How can I deal with the colour problems that the latest Nouveau driver provides? As you can see from the attachment, this causes transparency where it shouldn't, red where it should be grey and in other dialogues, it actually hides text (which I guess is a manifestation of the text being transparent).
I've tried downgrading
libdrm-nouveau2 to version 2.4.67-1 (which according to apt-cache showpkg libdrm-nouveau2 is the only over version available to me) but that didn't do anything.
I have an nVidia GeForce GTX 750 running Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit. I have tried the proprietary drivers, but they cause freezing, probably in connection with the containers I'm running.
This is what I have for Nouveau:
$ dpkg -l *nouveau* Desired=Unknown/Install/Remove/Purge/Hold | Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend |/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad) ||/ Name Version Architecture Description +++-=============================================================-===================================-===================================-================================================================================================================================ ii libdrm-nouveau2:amd64 2.4.91-2~16.04.1 amd64 Userspace interface to nouveau-specific kernel DRM services -- runtime ii xserver-xorg-video-nouveau 1:1.0.12-1build2 amd64 X.Org X server -- Nouveau display driver
Edit: meh! I just went w/the onboard Intel graphics driver. Works fine now.
