. I also recompiled the entire kernel and emerge -e the system and the world files, but I still have the same problems. Even downgrading to the older driver version didn't change anything. Therefore I'm running out of idears what can be the cause for this problem. I suspect it has to be some settings files but in a matter of fact I'm clueless.

My lspci is:

Hey there!

This actually isn't a problem with your video driver but rather, a problem involving GTK and KDE. I'm currently not running linux where I'm at (staying with relatives for awhile) so I'm running a bit from memory here, but what you'll want to do is check either the Application Appearance settings or the Window Behaviour settings in System Settings. There you should find an option to modify the color scheme for GTK applications. If it is set to "Bubble" or something like that, change it to something else. If it's not on Bubble but it's on something else, I think what you have to do is remove the .gtkrc file in your home directory and restart. I wish I remembered the solution a bit more specifically because I had this problem a couple times using KDE.

Good luck! :D
