I am running ubuntu 10.04 64bit on a macbook pro, using the nvidia-drivers version 260.19.29. As of a recent kernel update, all the semi-transparent parts of my theme show as full white.

This means: no gradients on scrollbars and buttons, 'inverted' dividers in context menu's, full white gnome-do panel etc.

Does anyone know what causes this and how I can fix it? Screenshot examples below.

  • Scrollbars:

  • Gnome-do:

  • 'inverted' dividers in the context menu:

After a recent Nvidia drivers update, this seems to have fixed itself (that or the kernel update.) :)

Maybe it's a stupid answer: have you tried with a different theme?

Not a stupid answer, but yeah, it does that with different themes as well (Though some less noticable). Gnome-do isn't part of the theme and always has the problem. –  Kilian Dec 28 '10 at 12:47

I have a Macbook Pro 6.1 and had strange things happen when using 64bit Ubuntu. I installed 32bit with no issues and everything is working.

I found everything I needed here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro

You can get 32bit to support up to 4Gb Ram (pae), and to be honest, there is very little in performance.
