After few minutes using, desktop and fonts in unity-menu goes blurry. See screenshot:

In all applications (browser etc.) graphics seem to be allright. After rebooting problem disappears for few minutes. Changing the wallpaper also makes the desktop clear (for a while) but fonts are still blurry.

I have ubuntu 12.04 and windows xp dualbooted.

I had the same issue with my other computer... I think it had something to do with my super-slow graphics card –  MiJyn Nov 29 '12 at 16:46
    
I doubled my RAM (to 2gb) and it seems to be working great now! So it was obviously a hardware problem. Sorry to interrupt. –  Bonfire Nov 29 '12 at 20:25
    
Glad to know it's fixed! –  MiJyn Nov 29 '12 at 20:45
