Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have 11.10 installed and it works great. The OS sits on a Dell XPS with Nvidia graphics. Has anyone run into display flickering when running virtual box on ubuntu? The display jumps from the last settings (1920) to 1450 something and it does this repeatedly. This only occurs when running virtual box. It was doing it when running flash videos but I made change the xorg config file to default settings and that has been corrected.

I've had display flickering issues with Nvidia, when running Compiz, but what exactly is 1920 and 1450? –  mikewhatever Nov 17 '11 at 1:26
