Greetings,

I'm curious if anyone else is having an issue with the recent versions of Chromium?

After I did an @world update, I tried chromium-36.0.1985.67 and was getting artifacting on the desktop where I would minimize Chromium and it would look like it was still on the desktop (e.g. artifacts), even though the taskbar entry looked like it was minimized. I then downgraded to chromium-35.0.1916.153 figuring that it might help to go to the "stable" version, and was getting the same behavior with the additional behavior of having Chromium leave artifacts on other desktops other than the one it was launched from. When I run chromium from the terminal, I get the following output:
Code:
 ~ $ chromium                                   
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf", line 14: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated.

Is anyone else seeing or familiar with these kinds of issues?

To clarify, I am running kernel version 3.10.25 on amd64 with an Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT and nvidia-drivers-337.25 USE="X acpi multilib tools -pax_kernel -uvm"

Any ideas? TIA.

Well,

Apparently this is a known issue in Chrome's/Chromium's bugzilla: Issue 370022: switching virtual desktops leaves artifacts from the previous desktop.

I got on the mailing list so I will update here as I hear and/or find anything more about this.

As a note on this; Due to the switching from GTK to Aura for both Chrome and Chromium, they may have introduced a new dependency on xcompmgr for future versions of the browser. As of this writing, it seems the only valid workaround for this issue.

Well,

With these issues with chromium's rendering and Aura, combined with the loss of the java plugin, I have decided that my resolution is to go back to chromium-34.0.1847.116 for now.

As a thought... Would it be prudent to possibly put chromium-34.0.1847.116 back into the active portage tree?

Just my 2¢.

HTH.
